Meet the author, discuss the book
FATLASH! is a memoir and a cautionary tale about the backlash that can result from regulating others people’s diets (especially children). It’s also about Karen’s real-life experiences in child beauty pageants and the way in which some parents live vicariously through their children. Woven through her story are Karen’s unique perspectives and insights as a mental health professional and consultant. Karen’s book encourages a compelling discussion about authenticiy, finding your own path in life and the value of boundaries: Those between parent and child, between person and society and between public pressure and personal responsibility. Karen invites us to look closer at what inspires each of us to strive for mastery in our lives, to persist in the face of adversity, and to use what we learn to create a better future. A broad range of audiences will find Karen’s humor and insights relevant to a variety of modern challenges.
