Measure By Measure

Rebecca Fox and William Sherman met at a wedding in 1982, fell first in lust and then in love, and ultimately married beneath the June skies at the Temple of the Trees in Central Illinois.

Bill and Becky have embraced size acceptance together. Individually and in tandem, they have authored romantic and fantasy fiction, as well as critical essays and reviews on body esteem, pop culture and critters.

During the 1990s they established a chapter of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance (NAAFA) in Central Illinois, and while this endeavor lasted only three years, they both remain committed to promoting healthy body image. Since then, Becky has spoken on size acceptance to classes of college students as well as younger children.

After too many years of frigid winters, humid sweltering summers and bland soybean vistas, the couple packed up their household of books, unicorns and furry four-footed kids in 2007 and headed southwest to the Gila Valley of Arizona. There, Bill is enjoying his role as a family therapist for a child welfare agency, while Becky creates jewelry, designs graphics, and sells items on eBay for their home-based business, OakHaus Designs.
