Lindsey Hall and Leigh Cohn, who are married, are internationally-respected authors of several books on eating disorders and recovery topics. Their original edition of Bulimia: A Guide to Recovery was the first book ever published on bulimia, and Lindsey was the first "recovered bulimic" to appear on national television.

They have been honored by most national eating disorders organizations with an Award for Service from the Eating Disorders Coalition, honorary certification from the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals, and the Lori Irving Award for Excellence in Eating Disorders Prevention Awareness by the National Eating Disorders Association.

Leigh has also served as Editor-in-Chief of Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment and Prevention, since 1992 and has been a featured speaker at many universities and eating disorders conferences.

Additionally, they own Gurze Books, the world's leading publisher of eating disorders resources, which publishes numerous trade books as well as the Eating Disorders Resource Catalogue, and maintain several websites including Bulimia.com, EatingDisordersBlogs.com, and EatingDisordersReview.com. They also have a partnership with the National Eating Disorders Association to operate NEDA's online store.
