About the Authors:
I LOVED in the book how Caleb describes the writing of this book:
"I wrote the first draft of this novel a couple of years before I had a publisher. When it came time to offer this novel to my editor, I asked my writing students to comment on the first chapter before I turned in the manuscript. I had a relatively new student at the time, Betsy Schow, who had just finished workshopping a book in my class called Finished Being Fat that had been picked up, coincidentally, by my own publisher, Cedar Fort, Inc. Betsy had a lot of really great suggestions for my chapter, particularly for the voice of the main character, Hallie Stone. I found myself writing down Betsy's suggestions as fast as I could, wishing I had thought of them first. The next day, I did what every good teacher does when he is bested by a student--I asked Betsy to coauthor with me."
Caleb Warnock is the bestselling author of more than a dozen books, ranging from gardening, to baking, to writing.
After many years of unhappiness and being unpleasantly plump, Betsy Schow found her way to weight loss success and a better life through the Philosophy of Finishing. She shares it all in her first book, Finished being Fat – available January 2013 from Cedar Fort Inc. Her adventure inspired her certify in yoga and fitness so she could help others achieve their goals. You can find her running around the mountains of Utah, chained to her laptop, or wrangling two small children.
