What's Your Story: Jon


Please share some of your background:
I'm a self-employed business owner. I run a college hockey fan site and have a personal blog that I started to be able to share my favorite books, movies, and things that happen in pop culture.

When did you start reading Mitch Rapp? 
I first read a Mitch Rapp novel in 2006, on a business trip to Scottsdale, AZ. The book was Memorial Day and I absolutely loved it!

Which book is your favorite/why?
My favorite novel is Transfer Of Power. It was the first Rapp thriller, and the concept was terrific. it's a very influential thriller novel and I've read it multiple times.

Do you have a favorite character and why?  
I'm gonna have to go with Mitch. He's just such a badass. Various authors have tried to create characters like Rapp, but there's no substitute for the original.

If you could be any character in Vince's novels, who would it be and why?
Stan Hurley. Mainly because I wish I could be that rough, tough and crotchety.

Is there anything else you would like to share relating to Mitch Rapp, Vince or Kyle?  
My mom loved reading the Rapp novels. She died in 2013, and it was cool to have that connection with her. My wife Bridget also loves the novels... it's one of a handful of authors we both enjoy reading together.
