Astrid Arditi has studied at Hogwarts, ridden a dragon, swam with mermaids and flown to the moon. Recently, she traveled to Mount Olympus…
She leads a double life: one of words and whimsy; the other one chasing her two young kids around the playground and kissing away booboos.
She’s a spy, a princess, a unicorn, a wife, a mother and an author. Life is never dull in her messy home in Brooklyn, or in her dreams where she escapes as often as she can.
She writes from experience, of course. You may not believe it, but everything in her books has actually happened to her…even if only in her imagination.

“My body’s been broken, my heart trampled by divine whims, my hopes shattered like a glass vase hit by lightning. And despite all the obstacles the gods threw my way, I collected the debris and fused them back together, turning fragile glass into impenetrable diamond.”
Astrid Arditi, Olympian Heritage: A Young Adult Urban Fantasy

“If I ever needed to pick a place to hide, I would seek refuge inside a book. There's something about the musty smell emanating from the yellowed pages and the perfect alignment of printed words that appeases me. It is orderly, in massive contrast with my out-of-control life.”
Astrid Arditi, Olympian Challenger

“Memories are what make people who they are. You sent back empty shells to Earth.”
