Biography

Jade Valor is a native New Yorker. Having studied acting, music and opera in her hometown, she moved to Germany where she performed and worked behind the scenes in opera, theater and television. She has been teaching voice and singing for over twenty years. Her novels, "Salomé - The Prophecy" and "Salomé - Revelation", were inspired by her love of myth and fantasy and her passion of many years for the Oscar Wilde drama and Richard Strauss opera of the same name. This collaboration with Sharlie Pryce, who she met and began writing with in 2001, is part of Project Salomé that includes a screenplay version they hope will one day become a film. A great fan of "The Lord of the Rings" - both J.R.R. Tolkien and Peter Jackson - Jade made the long journey to the Middle of Middle Earth (Wellington, New Zealand) with the first draft of the "Salomé" screenplay, to be there for the world premiere of "The Return of the King". Two of the people from the production who she met there have kept in touch over the years and been incredibly kind and encouraging with regard to the "Salomé" project. Living in Wellington since 2008, she is involved in theater and film, sings and coaches voice, American accent and presentation with actors, vocalists and business people. Sharlie Pryce was born in London, England of Jamaican parents. She has always loved to weave fantasy tales, sketching bi-weekly comic stories for her closest school friends. She studied dance, singing and acting, which took her from Gothenburg, Sweden to Hamburg, Germany where she started her professional career. Sharlie has performed in theaters and television, done voice-over work and coached presentation skills. Meeting Jade Valor was the turning point in her career that kick-started her passion to write. Jade's desire to redeem the figure of Salomé of her femme fatale image was the beginning of their decade-long collaboration on Project Salomé. Sharlie lives in Hamburg, Germany where she coaches corporates in presentation skills and business English, and continues to perform.
