This has been a long journey in the making, adding layer on top of layer - each an experience, good and bad, until "Jules the writer" came to life and finally sat down to write professionally. I walked out of art school as a costume and set designer, but I'm quite versed in illustrations. I then went to journalism school, but decided that it wasn't really for me.
However, I really wanted to write, so I got accepted to a great theatre & film university, where I studied screenwriting and copy-writing. Afterwards, I landed my first big gig as a Junior Copywriter for Young & Rubicam, tackling some of the big brands (i.e. Danone, Jaguar, Land Rover, Save the Children Foundation, Hyundai, Xerox, Colgate-Palmolive and more).
Then I got lost in a terrible economy and resurfaced in another country, years later. Today, I'm proud to be an integral part of a boutique digital marketing agency based in London, as a copywriter and content writer. But, most importantly, I am now writing feverishly: short stories of the fiction genre (mostly fantasy and Sci-Fi), the occasional article and, most importantly, my first novel.
I currently have two major novel projects unfolding, actually, but only one made the cut as the honourable "first". The other one sits quietly with a detailed mind-map, complete structure and half-written chapter for now, waiting for its turn. I post plenty of excerpts from my ongoing novel work here, so do enjoy all the Lilith-related posts, and don't be shy to leave some feedback, like the hell out of and share these little gems like there's no tomorrow. Nothing makes me write better than some constructive critique and well-earned fandom.
I spend what's left of my spare time on the artsy side of life. And when that's done for the day, I slip in a couple of pages of Ray Bradbury, Neil Gaiman, Arthur C. Clarke, Phillip K. Dick, Kurt Vonnegut and other masters of the Sci-Fi genre. And occasionally I dabble with the fine craft of absolute procrastination by binging on films and TV series, but I'm currently working to fix that.
Enjoy every second you spend here and, don't forget: We're all entitled to our own opinions, but not our own facts.
