Feminist, Londoner, Third Culture Kid, struggling to become vegetarian, enthusiastic singer, worried about the direction the world is taking right now, budding activist, happiest when baking for the people I love.
I also teach and coach at the Hult International Business School. I have studied political sciences at Sciences Po in Paris and then obtained a Masters degree in International Affairs at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in Boston. I have worked at the United Nations in Geneva and in a Scenario Planning Consultancy.
I live in London with my family, my dog and my cat.
With this series of books, I intend to popularize the concept of scenario planning and highlight the major trends that our society is facing. I want to provoke more thought about the larger issues of our world by proposing it in a novel format, for a wider audience.
I believe that scientists’ non-fiction books are not easily accessible and that our society’s current suspicion of experts may make it more difficult for the public to appreciate the large challenges that humanity should tackle, such as climate change. My hope is that my books will contribute in a small way to increase awareness for the wider public, through fiction .
At first Lily’s story was a simple rom-com, a bit of fun, a light-hearted record of my most outrageous war dating stories.
But then a certain Supreme court nomination had me glued to images of women sharing their stories, confronting politicians in their halls of power, sitting in, refusing to go unheard. And that's when an idea planted itself in my mind: dating and... murders!
Lily Blackwell was born.
A woman who has no skills for deception or murder. A normal Londoner who through circumstances finds herself in the position to right some wrongs. What would she do? Would she grab that chance and step up to the plate?
I hope you'll enjoy sharing her journey and that her story will spark conversations and debate with your friends.
