Kyle Mills (born 1966) grew up in Oregon but has lived in Virginia, D.C., London, Wyoming, and Maryland. He is The New York Times bestselling author of over fifteen books, including the latest Robert Ludlum's Covert-One series.
As the son of an FBI agent, Mills absorbed an enormous amount about the FBI, CIA, and Special Forces, giving his novels their unique authenticity.
Upon graduating from college in the late eighties, he thought he wanted the same as everyone else - a corporate job, a nice car, and a nice house. But it turned out that life didnít suit him. He took up rock climbing and was instantly obsessed. He began dating a girl who liked to climb and they moved to Wyoming for the taller rocks and more open space. He credits this as being the best decision he ever made because in a roundabout way, the people he met there are those who made it possible for him to write a novel in the first place. They seemed to have no limitations. Everything was possible for them and he wanted to be that type of person too.
He and his wife still live in Wyoming, but aging elbows have forced him to replace climbing with back-country skiing and mountain bike racing.

A note from John about the new Mitch Rapp series novel, Enemy of the State:
With American Assassin hitting the big screen in a few days, a whole new audience will be introduced to Mitch Rapp. I can't wait to see how Hollywood treats our favorite spy. Maze Runner star Dylan O'Brien plays Rapp, with Michael Keaton playing the old CIA sage, Stan Hurley.
Some wonder why American Assassin was picked for the screen first, after all it's the 11th book in the bestselling series. Consider this - Hollywood likes order and American Assassin is the first book, chronilogically speaking.
Kyle Mills just released his third book in the series, ENEMY OF THE STATE. I recently finished reading it and have to report that Mills has completely captured the voice of Vince Flynn. This Rapp novel not only holds its own against the previous books, but takes it to a whole new level.
The story takes us back to the Middle East Theater, where Saudi officials are working with Isis. Rapp is recruited by the president in a late night meeting to work "off the grid" to bring the crisis to a favorable conclusion. Working outside of the company, Rapp recruits familiar players from previous books as he assembles his team of mercenaries.
No spoilers here, but of course he stops the conspiracy in typical Mitch Rapp style. With all of the twists and turns, I couldn't turn the pages quick enough. ENEMY OF THE STATE - is sure to be one of the biggest books of the year. A special thanks to Kyle Mills for keeping this series fresh and exciting.
