Author Mark Allen interviews me, and tosses some tough questions my way

Author Mark Allen interviewed me earlier this week. He asked me everything from what brought me into the action fiction genre to what I say to those who claim the genre glorifies violence.

Definitely some great (and tough) questions. The interview is located here.

Big thanks to Mark for the interview. He’s an amazing writer, and I’m lucky to have crossed paths with him.

Keep the faith,

 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.

  1. So when he asked you, What do you consider to be the best action novel ever written? You should have said, it has not been written yet. The greatest action novel or the greatest novel have yet to be done.

    But I hope to be the one who writes them.


    1. Thanks, Stacy! (BTW, you officially become a member of Mitchell’s Militia on Monday. I decided that fact unilaterally. And it’s only a lifetime commitment. No pressure. lol)


    1. You’re too kind, Tim.

      And slow. Too slow. (Yes, I’ve decided I’m going to turn into a complete asshole until you do what you know you need to do.)

      So… Would you please republish your book soon? Like, tomorrow maybe?

      (And hey, part of it is self-interest. Both to re-read it. And to use you as a back-up plan in case I don’t make millions. I figure when you do, which you will, I can guilt trip you for a pretty penny or two. And you know I’ve bugged you enough that your formerly rock-hard Army heart will feel sympathy for the silly, delusional dreamer from East Tennessee… And it’s at that point that you’ll send some dough my way…)
