"Made me want to break up with someone, just so I could join the club immediately."
Part comedy, part self-help, but wholly fabulous." B & H Independent
Lorelei Mathias' new novel, 'Break Up Club' is a romantic comedy about friendship, and was inspired by her experiences in a pathetic yet funny break-up club of her own... which taught her that a break up shared, is a break up halved. One day she'd like to set up an official refuge for the broken-hearted, so that no one should ever have to go through one alone.
NEWS JUST IN: you can now join the Break-Up Club in real life... at Facebook.com/BUCLondon and @BUCLondon on twitter & Instagram - for fun content and the chance to connect with other members from around the world.
About the author: Lorelei was born in 'Metroland' to English and Romanian parents. She studied English & Philosophy at Birmingham University, before working in London as a Copywriter in Publishing and Advertising. She also enjoys journalism and has blogged for both Campaign Magazine and Caitlin Moran's website.
Her first novel 'Step on it, Cupid', was published when she was 25, followed by 'Lost for Words'. As a member of the writers collective '26', she has had a poem exhibited at the Museum of Childhood, and a non-fiction chapter published in 'Common Ground: Around Britain in 30 Writers.' She enjoys coming up with ways to help authors market their own books; which is how she came to write and produce the two films for her books. The one on this page stars the fabulous actress Sarah Smart. The other one can be seen at Lostforwordsnovel.com. Credited as one of the first people to make a 'book trailer' she has also contributed to a number of books and articles about online marketing for authors.
When she's not writing, she enjoys making comedy sketches and short films, running a fictional bakery called Niche Quiche, and asking people where the nearest lido is. She is also named after a mythical German mermaid, which might explain the obsession with outdoor swimming.
