Help me support diabetes research with Brenda Novak


Author Brenda Novak’s son has Type I diabetes. Ten years ago, she decided to do something about it, and she launched Brenda Novak’s Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research, benefitting the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI). In the past nine years, the auction has raised $2 million!

This is the third year my friends and I at have donated to the auction, and I hope you’ll join us in supporting this fantastic cause.

Come check out our goody- and book-filled tote bag, and the amazing and fabulous items that others have donated. Some are author/writing related, but many are not.

Or maybe you’d like to take a hike in New Mexico with autor Douglas Preston?

You could be a character in one of several famous authors’ books (e.g. David Baldacci), spend a day with a world-class bridge player, get a critique from an editor at your favorite publishing house, or take an African safari for two.

All in the name of a cure.

I hope you’ll at least take a look. Thanks!
