Stan Mitchell

I served four years on active duty in the Marine Corps infantry. Here, I’m pictured in the Mojave Desert.

Hello! And welcome to my site!

My name is Stan R. Mitchell and I’ve been fortunate to have now sold more than 70,000 books! 😃 I don’t even have that many relatives or friends! 🤣 You can find all eight of my fast-moving, action-packed books here: http://amzn.to/1brrc37.

I’m an author and former journalist, so I don’t waste time or space. Most people say my books read like movies, and even people who say they don’t “like to read” usually find themselves hooked on my books.

You can find all my books listed on Amazon at the following link, which includes links to ebooks, paper copies, and audiobooks:  .

I’ve been writing since I was a kid, and I’ve always tried to write tight books that race forward as fast as possible and stay super exciting. I try to cram as much action in each book and the chapters are usually short.

One other advantage I have as an author is I know a thing or two about guns and tactics, having served four years as an infantryman in the Marine Corps. You shouldn’t find many mistakes about guns or how things are in real life (I also have a Combat Action Ribbon). I know you often find such errors in books written by people who’ve never served or seen action, and yes, it drives me crazy, too! lol

To date, I’ve written eight books. I have four military action books (the Nick Woods series, my post popular). I also have a private investigator novel, a police detective novel, a Western, and a World War II short novel that’s really deep.

If you’re prior military or like tons of action, I recommend you start my Marine Corps sniper series about Nick Woods, which starts with the first book, Sold Out (Nick Woods, No. 1).” 

If you enjoy mysteries/detective books, I recommend you start with either “Stolen Daughter” or “Take Down, Detective Danny Acuff.

If you loved Westerns such as “Appaloosa,” “Tombstone,” or “Django Unchained,” then take a look at Little Man, and the Dixon County War.” Note: This is not your typical Western that moves slow. It’s a fast-moving thriller set in the Wild West. Tons of action. Screaming-fast pace. And even a love story wound in it to boot.

Finally, if you’re looking for an incredible World War II story, full of some pretty serious depth if I say so myself (what it’s really, truly like to be an infantryman, no matter whether it’s now or a hundred years ago), check out “Soldier On.
