Interview with YA SH3LF

Hi, friends!

Since this is my first blog post, I’ll start off with a little introduction. My name is Caitlin Lochner, and I’m the author of the YA dystopian novel A Soldier and a Liar, coming out next February. I’m a giant nerd currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Central Florida, and before that, I was teaching English in Tokyo for three years. If you want to get in touch, please feel free to use my contact form or reach out over social media. I’m generally not active on my own (I’m terrible at keeping up with social media), but I’ll always respond if you reach out!

So, onto the main point of this post. I recently did an interview with YA SH3LF that you can check out here if you’re interested! The person who interviewed me was really kind and enthusiastic, and it was a ton of fun doing this with him. So if you’re curious about my journey before I sold my book, the authors and works that have inspired me, or other fun tidbits, I’d love it if you took a read!

That’s all for now, but I’ll be back with more updates as we get closer to A Soldier and a Liar’s release date. I can’t believe it’s somehow less than three months away now?? Be sure to keep an eye out for a ARC giveaway that I’ll be hosting on Twitter starting 12/19 as well! I’ll post about it again once it’s open, but just wanted to give you guys a heads up.

Ta for now!
