Indie Authors Gathered Around Pickering

By Angie Littlefield
Just in time for Covid-10−that’s the condition that made you put on 10 pounds during the pandemic−Sher Letooze has published Belly-Fat Buster Cookbook. Sher developed interesting meals around spartan “Reducing Diet #4”, when her husband’s doctor told him to lose 10 pound. “We never went hungry, and some days we ate like kings. My husband not only lost his 10 pounds, he lost 32!! I lost 13 pounds and my son lost somewhere just over 15 pounds – all in three months! My son and I cheat – he likes chips and pop and pizza and I just couldn’t give up my chocolate! But we’ve all lost weight and feel a lot better for it. I hope you have as much luck with it as we did!” Price $10 @

Sher was one of the popular vendors at A Gift of Art's Newcastle’s 13th Annual Art Show – Reinvented! this summer.
