Considering I've been dubbed by my family as "Fertile Myrtle," it's difficult for me to understand the heartbreak of a couple who wants to have kids, is able to conceive, but each baby has a 75% chance of having a genetic disease that will kill them before they reach their first birthday. For some friends from my hometown, the heartbreak is real. (You can learn more about their story here.) To offset the costs of In-vitro fertilization, some crafty people are banding together to hold an auction fundraiser for them, running from today through Saturday. My participation is a "Your Love Story" book; written by me, of course, and will include photos scrapbooked by my talented cousin, Karen (who is also the orchestrator behind the fundraiser).
I'd appreciate all my readers at least going by the link to check out KJ and Luke's story--and if you want, donate a little bit over there. There's tons of auctions to check out, not just mine, so you might find something in there you can't live without--and the upside is, it all goes to a good cause.
You can see my auction here.

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
