About Me

 
I’m Astrid Dalmady, I commit many different dastardly deeds, but mostly I write short fiction, both static and interactive.

You can find all my work at my portfolio, as well as most of my interactive fiction projects on the Interactive Fiction Database.

If you would like to contact me, please send an email to info[at]astriddalmady[dot]com or reach out to me on social media at Twitter or Tumblr.
