Thayne Hudson lives with her husband, their Newfoundlands and pet skunks in a northernmost Northwoods territory. In fact, sometimes they believe they just might be lost. She loves gardening, rowing, dancing, and is an avid LOST and Northern Exposure fan.
In novels about big beautiful people, Thayne Hudson frames their life journey, passion, and personal growth without making the story about food or size issues. In fact, each character’s search for personal mastery does not require ‘attaining thin’ to be accomplished.
This is an author-of-size, skilled and alight with entertainment, humor, sensuality, wisdom, and vision. And through an allusion of light supernatural insights, her stories reveal the sacred wounds of characters to know the destiny of their life.
She says, “I hope my work brings well-deserved inspiration and support to people of size who are living in a world that seems to want to censor everything about them."
Writing within the size acceptance community and for ESSA Books gives Ms. Hudson a platform from which to shout words like ‘elegance’ and ‘rounded-symmetry’ and ‘grace’ and to use them in reference to the beauty of people of size. Uncensored.
The message of Thayne Hudson and from ESSA Books does not diminish people of size. And so there is hope.
"My publisher at ESSA Books and I have the same sentiment. If we die now we will be really ticked off. Just having too much fun."
