Ronika is an award-winning screenwriter. She also directs, and runs the Wicklow Stories Film Festival.

Having placed highly in both the Academy Nicholl Fellowship as well as the Austin Film Festival in 2019, she has since expanded her slate to contain more than 22 feature-length scripts, 4 of which are currently in preproduction or development with various production companies.

In addition to this, she is the artistic director of the Wicklow Stories Film Festival, which was launched in 2022 and was funded and supported by Creative Ireland.

Her autobiography “The Unfinished Heart” is slated for publication in the coming years, and her textbook for Irish Screenwriters “The Hustle” is now available on Amazon or can be purchased directly from her.

Her new collection of prose, poetry, and letters, “I Love You, Dave Taylor” is available on Amazon as an e-book or paperback.

She has consulted on projects in the US, UK, South Africa and Australia.

Her directorial feature debut “The Closing” will release in 2023, and is currently in preproduction.
