For years, Tish Jett was a fashion editor for The New York Daily News Tonight edition, the style and fashion editor of the Detroit Free Press, and before that, Midwest Bureau Chief for Women's Wear Daily and W . When the opportunity to become Style Editor of the International Herald Tribune in Paris was presented to her, she quit her job in New York, packed up her daughter and dogs, and decided to see what fate had in store. While working for the Herald Tribune, she was approached by the Chicago Tribune to be a correspondent from Paris and later - still working for both "Tribunes" - she became the last editor of American Elle before its popularity proved the magazine could happily live in New York City. Instead of moving back to New York with Elle, she decided love was more important than the plans she had originally had for her career. So she married her Frenchman and continued her writing through freelance assignments and her blog: Frenchwomen of a certain age and their secrets.
