I’m Astrid a/k/a Artistikem. One day I was trying to come up with a witty Twitter bio and wrote:

‘I write because, if I don’t, my characters will murder me in my sleep’

And I’m sticking to that because it’s true. I’ve been writing since I can remember, it makes me happy and sharing what I write makes me even happier (it also keeps the murderous characters at bay).

Some of the stories featured in this blog have been migrated from my Tumblr blog: artistikem.tumblr.com.

Disclaimer: There are lots of knives and guns in my writing, as well as blood and pinches of romance, so beware!

  1. I love your banner quote! Thankfully, (most of) my characters aren’t so violent. They only drive me to distraction if I ignore them too long.
