Meet the Author

Mitchel started writing in 1979 and has written and contributed to over thirty books in his career. Writing mainly in the genres of history and folklore, this is the first fictional novel that he has done in over a decade. He's the grandson of a country preacher, has been married to his high school sweetheart for over thirty-five years, and lives in a historic 1861 home. Mitchel likes to say that his life will be measured in basset hounds, because he and his wife are on numbers 4 and 5
both girls, both rescues, both unbelievably spoiled. The Midnight Saint has been a labor of love for him, incorporating his personal religious journey of discovery, his own contemplation of death, and the loss of both his parents within a few months of each other. He says that it is the most personal, intimate thing that he has ever produced.
