Raised on a diet of Spielberg, Lucas and Disney, Astrid knew she wanted to be surrounded by all things fantastical from a young age. She’s spent the last 10 years working in film, animation and television as both an artist and manager. Career highlights include working on James Cameron's AVATAR, Steven Spielberg's THE ADVENTURES OF TIN TIN and HAPPY FEET 2 by George Miller. She’s a visual writer and aims to capture the vivid stories that play like movies in her head. When she’s not writing, she’s painting her favorite fictional characters and obliging her furry overlords, Lilo and Mickey.

FOUR DEAD QUEENS (Putnam, Spring 2019) is her debut novel.

Thanks so much for the question Lillian!

I began with having each quadrant represent a different defining era. Eg. 18th century England, roaring 20s in New York, the future etc and developed it from there. I wanted to have each quadrant provide something to the nation as a whole, so I split what their focus would be on based on their core values. These core values affected the kinds of personalities you'd see in each quadrant. For example, the MC is from Toria who are explorers. Therefore, she's very curious, cunning and often brash. (less)

I know I'm biased, but my agent is the best! I signed with Hillary back in November 2016 after Pitch Wars. You can read more about that journey here. Working with Hillary has been an absolute joy. She has my back through everything, is super approachable and extremely knowledgable about the industry. In early 2017, she found my debut book, FOUR DEAD QUEENS, the best home at Penguin Teen (out Sp... Read more of this blog post »
