Hi, I am Lucile!

French by birth.
Scottish by heart.
Dutch by choice.

How it began

Writer, born and bred.

Writing, in all its wonderful forms, has been a constant and omnipresent part of my life, for as long as I can remember. My favourite means of expression, it simply makes my soul sing. As sentences keep forming and new stories keep flowing in this busy head of mine, I consider myself to be a lucky natural. Nevertheless, it still took years of hard work to perfect the skill I have with words. To me, good writing is as much science, as it is art. 

I am a writer of anything from fiction to poetry, which means that imagination and emotion are already abundant ingredients in my inkwell. With Alunea, I want to use my marketing education and professional background to give my writing a business kick, too. Polyvalent, meticulous and inspired, I will manipulate language to turn the most basic words into gold for your business.

Three peas in a pod

Much like a Matryoshka, or an onion, I come in several layers. Each aspect of me transpires in my work, and possesses specific skills that are all essential to great content writing.

I know what you're thinking. You're totally jealous of my adorable Egyptian scribe costume. I don't blame you. It looks so good, I wear it at weddings and everything. If we became work pals, maybe I could lend it to you! You know what to do: click, click, click!
