welcome to atticocean.com

atticocean.com is born out of the desire and the necessity to tell a different kind of story. To tell stories with a magic realist perspective. As a digital storyteller I write Attic Ocean Stories. Last but not least I work as a copywriter and a ghostwriter for a variety of German and English clients.


Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, inquiries or if you would like to say hi!

attic ocean stories

Attic Ocean Stories is the blog by Mel Piper

Magical creatures roam our lives. Sleazy and vengeful, kind and small. They turn our world upside down. They bicker and cuddle, demand our attention and take care of us when we're feeling blue. Wondering where to get you next dose of fantastical fiction? Welcome to Attic Ocean Stories. A place where some of my thoughts live. Thoughts on creatures, on social issues and on being blue.

Screenwriting is the heart and soul of everything I do. My screenplays follow unconventional female protagonists on their journey. Courageous introverts who overcome their obstacles and who are never just good or evil.


If you a producer, agent, manager, distributor or investor and you are looking for European genre and drama featuring creatures, romance and musical intervals contact me.
