A Budding Novelist

From Rizél’s background in journalism, storytelling and writing, it’s no surprise that she turned to writing novels in between her corporate duties. She already authored Hinane (a historical action adventure set in the 4th century AD in northwest Africa based on the legend of Tin Hinan).

Rizél often organises and hosts fiction writing retreats where participant writers visit exotic locations across the globe to let creativity flow freely.


Future Aspirations

Rizél works toward choreographing her own VR live show production Fire of the Orisha and starting a small fictitious (VR) city: Deus Loci – a heaven on earth where people can regenerate to take on life’s challenges.
