Caro is the wife of Andrew McPherson, a Canadian playing hockey in Germany’s DEL2. She’s been all over the world while her husband has played professionally but that isn’t why I asked to interview her.
Carmen-Annaliese, a 9 year old Nottingham Panthers fan, will be getting her hair cut on Tuesday 28/11 with a little help from Panthers left-winger Robert Farmer. Farmer will be on hand with his scissors to cut Carmen’s plaits off before a hairdresser on hand will style the youngsters shorter hair.
Carmen will be donating her hair to The Little Princess Trust to make a wig for a child who has lost their own hair through illness or treatment for diseases like cancer. Each of these wigs cost between £350-£500 to make but are provided free of charge by the charity.
Samantha Richardson, Carmen’s mother got in contact with me and asked if I would share her daughters story. Together, not only is young Carmen donating her almost knee length hair, but she wants to raise some money to go towards the costs involved in making the wigs. “Carmen says if she can make just one poorly child smile, she will be happy.” Samantha told me, when I spoke to her a little more in depth about the process. “Cancer is such a cruel disease and effects far too many children. My family and I are season ticket holders to the Nottingham Panthers and I got in contact with them to see if they’d help us out, which they did.”
In order to gather together her fundraising money, Samantha has started a Just Giving page for Carmen which can be found here: Carmen’s Fundraising Page
If you’d be able to help this little girl to raise her target, even £1 would be gratefully received, click through to her page and leave her a message. She’s an inspirational young lady!
Why not share Carmen’s story on your social media and help her to gather even more support?
All fans of Mathieu Roy, or generally any Steelers fans. Through a minor blunder by one or many fans, Sheffield Steelers are being discussed by this guy on twitter!
And apparently you don’t want this Mathieu Roy on your team…
He’s going to get his man…

Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away.
As the youngest and most talented son of the NHL Commissioner, Matty had found the burden of family expectations almost too heavy to carry on even his broad shoulders. He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas.
Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind.
But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can’t let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more?
And we’re back! With the first Behind the Mask of the 2017-2018 season and with the Fife Flyers new netminder Jordan Marr. Jordan was so lovely to talk to and at times (with my husbands’ interjections with questions of his own) we got quite off the topic of hockey, which makes this exactly what it says on the tin- a behind the mask interview. We get to know the Jordan that not everyone gets to see – and thanks to mum Tracy, there will be some never before seen photos of both Jordan and little brother Renny!
Jenson Monroe is everything you could ask for in a man and in a sports romance hero. He’s kind, caring, compassionate, loving… not to mention, he’s absolutely gorgeous with a model physique and abs even Adam Vay would be jealous of. He’s the best in his profession and his position and it would seem he has no flaws. Oh, and he’s the goalie for Toni Aleo’s fictional Nashville Assassins.
All those who follow this blog in some capacity will know I’m a sucker for a hockey romance and Toni Aleo’s books were the first ones I ever read and made me fall in love with the genre.
The cover for the next book has been released and I am beyond excited to read and find out what the Nashville Assassins newest goalie is getting up to!
