Friday is now Mitch Rapp Fan Fiction Day. Picking up with a short overlap from last week: She took another drink and hesitated briefly before saying, “Is there anything you want to tell me or ask me? I know you’ve... Continue reading

Liberty Lake area in Spokane, Washington, way back in the day after my first season at Longacres Racetrack. Jesus, I didn't yet know you. There are many regrets back in those days. Thank you for forgiving and rescuing me farther... Continue reading

Destination presents a fusion of intersecting characters in a fictitious eastern Washington town in a way almost none of them see coming. In the midst of these lives meshing, spiritual battles rage against some of them, and a reckoning of... Continue reading

Here's the deal. I've read several novels in the last couple of months, but I haven't felt compelled to write reviews for them. What that means in my world is they were a disappointment. I just finished one with a... Continue reading

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise -- the fruit of lips that confess his name. Hebrews 13:15 Continue reading

Exactly. Popular fictional character: Mitch Rapp, the late Vince Flynn's unequaled thriller hero, his legacy resumed by Kyle Mills. We left off here last Friday. Here's a brief snapshot of that segment moving right into the next. Perusing the menus,... Continue reading

This is not a review of the first prequel to Mitch Rapp's life story. Rather it's a post I wrote last year as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador. (I didn't apply for that honor this year.) It explains the kind of... Continue reading

This is truly one non-stop life-or-death conflict after another, Kirk. Phew! DO read Vince Flynn's thrillers. Either start with his first (and only book w/o Mitch Rapp in it) or start with his first prequel American Assassin and work your way through them all. Best hero ever. Vince passed away young at 47 from prostate cancer. Kyle Mills continues the Mitch Rapp legacy. If you enjoy speculative thrillers, I highly recommend Robert Liparulo's novels. Christian author with impeccable thriller skills and high imagination. My favorite is Comes A Horseman from several years ago. And Germ.

I echo your desire for those genres written by men who are Christians, a man who can create a Mitch Rapp figure who recognizes his role as a warrior in God's kingdom who faces the challenges of having to extinguish evil in this world. A man who perhaps struggles with emotional aspects of "relationship" and is more comfortable making war than love. You know what I mean. I just write love stories - no trendy stuff in my world either, Bren. And no predictions from me.

In the world of writing stories, it's sometimes difficult to predict what will turn out to be the next trend. Who knew that stories of teenage vampires would be the rage when the Twilight books hit the stores and then... Continue reading

If ever there was a love song written to express deep love, this is it. And I can't hear it any better than through the voice of Johnny Mathis. Until the Twelfth of Never . . . and that's a... Continue reading

On the thriller site I visit, the guys were praising the new movie of Mark Greaney's first in his series of The Gray Man. As the title implies, the average person would walk right by him and probably not give... Continue reading

Ah, thanks, Bren. Really fun to write. Wish she could be "the one". ;)

These are the original novels by the late great Vince Flynn. We are grateful that Kyle Mills has taken up the mantle for Vince's creation of the unequaled Mitch Rapp. Throughout the stories of Rapp, I've never cared for the... Continue reading

Yup. This is pretty much how I felt today. Apparently, I've always been a drama queen. Sorry to repeat so many of these, but they make me laugh. Laughing is a good thing these days. Father, thank you for the... Continue reading

I know. I'm up to date on this group but definitely haven't read them all. Strengthen yourself for these - if can get to them. I would say they're tough but necessary reading. Summer reading and the dark winter reading: the best. ;)
