Rendezvous with the Fat Man, Taylor Swift’s Lessons, Nature’s Natives

In 1972, Jan Sherman was a beautiful 22 year old actress/stunt woman who fled the Hollywood ‘rat race’ by moving to the island of Ibiza off the coast of Spain. Her life changed forever after attending an eclectic party of expatriate artists and hippies when the hostess invited her to South America to buy and smuggle a kilo of cocaine. Talent agent and sister of Jan, Gail Sherman Jones unveils her new book, Rendezvous with the Fat Man, about the true saga of her sister’s double life.

Music megastar, Taylor Swift, turns thirty this year and shares thoughts on lessons she’s learned. She says 2019 is the year for sharing and caring.

More than 18,000 plant species are native to the United States and approximately 6000 species are endemic to California. Natives are drought tolerant and wildlife attractors bringing songbirds, lizards, salamanders, butterflies, frogs, hummingbirds, bees, and other pollinators into the landscape. Goddess Gardener, Cynthia Brian guides us through a native garden.

Bio:Gail Sherman Jones is Owner-Director of Talent+Plus/Los Latinos Talent Agency, the oldest talent agency in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1981. She represents actors/models for TV commercials, videos, print work, movies, & TV series. Previously, she taught Spanish & social studies for 12 years at a middle school in the Latino barrio of East San Jose, CA. RENDEZVOUS WITH THE FAT MAN is her first book initiated by the death of her sister Jan in 2013. Gail discovered Jan’s unpublished manuscript in her estate exposing her secret double life as a cocaine smuggler from 1972-1980. Jan made 11 trips to South America, scoring 7 kilos of coke, netting over $500,000 ($2 million today). Gail’s screenplay of the book is being considered for a film by a major production company in LA.
