“I have been blessed with many experiences and successes in my life. My greatest blessing was the gift of Love I found in my wife Margot. When she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, it changed me forever. For 9 years, through her battle, Margot taught me how to love, to give and to serve others. When she passed I was overwhelmed by the desire to help as many women as I can who are battling this horrific disease. That’s why I founded Love From Margot. 100% of the proceeds from my book Love Unfiltered and my 2015 release Living In Color will be donated to the Foundation. My life’s work is to help people to discover how they can manifest anything they desire”, explains Mike Murphy. “I am excited to be joining the team at Readers Legacy Inc and Next Century Publishing; I have been thoroughly impressed with Ken and his team. My book reaching best-seller status was confirmation that they know what they are doing. I come into this with my eyes wide open; NCP is a new company and is working through typical challenges. I see myself as a business coach to Ken, a sounding board for the team and a great liaison for our many client authors and book lovers. With the upcoming launch of the world premiere online virtualization of the home library and author marketing support system contained in, NCP needs all the help they can get and I am proud to be joining the team.”
