My name is Stan R. Mitchell and I write fast-paced mysteries and thrillers. To date, I’ve written ten books and been really fortunate to have sold more than 70,000 books. If you’re one of those readers, thank you.

Some of my favorite authors and influences are Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, Robert B. Parker, and Stephen Hunter. If you enjoy reading them, then more than likely you’ll enjoy my writing.

Besides writing books, I also share great writing (from others) on my website. I love writing and I love reading, and I want to spread the passion that I have for the written word as much as I can. So, subscribe to the site if you want to read frequent posts of great writing that I come across.

Marine Scout Sniper Nick Woods, the series

At last, you have the option to own all four of the exciting, fast-paced Nick Woods books in one set.

Nick Woods, a Marine sniper who’s retired and living in the shadows under a false name, is about to go on the ride of his life.

Woods thinks his government service is done. But after a big hiccup (actually, it’s a HELL of a hiccup), it’s actually just beginning. He’ll soon be going from off-the-grid, to Mexico, to Afghanistan, to Nigeria, and he’ll be doing the bloody work that no one else wants to do.

Detective Danny Acuff, the series. 

You really need to meet Danny Acuff, a badass detective and prior Force Recon Marine. Danny is 6-3 and 240 pounds of chiseled muscled, who played linebacker before he started chasing Taliban assholes across Afghanistan.

Not many people mess with Danny, but when he starts investigating a shady company in a small town, that changes. He’ll soon find himself tangling with big boys from the hills and a couple of bad-ass Special Forces men. Cops die, blood flows, and Danny questions whether it might just be safer to be back in Memphis.
