My name is Stan R. Mitchell and I write tight, fast-paced books, with intricate storylines that keep you on the edge of your seat. To date, I’ve written eleven books and sold more than 70,000 copies. If you’re looking for a fun ride, give one a try.

Some of my favorite authors and influences are Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, and Robert B. Parker. If you enjoy them, then more than likely you’ll enjoy my writing. You can find all of my books here:

To date, I’ve written a CIA/Marine sniper series, a detective series, a private investigator series, an action-packed Western, a motivational self-help book about President Obama, and two realistic war novels: one about World War II and one about Afghanistan.

I’m also a prior infantry Marine, who earned the Combat Action Ribbon.
