My background is football and the West Coast Offense. I've written two football books and one novel.
When did you start reading Vince?
When my football career came to an end I moved home to take a little time off. I coached at UCLA and at two high schools in Oregon. It was a great career. My Dad had an entire stack of Vince Flynn books. I'm an avid reader, but hadn't had the time to read the Mitch Rapp books. I started reading them. My Mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer and those books
took on an entirely new meaning. I read to keep my sanity. I read all of his books and re-read several of them. It was a nice distraction from the horrors of cancer. Unfortunately my Mom didn't beat cancer; she died 18 months and 11 days ago, but who is counting. She is in a better place. Life changes and continues down an altered path.
Do you have a favorite book?
I don't have a favorite one. I like them all.
Who is your favorite character?
They're all interesting!
Who do you envision when you read about Mitch Rapp?
Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire).
If you could be a character in a Vince Flynn novel, who would you be?
I would want to be one of the bad guys so I would know how horrific it would be to be hunted by the American Assassin!
Is there anything else you would like to share relating to Vince and his novels?
I am so excited to hear that Kyle Mills is continuing the Mitch Rapp story line.
