Shavonya I am happy you started this list. I am always so shocked to look in the back of a book and see a full-figured author when I just read about a heroine who is a size 2, the body of a "dancer", lithe, small boned, whatever. To me it says even though these writers, like most women are a size 12 or above, don't feel like a lead female can be sexy, loved, desired, romanced, and fat. Romance novels and movies (and clothing stores) usually aren't FGF(fat girl friendly). I don't feel that authors should make all lead more Rubenesque or morbidly obese, but most authors have to admit there leads are unrealistic and not diverse. I just read a book where the heroine had "full breast", and "wide hips" and was 5 feet tall. She wore size one and was 100 pounds. Something doesn't add up. I point that out because when the attempt is made toward a more feminine shape it comes out silly and unrealistic. There are also the times were the author has a Full figured heroine who laments her weight the entire book, and couldn't take a compliment if it was super-glued to her for-head. That is probably the worse offense. *off the soap box*

Chérie Sues Hi Shavonya,

I agree with you 100%, that's why I wrote Dangerous Curves to test the waters. Apparently, women across the world agree, Dangerous Curves has done very well. My publisher just asked me to do another Rubenesque, full-figured romance, and I'm happy to say I will. I've seen magazines, television and books stick with the athletic wonder-woman types...I've done this myself as an author. Stepping away from that typecasting was a wonderful and freeing experience for me. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me, I hope you enjoy Dangerous Curves. Don't be a stranger and you can step up to the soap box anytime!
