Additional Information:

I grew up in Waterville, Minnesota. My parents are Marlin and Pat Kritzer. I am married and have three children. I like to read fiction, poetry, and history, and I also try to write fiction and poetry. I have fly-fished all over southeast Minnesota and western Montana. I like to drive cross country, hike, ride bicycles, visit state and national parks, watch wildlife, and bow hunt for deer. I like old maps, vintage motorcycles, and western and renaissance art. I also have a lifelong interest in aviation, and one of these days, I am finally going to get my pilot’s license.
