Vince Hawkins author

Writing is the common thread in the life of Vince Hawkins. He wrote little stories in the classroom at age five and hasn’t done much different since. He went to work at 17 and became a financial journalist. By his late 20’s he was writing freelance for the Financial Times and the business pages of The Telegraph, the London Times and the Irish Independent.  His later career included investment analysis for stockbrokers and banks, and magazine editing.

He attended the Open University and did an evening Business Studies course at Northumbria University. His essays shone, but he never stayed the course. He took the practical knowledge he needed and shunned the degrees. 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, able to work from anywhere and roam the world. Now he is on a hedonistic journey of authorship and realizing his bucket list ambitions.

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