Why “Catalyst” Is Personal To Me

       When I wrote and began promoting my first book, “Catalyst”, the story of a man who has the power to pull the fat out of your body, I met a great many people who loved that concept. I wrote about things that had happened to me, but I didn’t know that I was actually writing the story of millions of people in this country. I could see a flicker of eager anticipation in their eyes at hearing about a “super-hero” who can drain 150 pounds off of you in a couple of minutes…a few women actually reached out to touch me, just in case I was Mark Layton, the character in the book! 


       The desire to be instantly thin resonates with people in this country…it is probably the third-most popular wish behind being rich and being young! That’s fine, as long as we do not lose sight of a couple of very important things: 1) It is NEVER ok to humiliate someone based on their appearance, and 2) it is never ok to believe that your size determines your worth! As Mark would say, “Whatever your size, whatever your look, before you do anything else, you must learn to love yourself! You have value and you are beautiful!”
