About me

Stan Mitchell

Hello! And welcome to my site!

My name is Stan R. Mitchell and here’s my short, official biography since it’s always hard to talk about yourself to strangers:

Stan R. Mitchell writes some of the most action-packed, fast-moving gunfighter novels around. Tired of slow-paced, investigative novels that take 50 pages to excite you? Look no further! Stan is the best-selling author of 5 novels in 3 different time periods. He’s also a prior infantry Marine with Combat Action Ribbon, and a former journalist who spent ten years in the newspaper business, learning how to hook the reader, cut out the filler, and just tell the story. In short, Stan is knowledgeable, he’s fast, and his books will blow you away.

Here’s a link to my books on Amazon.

Regarding my military career, which I get a lot of questions about, I’m 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, my 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, my platoon had the privilege to operate with the Navy Seals, training at the art of fast roping and ship takedowns.
