Kristin's newest new release, The Great Alone, was published on February 6, 2018 (St. Martin's Press) and became an instant New York Times #1 bestseller. The novel, an epic love story and intimate family drama set in Alaska in the turbulent 1970's is a daring, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss, the fight for survival and the wildness that lives in both nature and man.

The Nightingale is currently in production at Tri Star, with award-winning director Michelle MacLaren set to direct.
