What's Your Story: Steffanie Nicole Barger


Ex cop, business owner, chemical sales rep, mom and writer!

Why did you start reading Vince?
On the beach, then all night. Read American Assassin in 4 days.

Do you have a favorite book?
Kill Shot. You learn why Mitch Rapp is Mitch Rapp. You fight along side him and hope he survives the suspenseful twists and turns!

Who is your favorite character?
Mitch Rapp's conversations with the bad guys!...and Thomas Stansfield's cunning ways for all the right reasons and of course Stan Hurley's attitude and Irene Kennedy's inner strength.

Who do you envision when you read about Mitch Rapp? 
I think of men like Chris Kyle and how they have families and fight for our freedoms and we truly never know what they go through.

If you could be a character in a Vince Flynn novel, who would you be? 
I am definitely vicariously Mitch Rapp. My true personality is quite the opposite though. I would say Mitch is an INTJ. I am an ENFP.

Is there anything else you would like to share relating to Vince and his novels?
There's nothing like getting into the head of an assassin with a huge heart buried deep inside.
