After graduating from St. Olaf College, Kerstin March built a career around writing. During her start as a small town newspaper reporter, and as a public relations professional later on, she always enjoyed bringing out the personal side of news stories.
When she sat down to write her first novel, Family Trees, she could picture the setting clearly. The story would take place in Bayfield, Wis., on Lake Superior’s south shore – a place that felt like a second home to her after spending countless family gatherings there since early childhood. As Kerstin continued to write, the setting always remained the same – but the story unfolded in ways she hadn’t imagined on that first writing day.
After her debut launched in June 2015, her second novel, Branching Out, was released in December 2015 (Kensington Publishing Corp.) Both novels have been translated into German under the titles, Die Zeit der Apfelblüten and Apfelblüten Sommer (Egmont LYX).
In addition to being a writer, Kerstin is the editor of St. Croix Valley Magazine, and a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP), and The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis.
Kerstin lives in Minnesota with her husband and their three children. When her family isn’t scrambling with work, school, and errands, they can often be found up north, braving ice-cold swims, fish boils, and bear scares on Lake Superior’s shore.
