What's Your Story: Desiree


Please share some of your background:
I am 83-years old and a rabid (yes, rabid) Mitch Rapp fan. I am a University Michigan graduate and have had careers in the newspaper and, the music industry. For 16 years before I retired I had a career in public affairs and fundraising. I live in Florida (after 15 years in Texas). When I lived in Texas I started a Vince Flynn online fan group and also was privileged to meet Vince, an incredible person. In my retirement I am a multi-published romance author

When did you start reading Mitch Rapp? 
In 1999 when I found a copy of Term Limits (a non-Mitch Rapp story) at a bookstore. I was hooked, and have read every Mitch Rapp book since then, most of them multiple times. They just get better each time.

Which book is your favorite/why?
Executive Power, because it was a turning point in Mitch's story and set the stage for future plots. And because it is still as timely today.

Do you have a favorite character and why?  
Irene Kennedy, because she has the brains and backbone to do her job can do the political dance when she has. All that, on top of being a mother.

If you could be any character in Vince's novels, who would it be and why?
Irene Kennedy, because she is my ideal mage of a woman in her position.

Is there anything else you would like to share relating to Mitch Rapp, Vince or Kyle?
Yes. Kyle, you are doing a masterful job carrying on with the series, maintaining Vince's style and never losing the overarching thread of all the stories.
