We can be joined by eMail:

Stella and I joined efforts to write a novel  (not a memoir) based on our five years working for the Crazy-Rich & Famous.  Bonjour Never Land is a 5-book series (Book 1 Stormy Sophie, Book 2 Money Galore, Book 3 Silver Fox, Book 4 Cap’n Hook, Book 5 Clint.) each book can be read separately as it is a unique chapter in itself based on our background story.

Questions you might want to ask us:

  • Why did you ever get involved in the Hospitality Industry?
  • Why did we write a novel based on a part of our life working for the super-chich folks?
  • What was the most exciting moment of your life working for Crazy Rich and Famous?
  • What is our goal in life?
  • What do Rich people eat, live, and play?
  • Are Rich people conscious of what they should eat to stay fit?
  • Who were the most famous people we ever served?
  • How do we use spices?
  • Did we assist at wedding #8 of the Hollywood queen in Neverland?
  • Was Marlon Brando a steady guess at Neverland?
