Seduced by the Game – Cancer Charity Anthology
OK, you figured it out, right? This week’s guest author is actually a group of talented writers who’ve joined together in support of a very good cause.
Here is what author V L Locey shared with me about this special anthology and how it game about:
Hockey Fights Cancer ™ is an initiative founded in December 1998 by the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players’ Association to raise money and awareness for hockey’s most important fight: the fight against cancer.

OK, so what about those fascinating facts from yesterday? As promised, here’s who’s done what!
The cancer survivor is Cassandra Carr. She says:
I’m a cancer survivor, and had the same kind Mario Lemieux had. I was diagnosed around the same time Mario made his comeback and one of the first things I thought upon getting my diagnosis was, “If Mario Lemieux can come back and play professional hockey, I can at least survive this.”
Biker’s Realm, Mary Todd Lincoln, and Mario Andretti?
Those fascinating facts come from Nikki Worrell:
My husband and I used to own a motorcycle apparel shop called Biker’s Realm. We sold everything but the bike—leather coats, chaps, helmets, etc. I got my motorcycle license about 8 years ago or so and bought a Harley Davidson Low Rider. I don’t have the bike or the store anymore, but I’m thinking a new Harley is in my near future.
I’m related to Abraham Lincoln. Actually, his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln is my great, great, great, etc. Aunt.
I have raced with professional race car drivers (I was a passenger) in Fairmont Park, PA. I got to race in a Dodge Viper and a BMW M3. Very cool experience. I worked in grid for the SCCA at the time (Sports Car Club of America) and also met Mario Andretti who signed my official Texaco racing jacket (Texaco was his Indy sponsor). At other races (Pocono mostly), I’ve seen Paul Newman, Walter Payton, Tom Cruise (we called the SCCA, See Cruise Crash Again when he was there!) and Jason Priestly (NOT a nice guy).
Who once lived in London?
Who ran away to Alaska?
And what about those comics and that wolverine tattoo? That would be V L Locey. She says:
I`m a large Marvel comics nerd. So large, in fact, that I was a moderator for many years at the Marvel.Com website. I also have a tattoo of Wolverine on my left bicep.
