My name is Stan R. Mitchell and I write fast-paced novels.

No, I mean blistering fast. With great suspense & twists.

To date, I’ve written ten books. Some of my favorite authors and influences are Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, Robert B. Parker, and Stephen Hunter. If you enjoy them, then more than likely you’ll enjoy my writing.

You can find all of my books here:

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