About the author: Helene was born in France, of Russian and Polish parents, holocaust survivors who migrated to Australia when she was nine years old. Her father died leaving her to survive in this foreign country with her illiterate mother, the backdrop to instil in this ten-year-old, the capacity to become a resilient survivor. At sixteen Helene Grover wrote a number one hit, “Barefoot Boy”, and became one of the pioneers of Australian rock ‘n roll music. She spent over forty years in the entertainment industry, as a song writer, actor, and theatrical agent. In the eighties, she met ‘Enfant Terrible’ of jazz, Serge Ermoll, and during their twenty-six-year relationship, Helene managed his career, produced several of his albums, booked many of his performances including the Sydney support concerts for the Dizzy Gillespie tour. Serge grappled with a lifetime of addictions. The book includes how Helene launched her innovative Laughter Strategies, and twenty years travelling through Australia and South East Asia conducting how to lighten up seminars for conferences and training programs. Harper Collins published her book “Laugh Aerobics”, also translated into Japanese She has appeared on many TV programs such as The Today Show on Channel 9 and the Midday show with Kerri-Anne Kennerley.
