Carrie Rubin at Conversation Corner (online interview)
“Bullied and pummeled just because of the heavy burden his waistline carries, Jeremy and a tough public health nurse take on the giants of junk food, drawing Darwin to them as surely as a wasp. And so the murdering begins. A fast-paced thriller with a climax that nails it.”Frederick Anderson
“Rubin is a masterful storyteller who weaves her medical knowledge into a gripping thriller, diving head-first into a meaty subject that has been ignored for far too long. Eating Bull paints a disturbing portrait of a society in denial and delivers characters that get under your skin and stay there.”Dianne Gray
“A solid thriller that manages to infuse one boy’s coming-of-age with a whole lot of murder.”Kirkus Reviews
“Carrie Rubin tackles obesity, fat-shaming, and bullying in this unique and original psychological thriller certain to keep you thinking long after you’ve finished reading.”Maddie Cochere
“The one-of-a-kind plot is accompanied by beautiful character depth and background writing…Carrie Rubin is a talented writer and I can’t wait to read what she thinks of next.”Samantha Coville
