Pat Ballard writes romance novels and short stories with Big Beautiful Heroines to show that plus-size women are just as sexy, romantic, and exciting as their slim sisters.
"After I decided to stop the self-destructive fad diets that I had lived on since the age of eleven, and accept myself as who I was born to be, I set about to write romance novels with Big Beautiful Heroines," Ballard says. "But the books aren't just for plus-size women. The message is for all women to love ourselves as we are and stop trying to be something we were never meant to be."
Ballard is also the author of 10 Steps to Loving Your Body (No Matter What Size You Are), which has been called "your body's best friend in pocket form" and has been named one of the Top 100 Best Self-Help Books of All Time by Self-help.fm.
She lives and writes in Nashville, TN.

A dangerous game to be sure, but humiliating Blake is worth the risk.
But when Seven realizes she’s the one who’s being seduced, she’s no longer sure who is playing whom...or whether she’ll have a career when the bet is over.
