Big Women Live Happily Ever After in At Long Last, Love, A Collection of Romantic Short Stories by Canadian Author Judy Bagshaw

Canadian author Judy Bagshaw has a mission to write tales in which large women live rich, fulfilling lives.

Nashville, TN, April 10, 2007 --( Judy Bagshaw has a mission and a vision: writing romantic stories and novels in which plus-sized women live rich, involved lives. It’s a dream that grew out of her struggles living as a large woman in a world in which fat is reviled.

It wasn’t until her late twenties that Bagshaw realized she had wasted a good portion of her time obsessing about her weight and her looks. The subsequent journey of self-acceptance led to her writing career.

Her most recent work, At Long Last, Love, a collection of short stories featuring plus-sized (and in some cases middle-aged) heroines, was published by Pearlsong Press in April 2007.

Writing had always been a part of the Canadian school teacher’s life, but it became a serious pursuit when she reached her mid-thirties. Bagshaw started taking writing classes and one summer stumbled upon an ad for a publisher seeking plus-sized romances.

“I can remember a writing instructor telling me emphatically that there was no real market for romances featuring plus-sized heroines,” she says. “I thought then that I would really enjoy proving him wrong!”

Her first work was published in 1999. In 2005 Bagshaw retired after a 28-year career as an elementary school teacher to devote herself to writing fulltime at her home in southern Ontario.

“I have so many stories I want to tell. And since finding publishers who want work that is outside the mainstream box, I know that there are people out there that want to read stories where the big girl wins the hero’s heart and lives happily ever after.”

At Long Last, Love: A Collection is available from online and offline booksellers, directly from the publisher at, and wholesale from Ingram Book Co. and others.
