My writing career began early on. As a child writer, I won a dozen of French literary contests and published my first short story in an anthology published by “Editions Grimal” when I was 18. I’ve published my first novel in December 2013 and I have signed my first book deal with the publishing house Editions Dagan. My first novel “Ma petite Soeur” has recently been published by them. I went to the Salon du livre pour enfants de Montreuil to sign my book.
I never felt any limitations when it comes to writing. I’m interested in a large range of media, and I have been working as a journalist both in France and in the UK since I was a teen. My work mostly focus on gender, race and politics and my features have been published in national and international magazines and webzines such as The Voice, Complex Magazine, Londonist, Media Diversified, The Guardian, Amina, Afriscope and more.
Then, I decided to focus on writing for the screen and the stage. I moved to screenwriting, and created a 7-episodes webseries called “Jeunes et Cons” with the production company Adela Film. I moved to Scotland to do an MA in Screenwriting at Screen Academy Scotland and I’ve been living there since. Through my course, I collaborated with a large range of upcoming filmmakers. I wrote 4 shorts, all produced by Screen Academy Scotland. I’ve also written and script edited two shorts for the group Action on the side, produced by the production company Busy Kiwi.
As a playwright, I have been invited by the Royal Theatre Stratford East to develop and co-direct my play, Recipes. I am also currently developing a radio drama for the online radio Astute Channel. As part of the theatre company Talawa, I wrote and devised the play Soapbox, performed at the Embassy Theatre in August 2015. I am also part of the Soho Theatre Writers Group.
