Lavender Dreams Cancer Anthology
Ten short stories in this anthology to entertain you. More importantly, the authors and cover artist have generously donated these stories and their royalties to help raise funds for cancer research each year.
Barbara Ehrentreu, Gloria Oren, Lisa J. Lickel, Nan D Arnold, Nathaniel Tower, Rosemary Gemmell, Suzannah Safi, Tanja Cilia, Vicki Batman
MuseItUp Authors dedicate this book to all who have been affected in one way or the other by cancer. All royalties from the sales of this book will be donated each year to a cancer research organization, or hospice in order to further combat and find a cure.
The book is divided into three sections: non-fiction, fiction based on true stories, and fictional stories—ten stories generously donated by the authors to help raise funds for cancer.
This book is dedicated to the memory of one of our dear editors who passed away in 2011 from cancer, Karen McGrath.
You will always be remembered.

I suppose I should review each story individually, but I am not going to do so. I will, however, caution you to read the stories one at a time, as they can become overwhelming if you try to read too many at once. Each piece holds to the high standards of MuseItUp Publishing, Inc. Each piece will move you—make you laugh, cry…think. I highly recommend this book, not just because the proceeds will hopefully help to wipe out this horrible disease, but because it’s a darned good read.
