The fifth of seven children, Vince Flynn was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1966. He graduated from the St. Thomas Academy in 1984, and the University of St. Thomas with a degree in economics in 1988.
After college he went to work for Kraft General Foods where he was an account and sales marketing specialist. In 1990 he left Kraft to accept an aviation candidate slot with the United States Marine Corps.
One week before leaving for Officers Candidate School, he was medically disqualified from the Marine Aviation Program, due to several concussions and convulsive seizures he suffered growing up.
While trying to obtain a medical waiver for his condition, he started thinking about writing a book. This was a very unusual choice for Flynn since he had been diagnosed with dyslexia in grade school and had struggled with reading and writing all his life.
Having been stymied by the Marine Corps, Flynn returned to the nine-to-five grind and took a job with United Properties, a commercial real estate company in the Twin Cities.
During his spare time he worked on an idea he had for a book. After two years with United Properties he decided to take a big gamble.
He quit his job, moved to Colorado, and began working full time on what would eventually become Term Limits.
Like many struggling artists before him, he bartended at night and wrote during the day. Five years and more than sixty rejection letters later he took the unusual step of self-publishing his first novel.
The book went to number one in the Twin Cities, and within a week had a new agent and two-book deal with Pocket Books, a Simon & Schuster imprint. Vince Flynn passed away on June 19, 2013 after a three year battle with prostate cancer.

THE EXPLOSIVE NEW THRILLER IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING MITCH RAPP SERIES, WRITTEN BY KYLE MILLS
As a new generation of assassins comes together, the world turns against Mitch Rapp
With President Anthony Cook convinced Mitch Rapp is a threat, Irene Kennedy is forced to negotiate a truce: Rapp must stay out of the country while Cook is in control of the White House. In return, they won’t make moves against him. But the new CIA director has a different plan.
Going after his partner, Claudia Gould, puts Rapp right where Cook wants him. As her cover is blown and enemies from her past resurface, the race to neutralize them is on. But a new kind of killer, a shadowy group known only as Legion, is on her tail. They can’t be called off and they won’t back down until their target is dead, no matter how long it takes. No one has ever been able to identify them. In fact, no one is even completely sure they exist . . .
