About me: My name is Stan R. Mitchell and I’m an action fiction author with books similar to Vince Flynn, Stephen Hunter, and Tom Clancy. I’m also a prior infantry Marine with Combat Action Ribbon, and a guy who spent 10+ years in the news business, working as a reporter, editor, and publisher. I write every chance I get and I’m far too ambitious for my own good.

A super strong book recommendation

I wrote this more than two years ago. Now, two years later, I still feel the same.

So, if you’re interested in something that helped (and continues to help) me tremendously, here she be:

 If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “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 finding 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.

Hear the words of Marine Corps CPL Kyle Carpenter, and be inspired!

“The enemy killed me. I came back.”

These are the remarkable words of Medal of Honor recipient Corporal Kyle Carpenter.

He continues: “I ran a marathon. Completed a mud run. And jumped from a plane.

“I won’t ever quit. I am just getting started.”

Watch the video, be inspired, and be thankful for another generation of warriors like this.

Then think on what he said and tackle whatever problem (or problems) you have facing you.
