Skinny Bitch Co-Authors Embark on New Projects

Kim Barnouin and Rory Freedman are busy pursuing endeavors ranging from women’s fiction to disability activism.

Following the success of their bestselling Skinny Bitch diet-book series, vegan authors Kim Barnouin and Rory Freedman are branching out, spearheading new projects that capitalize on their collective star power. Barnouin is trying her hand at fiction, with two romance novels in the works—Skinny Bitch in Love centers on a vegan chef who falls upon hard times, eventually falling into the arms of a meat-loving man. Meanwhile, Skinny Bitch co-author Rory Freedman recently participated in NextStep’s Wheelchair for a Day Challenge, which aims to raise awareness about the daily tasks associated with paralysis. In a new video, Freedman documents her experience relying on a wheelchair with help from veg artist Gretchen Ryan, who has been paralyzed since she was a teenager.
