I have been contemplating what to do with Fatropolis, because I am concerned by my original focus on my family and my personal history. No matter how hard I tried, I could not feel comfortable with the prevalent cynicism. I know those were my feelings at the time, but it no longer inspires me to write. Thankfully, I had the thought, or it was inspired by a friend, to take my experiences and create novels based on them.
So, I started to map out two novels, but I still felt like much of what I had written was valid and useful as far as helping readers understand where I am coming from as a writer about this topic. So, I edited my writings down into a six chapter e-book, which gives a tight overview of my struggles with weight and how it changed my life.
As far as the two novels, I can say that one will deal with a daughter experiencing the loss of her father. This event will set off a chain of events that will lead to significant changes in her, all in the hope that in making these changes she will be able to find her father by “piecing” him back together. In the process she will find out just how little she knew her own father.
