she leaves Paris, becomes a mother, writes and publishes her first
novel AGATHA and decides to finally listen to the piece of
advice she received from professionals in Paris and New York City
years ago: to translate her work and try to sell it across the Atlantic...

too because hers choosed muscles instead of musicals.
as Mr Walt Disney said : All our dreams can come true, if
we have the courage to pursue them...
