How I Got My Paintings to Paris Despite Stupid Bureaucrats

Description: "No, no, no, Madame!" Janet refuses to take no for an answer when Swiss bureaucrats refuse her passage, threatening to thwart her childhood dream of exhibiting in Paris. In telling this tale based on a true story, the audience eggs her on at dangerous junctures, and winds up inspired that they too - with persistence, daring and a touch of folly - can overcome exasperating obstacles.

"Your story made me laugh and moved me to tears."

Sherry Bykofsky
Literary agent, NYC
