When not writing screenplays, Lex is writing genre fiction, working toward her long-term goals in filmmaking, or writing literary fiction and poetry as Winter Bel. Yes. That seems a whole lot for just one person.

Outside of work, Lex is a passionate runner and cyclist, who is also sweatily into tech, travel, electronic dance music, and U.S. politics and law. Born in 1980, she's a graduate of Oxford University (a proud #Magdalenite) and London Film School, where she became, among other things, a lifelong admirer of Raymond Chandler and Walter Hill.
