With degrees in English and creative writing, her passion for writing is right on target with her love for firearms. She is an avid trap & sporting clays shooter; brass and shotshell reloader; and hunter of whitetails, bear, turkey, and geese. If shopping firearms personal ads, she’d gravitate to Belgian-made long guns, Mauser actions rifles, and classic wheel guns. Outside of writing, shooting, and hunting Kristin spends as many hours in the great outdoors as possible ice fishing and operating a Great Lakes salmon fishing boat. She also enjoys cooking, antiquing, photography, writing poetry, and responding to 911 calls as an EMT. Her first book of poetry, Where Water Might Be Blue was published in 2006.
