As you read this book, you will discover the confidence that you never thought you could have. Join the Confident Fat Girls Movement with Patrice.

If you write in more than one genre, how do you balance them?

I wrote 2 nonfiction self help motivational books. I just completed 2 fiction books that I was nervous about but I think those books still were interesting.
