A Guardian & BBC-featured author & comedy writer from London & Brighton, Lorelei Mathias writes sketches, novels & articles about falling in love… and out again. She is in various screenwriting writers rooms from The Treason Show to BBC’s Breaking the News.
She’s founder of cause-powered comedy collective MelonComedy, and she’s currently writing a new book about the hilarity of Adult ADHD.
Here’s a trailer for the companion TV show:
Her 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. Her recent screenplay adaptation has been nominated for BBC Writers Room and Sid Gentle’s Thousand Films competitions.
You can read all about it here...read her latest blogs & articles, or stroll the aisles of her online shop.
Hear her on the BBC talking about her two specialist subjects, neurodiversity & mermaids…
…And her new sketch show Batshit by Melon Comedy (Edinburgh TV Festival nominated) licensed to various online channels but still looking for its broadcast home.
