A Guardian & BBC-featured author & comedy writer from London & Brighton, Lorelei Mathias writes sketches, novels & articles about falling in love… and out again. As a screenwriter she sits in various writers rooms from DMs Are Open (BBC Radio 4), Pulped.com to Square Pegs (Radio 4/BBC Indie Development Fund). She’s founder & Showrunner of cause-powered comedy collective MelonComedy, and she’s currently writing a new book about the hilarity of Adult ADHD to accompany her Edinburgh TV Fest nominated web series LIFE IN ADHD.  Her last novel ‘Break Up Club’ is published by Avon/Harper Collins. It’s a romantic comedy about break-ups, starring four Londoners at the fag-end of their single years. It celebrates what becomes of the consciously-uncoupled, when they all consciously-uncouple at the same time, form a pathetic club (BUC), and fall head over heels for each other. Her recent screenplay adaptation has been nominated for BBC Writers Room and Sid Gentle’s Thousand Films competitions.
