James Hester spent years working as a record company executive before a health crisis led him to Roni DeLuz’s retreat. She helped him to lose more than forty pounds and turned his life around. He became so committed to her work that they became business partners in 2003. Their partnership resulted in the New York Times bestseller 21 Pounds in 21 Days. He lives in New York and Martha’s Vineyard.
