A motorcycle-riding, dog-loving, 26-year-old triplet, who spent the pandemic stranded in a small desert town in Argentina with her chihuahua, author Kristina Catlin has stories to tell.
Kristina’s life story, which can sound like an action movie at times, isn't the one that's being told today. Instead, she spent the pandemic revising, polishing and publishing several books that she had written as a teenager.
Dreamers Never Lie focuses on Sophie and Izzy, a pair of conjoined twins who move to the city of Minneapolis, where they are confronted with a whole different social atmosphere than the small town they were from before. In Prairie Lake, being conjoined twins had not been a big deal. They'd just been two girls, nothing more, inconsequentially stuck together. But here, in the city, they were news, they were the very abnormal daughters of Terra Tremaine, the legendary actress that had mysteriously left L.A. for Minnesota and hadn't been heard from since.
Unfortunately, the paparazzi weren't the only new arrivals in the twins' lives. There was Abby, the crazy great aunt who harbored a dark secret; and Mr. Butler, the ethically-challenged donut-munching professor; and then there was Enrico, the peculiar son of an antiquated contract killer — a contract killer that wants someone close to them dead.
"It's zany and fun. The close relationship I had with my sister inspired most of the book, we were always so close that we felt as though we were telepathic," say Kristina.
The author recalls that when they were children, she and her sister were able to predict each other's moves as they passed to each other down the soccer field. Her sister, Kelly Catlin, was a silver medalist in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016, and passed away just three years later. This particular story Kristina wrote when she was 16 years old, biking to and from a local coffee shop every day to finish the manuscript.
Kristina will travel to Puerto Rico at the end of May 2022 to work as an Americorps volunteer coordinator for the Hurricane Maria clean up. She is extremely passionate about social justice issues and is fluent in Spanish. "I have so many things I want to do in life," Kristina says, "I just can't do it all, but I'm going to always try to live life to the fullest and seek the goodness in everything. In terms of new writing projects, I've got some ideas percolating in my head that I'm itching to get down once I have the plotlines sorted out."
