Author Vince Flynn Has Prostate Cancer

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Twin Cities author of the popular Mitch Rapp series of novels says he has prostate cancer, but that his prognosis is good.

Vince Flynn, on his fan Web site, says he was diagnosed with stage three metastatic prostate cancer in November. Flynn says his treatments are working well and that he feels better than he has in years.

Flynn says he’s started working on the next Rapp book, which should be out in October and that he’s working on a joint novel with Brian Haig.

Flynn’s first book, “Term Limits,” was released in 1997. Eleven other novels have followed. One of them, “Consent to Kill,” will become a movie.
