Attached is an article about Delphine Pontvieux, who will also be in attendance at the event, written by Donald G. Evans, founder and executive director of the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame.


Does she juggle too?

“You might know Delphine Pontvieux as the author of the thriller ETA and the publisher of Miss Nyet Publishing. Or you might know her as a tri-athlete, scuba instructor, waterboarder or rock climber. Maybe you’re aware of her work as an actress in LOL, where she played Joan of Arc’s mother. You could have bumped into her in her travels as an international saleswoman and promoter in the music and entertainment industries. Perhaps you just know her as the really tall and attractive French woman.
Now, in a kick to the face to all of us trying to get one thing right, she designs jewelry.” Read the rest of the article here.


It is official, the new Miss Nyet Jewelry fall/winter collection is out!
