A comedy writer & creative director from London, Lorelei writes sketches, novels, & articles about falling in love… and out again. She is founder of new cause-powered comedy collective, MelonComedy. and its sister brand @ LemonComedy, and she writes about the hilarity of Adult ADHD.

Break-Up Club packshot.pngHer latest 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.
