This is the sixth straight year of donations. Thank you so much for buying my books and making this possible.

Donations have now been made for all royalties received in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and now, 2017, too!

I want to say THANK YOU to all my readers for supporting these groups through your purchase of my stories.

How it works: I donate ten cents out of every single dollar earned in royalties to charity. Each charity’s focus relates to a topic in one of my books (Castro Adobe for Boardwalk Cottage‘s Californio family, or Peace of Mind Dog Rescue for Little Fox Cottage‘s orphaned pup, for example).

In 2017 I began focusing on smaller and local charities so the donations get the most “bang for the buck.” Here are some of the charities currently receiving donations:

Monarch Services/Women’s Crisis Support (helping stop abuse)
Rancho Cielo Youth Services (helping youth succeed in life)
Castro Adobe Restoration Project (helping children learn about local history)
CASA of Santa Cruz (helping kids in the court system)
Care Bags Foundation (helping children worldwide)
Case For Kids (helping foster children)
Peace of Mind Dog Rescue (helping dogs left behind)

These larger charities also received donations in prior years:

Second Harvest Food Bank (2012-2016)
Foster Care 2 Success (2012-2016)
Volunteers of America Northern California Chapter (2012-2015)
CURE Epilepsy (2014-2016)
National Fibromylagia Research Association (no longer active)

I’ll continue to keep you updated on the progress. Thank you again for making this possible.

(Please note that listing these charities does not imply that they endorse my books. They simply receive donations from sales.)
