A Job Seeker in Hollywood (OhlalaLand.) A Legendary Film Studio. A Tale within a Tale. A Parade of Wacky Characters. A Biofiction. A Job Fantasy.
Tale of a Job Interview at OhlalaLand is a biofiction where the author and the protagonist share the same dream: getting a job in a legendary film studio.
Once upon a time…“Baby born with teeth, starts talking to obstetrician and midwife about her gestation experience!” Indeed, Stephanie was born to create and tell stories like the ones that inspired her entire childhood, the stories from OhlalaLand Studios. Hoping the legendary studios will recognize her skill as a storyteller, Stephanie is one step closer today as she stands in front of the studios’ gate with a job interview summons in her hands. But the experience isn't quite what she expects. Indeed, OhlalaLand's interviewing process is a little…unusual, a little…OhlalaLandian!
Tale of a Job Interview at OhlalaLand is a tale within a tale with a parade of wacky characters where talking animals, walking buttons, ghosts with cellular phones, and epicurean pen-people are as real as the mystical creature interviewing Stephanie. In the nest of wonder and imagination, happily ever after is never really far away…or is it?
Could it be a new literary subgenre: the Job Fantasy?
Have you ever had enough of emailing your résumé without ever receiving any response? If so, Stephanie’s story is YOUR story.
Stephanie, the author, decided to take her pain and frustration and turn them into something more productive than eating dark chocolate cake or hunting down exes on Facebook: writing a tale about herself going for a job interview at the studios of her dreams. “Since no one wants to give me a job interview, I’ll create my own!”

Tale of a Job Interview at OhlalaLand
Stephanie takes us to fantasy back story in France with witty humor and unusual imaginary. A young child that is inspired by the gift of reading which leads her to view the world unconventionally but like for most creative souls society and family tend to misunderstand children that color outside the lines, I think sometimes it's just soul crushing.
As Stephanie ventures into Ohlalaland Studios, the writer manages to weave a story within a story where our hero Stephanie is doing her best to pitch a story about "Jimmy Buttons" to a monstrous gate keeper , with today's socially inept sensibility. A perfect short story that makes you champion for our story's hero
So many times in America we settle on a job we really don't want. Those lies that we are told to never stop dreaming that you can be anything you want, but in reality society creates so many road blocks and often the gate keepers are sitting on mount high.It's people like Stephanie that shows us to keep pushing to find the creative less travel road. I am happy to pre ordered it on itunes and I can wait to read it again on my ipad
