"There is always a story that hasn´t been told - at Ieast not like that. Stories of beauty, drama and adventure with a boId and creative twist, or at least heartwarming or thought-provoking", the writer with the heart of a lioness once declared to TIDEtv whilst sipping on her lavender tea. "That´s what keeps us inspired and enchanted.
"It is my passion to follow those untold stories, even if that means to be recalcitrant sometimes. Or following my unsettled heart. Or even being a pain in the arse. Stories don´t have edges or commercial purpose or gender or size. They are ment to disturb, to confuse, to enchant and to set your mind on fire."
DRESS (finished) is a mystery-drama mini-series for tv spanning 5 episodes. It is based on her award-winning novel. The pitch caught the interest of filmmaker
Richard Teodorczyk (Scott Pilgrim, R.E.D., Mama).
Her female led adventure / mystery / drama feature THE GREEN - LAST OF THE CONGO MYSTERIES concerns science vs superstition in the wide and mostIy uncharted territory of the republic of Congo. It got positive feedback from filmmaker Ned Dowd (Last of the Mohicans, 13th Warrior, Apocalypto).
