Vince Hawkins author

Vince Hawkins is a grammar school educated writer. Writing is the common thread of his life. He wrote little stories in the classroom at the age of five and he hasn’t done much different ever since. He went to work at 17 and became a financial journalist.

He attended the Open University and did an evening Business Studies course at an institution that is now a university, but was then a polytechnic. His essays shone, but he never stayed the course. He took the practical knowledge he needed and shunned the degrees.

He became an investment analyst for stockbrokers and wrote reports on companies’ share price prospects. Later, he was the managing editor for a company that put out reports on the retail industry.

After renouncing the demon drink he became a self-employed editor of business reports and writer for trade magazines. Now able to work from anywhere and roam the world, he is on a hedonistic journey of realizing his bucket list ambitions. One remained unfulfilled:- writing a novel worth reading. Now this has been put right Vince can say with some pride that he is an author.

He has written a series of books both fiction and non-fiction.
