Award-winning Author/Comedy Writer/Neurodivergent of East London… named after a much more famous mythical German mermaid, The Loreley. The Lorelei on the other hand was born in poor man’s Amersham (Chesham) to English and Romanian parents. She studied English & Philosophy at Birmingham University, then worked in London as a Copywriter . Her first novel Step on it, Cupid, was published at 25, followed by Lost for Words. She is currently writing the TV pilot for her latest novel, as well as a comedy sketch show for her collective MelonComedy. She has had a poem exhibited at the V&A/Museum of Childhood.
