Kristin Beck

KRISTIN BECK writes historical fiction, sometimes with a twist of magical realism. Having long been fascinated by the unsung roles of women in history, Kristin loves exploring forgotten stories of bravery and heroism, as in her novels COURAGE, MY LOVE and THE WINTER ORPHANS (Berkley/Penguin, 2021 and 2022). Her forthcoming novel, A BRIGHT MIDNIGHT (fall 2025), weaves a thread of magic into a historical tale. When not writing or diving down research rabbit holes, Kristin loves to garden, hike, and read – especially with her children. She can often be found buying far too many books at local bookstores, drinking far too much coffee, and getting lost in the Pacific Northwest woods and mountains.
