She is co-author of the musical, "Jusqu'aux Dents", winner of the Prix SACD 2007 (Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers). Her English adaptations of French musicals include: "Crime of Passion" by Pierre Philippe and Astor Piazzolla, performed in Edinburgh and London by Jerome Pradon, "Panique à Bord" by Stephane Laporte and Patrick Laviosa, for which she has received an award from the Beaumarchais Foundation, "President... or Not" by Hervé Devolder and most recently, "Lemon Twist" by Stéphane Ly-cuong.
She is currently the show writer for Disneyland Paris, taking entertainment projects from brainstorm to concept, through to the development and writing of scripts. The projects can be as small as finding the names for all the ghosts on Main Street for Halloween, to writing an hour-long musical extravaganza for a special event...
