She doesn’t really wear this much makeup.

Astrid is an enigma. At least that’s what she tells herself.

A resident of New Orleans, she is owned by her dog, Beatrix, and is the owner of a degree in Russian history, a piece of paper that she’s never found any use for (but if you ever want to chat about Dostoyevsky or the 1918 Revolution, send her a message).

It is her love of history that nudged her toward the historical fiction genre. She is currently working on her first book. Being an author is something Astrid has wanted to be since she was a child, but life had other plans. She put her dream to the side, but it has come roaring back with a vengeance too strong for her to ignore any longer. (She would like to thank the entire year of 2020 and January 2021, the biggest inspirations to “just write” that she could have ever asked for.) Better late than never, right?
