WHAT’S A LORELEI

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. Credited as having one of the ‘best youtube trailers for a book, ever’, she’s contributed to books and articles about online marketing for authors. 

Her latest novel & TV pilot, Break Up Club was inspired by her experiences in an accidental break-up club of her own… which taught her that a break up shared, is a break up halved. The screenplay for that has won various award nominations.

She’s currently writing a book and show about the hilarity and horror of living with Adult ADHD – a much misunderstood brain condition – which in daily life is as close as you can get to clowning without a Gaulier diploma. Watch a teaser for the new show LIFE IN ADHD here:

Here’s her award-winning sketch that started it all ‘Russian Doll’ – about a comedy character living with ADHD (impaired executive functioning).

And her comedy pilot, BATSHIT, which won ‘Best Un-commissioned Pilot’ at Edinburgh TV Festival, co-created with a team of talented comedians…

She’s also working on a documentary about outdoor swimming, off the back of an event she conceived Splashmob Peckham. And she co-wrote this short drama film which has made grown men cry.
