She received her BA in Comparative Literature from San Diego State University in 1973 and has worked as a scriptwriter in Hollywood. She is now living in San Diego with her husband and children. Her current commission involves a play and a one-act about an amazing woman who survived WWII Poland, fought in the Warsaw Ghetto and escaped a Nazi death camp. This work will be available by early 2006. Janet S. Tiger's latest commission was to put onto paper - and stage - the life story of Renny Grynblatt, a survivor of World War II Poland. This amazing lady fought in the Warsaw ghetto Uprising and made a daring escape from a Nazi death camp. The unique side of this will be that Renny's story will be ready in book form by early December, 2005 - and a one-woman one-act of her life will be broadcast on the Internet, hopefully ready by April, 2006.”—One-Act Plays by Janet S.
