About the author:
J.R. Broadwater (Randy to his friends and family) is a licensed pastor who's had a vast number of rather interesting life experiences that's helped to define him not only as an individual, but as a writer. Experiences such as: being a volunteer chaplain for a prison; an on-site manager for a transitional living facility that helped homeless families find work and a safe place to live; working for an international non-profit organization; and being the only middle-classed white guy working at an African American church in the inner city of Chattanooga, TN. His passion for writing and telling great stories is matched only by his love for all things nerdy. Movies, books, comics, and video games; Randy devours it all like a thick man at a cake buffet. For updates on Randy's other writing projects, including the fantasy novel The Chosen Chronicles: Rebirthing that he wrote with Mark Ruelius, or the sci-fi noir novel You Only Die Twice, be sure to check out his official website at

Down With The Thickness: Viewing The World From A Fat Guy's Perspective

Authored by J. R. Broadwater
Illustrated by Shawn Skvarna
Edited by Cathy Holder

Regardless of body type, there are experiences that we all, as human beings, share and sometimes the key to overcoming the more difficult of those experiences is to look at things from a fresh point of view, with humor, or even to realize that there are other people out there that have been there and survived. I've dealt with depression, suicide, and being a morbidly obese guy living in a world about two or three sizes smaller than me. The following book is my perspective and opinions on things like life, relationships, and religion. I don't profess to have all the answers, I just hope that someone somewhere out there might read this and be touched in some way.
