Marianne Kirby lives and works and gardens in Orlando, FL, the land of year-round produce. A long-time fat acceptance activist, she blogs about fat bodies at therotund.com and is the coauthor of Lessons From the Fatosphere: Quit Dieting and Declare a Truce with Your Body. Marianne is a regular contributor at xoJane.com, where she writes about being obsessed with nail polish, class war from a personal perspective, and DIY because she just can’t sit still. She still isn’t over her goth phase, so she can be seen wearing all-black in the summertime while writing zombie novels on her laptop.
