Astrid is an Afro-Latina (Dominican and Haitian) poet located in the outskirts of Philly. When home you will find her playing mommy to her two boys, stuffing her face with what she grabs to go, taking pictures pretending to be a pro, attempting to catch some Z's between basketball games, art shows with her husband and/or writing—releasing emotion on paper. Astrid is a full-time lover of words and works in the Pharma industry. She is the author of Molt and The Serpent's Rattle.
