oregon (2)Caitlin Hartig is the author of new-adult fiction, dystopia, and dark romance. Raw and explicit, her work is both highly engrossing and intensely dramatic. Smash is her debut novel.

Previously, Caitlin was an active scientific researcher. Her work has been published in the International Journal of Earth Sciences and in the Geothermal Resources Council’s Transactions. While Caitlin is no longer active in the science industry, she is still an avid science enthusiast who advocates for scientific advancement and green energy.

Lately, Caitlin has been studying cognitive psychology and philosophy in her spare time. She loves reading about the brain and learning about how emotions and thoughts are formed (and controlled!). Caitlin is a huge believer in the power of positive thinking and in positive energy frequencies; she believes that anyone can change his or her life for the best with the right knowledge. She has decided to re-purpose her writing– at least for the time being– into a study of wellness and self-care. Her new blog, Find Your Balance, documents the scientific principles that she has learned and applies them towards overcoming and healing the personal life. Caitlin hopes that you enjoy it and hopes that the concepts she shares will inspire you to take a leap of faith to make necessary changes in your life.
