Harry Moseley, the boy who raised over £500,000 for Cancer Research UK, is no longer with us – but his legacy lives on.
“Britain’s Kindest Kid”, Harry was more than a nice kid with a big heart; he was a real life hero. A hero with an inoperable brain tumor who tragically lost his battle with cancer at the much-too-young age of 11.
Harry’s, “Help Harry Help Others” campaign continues his fundraising work in hopes that one day soon, there will be a cure for brain tumors. Joining Harry’s quest for research funds are an amazing group of romance writers, along with a wonderful cover artist, who have put together an inspiring anthology to raise money for Cancer Research UK, in memory of Harry Moseley.
“Author Moments II” is a collection of essays written by these talented writers. From the New York Times bestselling lists to the writer who is just beginning their quest, you will find this anthology filled with generous writing advice and anecdotes. It won’t matter where you are on your road to publication or even in your life journey, Author Moments II will fill you with love, laughter and a renewed hope that all things are possible when you care enough to come together and make a difference.
Like real life hero, Harry Moseley.

Excerpt from my essay, Fighting Back
I was originally going to write about how I empowered myself by becoming an indie author. But I couldn’t stop thinking about Harry and how he worked to raise money for Cancer Research UK. By doing so, he was taking back some of his power. This was his way of fighting cancer.
I ’m a breast cancer survivor, and I know how it feels to want to fight this disease. A writer friend is another survivor. I’ve been cancer free for eleven years, but my friend’s cancer recurred—and recurred and recurred and recurred… She’s been fighting it these last eight or nine years. Really fighting. As in losing her hair, getting it back, losing it…
I once told her that I was imagining an army of tiny Hugh Jackmans in her body slaying the cancer cells. Shirtless Hugh Jackmans. I can’t shrink and multiply Hugh Jackman in real life. (If I did have that power, I certainly wouldn’t shrink him.) But I would love if my fictional characters could bring down cancer. My Galaxy Girls overpower human and alien men with their most powerful weapon—pheromones. I think they could zap cancer cells with their pheromones and melt them into puddles.
In my paranormal romance Dragon Blues, my heroine is a martial arts expert and has killed two men (who totally deserve it) before she meets the hero. Cancer totally deserves killing. If my heroine could do it, I can see her using her karate skills to kill the rat-bastard cells. The dragon-turned-into-a-man hero would bestir himself to breathe a plume of fire on the villainous cells as well.
In Cattitude, my heroine would certainly scratch and bite as many cells as possible. In Dead People, my ghost therapist heroine wouldn’t be much help, but the rock star hero would write a song to help raise money.
