Astrid has written a handful of novels and has even ceremonially burnt one. She has learnt that writing psychological thrillers shouldn’t be done late at night; that everybody loves a happy ending (even if they don’t admit it) and that it never gets easier to stop procrastinating.
Along with her failures (like that burnt manuscript) have been successes. She was awarded a scholarship for prose writing through Lancaster University in 2004. She was shortlisted in a national short story competition. Her novel WHITE KNIGHTS was a commercial success and garnered fabulous reader reviews.
Astrid believes in living dreams and never compromising on the important stuff. She always has millions of balls in the air and she likes it that way. When she’s not bashing her keyboard, Astrid can be found bouncing about with her kids, twisting herself into yoga knots and hatching plans to change the world.
At the moment, she’s writing a fabulous slice-of-life novel that has her chuckling. Other in-progress projects include a middle grade novel; a medical biography and she’s currently pondering a picture book…she just needs someone to help her who can draw!
