The Accidental Author. Embarking on a weight loss program to avoid being 50 and fat lead Patricia to the status of Best Selling author.

Background Information

Patricia became an author by accident. Approaching her 50th birthday feeling a little overweight she decided she didn't want to be 50 and fat. So she embarked on a life changing weight loss program under the medical supervision of Dr. Walter Platt. Much to her initial dismay the eating plan was low carb. However, within two weeks she had experienced such a significant shange in her energy level that she decided she wanted to live this way permanently. Oh yes, and she had lost 12 pounds! The weight kept streaming off until she had eventually lost 43 pounds and had reached her ideal weight. But the food was boring. Having been an excellent cook all her life she decided to invest in some low carb cookbooks to make the meals more interesting. The low carb cookbooks available at the time were also dull and boring. So she developed 150 tasty and nutritious low carb recipes and wrote her own cookbook: Easy Low Carb Cooking. Expecting to sell these books only to family and friends she included her personal email address in the introduction to the cookbook. Soon she was receiving emails from all over North America with requests from readers for more information and assistance. It wasn't long until it became evident that another book was required. Co-authored with her physician husband, Dr. Harv Haakonson, the second book, Easy Low Carb Living, became equally as popular as the cookbook. Both books are now Best Sellers and continue to provide readers with guidance and tools to live a low carb lifestyle easily while receiving the benefits of weight loss, weight management and good health.

Birth Place
Glace Bay,  Canada
Additional Information

Patricia and her husband Harv spent 10 months in late 2002 and early 2003 touring North America in a 34 foot motorhome promoting their books. The result: two Best Selling books and a truck load of new friends.
