About Yvonne

Proud of her Polish heritage and fascinated by the influence of Polish artists on early cinema, Yvonne has a passionate interest in Pola Negri, the first foreign film star to be contracted to a Hollywood studio, namely Paramount in 1922.

POLA is a feature spec script co-written with Lea Sellers, a British writer based in London.

In June 2021, the project was ranked #16 on Coverfly's THE RED LIST in the category of Historical Feature. It has also garnered nine finalist awards.

Yvonne is currently working on a number of screenwriting projects for film and streaming.
