Stan R. Mitchell writes action-packed thrillers, which readers have compared to the works of Vince Flynn, Stephen Hunter, and Tom Clancy.
Mitchell earned a journalism degree from the University of Tennessee and spent 10+ years doing relentless, deadline-required writing in the newspaper business.
Prior to college and his days in the newspaper world learning how government works, Mitchell was a former USMC Sergeant, who earned a Combat Action Ribbon in '97 while serving in the infantry with Alpha Co., 1st Battalion, 8th Marines. (Operation Silver Wake.)
Besides this mission into harm's way, his platoon also served as the Covering Force for the elite Marine Force Recon Unit that deployed with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, Special Operations Capable (MEUSOC). In addition to working with Marine Force Recon perfecting Direct Action missions, his platoon had the privilege to operate with the Navy Seals, training at the art of fast roping and ship takedowns.
Mitchell lives in Oak Ridge, Tenn., with his wife Danah, and in his free time, he enjoys writing action thrillers, practicing martial arts, and studying Eastern philosophy.

Stan Mitchell has written a hell of a debut novel. You get a good picture of the author's raw tenacity and take-no-prisoners attitude through Paul "Little Man" Zachary.
A fateful chain of events turns Little Man's life around and sends him down a path for justice... With the help of some friends of course (and one not-so-friendly dude).
As this is Stan's first novel, it's not without the occasional technical flaws and parts that could have been better if they were expanded/cut. A little more spit and polish by a professional editor would have only made the book better.
With that being said, the ride is packed with action and if you're like me, you'll have a hard time putting it down.
Oh, and the ending? It delivers, big time.
