My name is Stan R. Mitchell and besides being a super nice guy, I pretty much live for writing — fast-paced thrillers, mostly, but I cut my teeth with 12+ years of writing for newspapers after earning my journalism degree. (Okay, it’s true… I’m trying to be the next Ernest Hemingway with my journalism and war background…)
These days, I like to consider myself an action fiction author who’s doing what he loves!
Like most serious authors, I’ve been writing and studying the craft since I was a kid, so it means a lot to me to have so much love and assistance from so many fans and supporters. Your encouragement and generosity in spreading the word and helping me promote my works is something that means the world to me, so thank you…
For those who are new here, readers have completely flattered me by comparing my books to Vince Flynn, Lee Child, and Stephen Hunter, three of my favorite authors.
So, if you enjoy reading them, you just might like my stuff. I’ve written three books to date. (With about 30 in various stages, but you know how that goes…)
“Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security.
“Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron.
And, “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.
Don’t forget, you can read a preview of each of them for free on Amazon, which is where the links above will take you.
If you want a short bio about me, here’s the lowdown… I’m a prior infantry Marine who earned a Combat Action Ribbon as part of Operation Silver Wake in 1997.
The main things I enjoy doing these days are writing action thrillers, practicing Shaolin Kung Fu, and studying Eastern philosophy.
