Vince Flynn Bio
Vince Flynn (born 1966) is a best-selling American author of political thriller novels. He lives with his wife and three children in the Twin Cities. He also served as a story consultant for the fifth season of the 24 television series.
Vince Flynn is a graduate of Saint Thomas Academy (1984) and the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota) (1988). Post graduation, Flynn went to work for Kraft Foods as an account and sales marketing specialist. In 1990, he left Kraft to pursue a career as an aviator with the United States Marine Corps. One week before leaving for Officer Candidate School, he was medically disqualified from the Marine Aviation Program.
In an effort to overcome the difficulties of dyslexia, Flynn forced himself into a daily writing and reading regimen. Quotes Flynn: "I started reading everything I could get my hands on, Hemingway, Ludlum, Clancy, Tolkien, Vidal. I read fiction, nonfiction, anything, but I especially loved espionage."
His newfound interest in such novels motivated him to begin work on a novel of his own. While employed as a bartender in St. Paul area, he completed his first book, Term Limits, which he then self-published. "I had just finished reading The Government Racket: Washington Waste from A to Z, by Martin L. Gross. It is without a doubt the most disheartening and enlightening book about politics that I've ever read. I was out jogging one day wondering what it would take to really change Washington, when my thoughts turned to a friend who had been shot and killed in Washington, D.C., several summers earlier. As I continued running, a story started to unfold."
Pocket Books published the hardcover edition of Term Limits in 1998, and the mass market paperback of Term Limits in 1999, which spent several weeks on The New York Times bestseller list.¹
Vince Flynn Quotes
"I’ve got an extremely intuitive mind that is never surprised by how books turn out. I literally know what’s going to happen from almost the first chapter on—which gets me thinking. I think almost every person at some point asks themselves, “Do I have it in me to write a book?” ~ Vince Flynn on what made him decide to get into writing
"Now, I will outline no more than the first 100 pages or so and then start writing. As great ideas for scenes come to me, I jot them down on index cards and arrange them on a bulletin board." ~ Vince Flynn on the writing process
"As long as there are Islamic Radical Fundamentalists vowing to destroy America and push Israel into the sea this stuff will remain extremely topical." ~ Vince Flynn
