Creator Month: Fat-Positive Author Pat Ballard

“My fiction features “Big Beautiful Heroines” who always feel good about themselves. Even if they go into the book not feeling self-confident, they feel that way by the end of the book. I will NEVER put one of my heroines on a weight-loss diet.” » Pat Ballard

Today’s interview is with fat-positive author Pat Ballard.

Here’s how she describes herself:

I write romance novels featuring ‘Big Beautiful Heroines.’ But my books aren’t just for larger women, they’re for women of all sizes to learn to love the body you have and stop trying to look like someone you’re not. I also have a non-fiction book titled: ’10 Steps To Loving Your Body (No Matter What Size You Are)’

And my message to all is: ‘Remember that you are a one of a kind work of art. There never has been, nor will there ever be another you. So love the you that you are.
