What's Your Story: Richard

I spent 36 years working for the DoD.  My last position was working for a 4-star admiral.  I'm sure there are some real life Mitch Rapp's out there.  Think I met a couple.  

When did you start reading Vince?
I heard a radio talk show host (Neal Borts) talking about the books.  So, started reading somewhere around 2005.   Hooked from the first book I read.

Do you have a favorite book?
Memorial Day is my favorite book, but have loved all of them. 

Who is your favorite character?
Irene Kennedy.   But Mitch is also a favorite.  

Who do you envision when you read about Mitch Rapp? 
I picture Mitch Rapp looking like the former NFL football player Tim Tebow. 

If you could be any character in the Mitch Rapp series, who would it be and why?
Scott Coleman. Former Navy Seal.  

Is there anything else you would like to share relating to Vince and his novels?
Some of the Vince Flynn characters strike an uncanny resemblance to real-life people I knew and met in my DoD career.  I'm sure Vince interviewed some of the real-life people and patterned his characters after them Scott Coleman is a lot like a real life guy with the first name of Eric.
