Our Team Story

Please consider joining me and the authors of Not a Pipe Publishing in Writing Against the Darkness. As part of the Alzheimer's Association's #TheLongestDay event, we'll be writing from dawn until dusk on the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. (This year we'll be writing on Saturday, June 19th, the day before the summer solstice, because the 20th is Father's Day.) If you are a writer and would like to join us, please let me know and I'll send you an invite. Please consider donating!

Last year we put together a team of writers in various locations. Some of us got together at a beautiful beach house on the Oregon coast. Others wrote in their homes and shared their progress with us via social media. We wrote more than 50,000 words that day. That's right; we completed a full NaNoWriMo in a single day! We raised over $5000 dollars just by asking friends and family to support our team via social media. That's $5000 dollars more of research to find a cure, care for those currently suffering from Alzheimer's, and (I love that The Alzheimer's Association focuses on this) support for the family members who are caring for those afflicted with the disease.


I'm doing what I love to honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. My grandparents, Don and Jean Warner, were afflicted with Alzheimer's/dementia. Today, over 35 million people across the world are living with Alzheimer's, including more than 5 million Americans. In the U.S. alone, more than 15 million caregivers generously dedicate themselves to those with Alzheimer's and dementia. We must take action now, or these numbers will continue to rise.

Together, we can show those facing Alzheimer's disease that they are not alone. Please make a donation today to help the Alzheimer's Association support all those facing the disease, and help the writers from Not a Pipe Publishing and our writer peers write against the darkness. Thank you!
