Q&A with VincentHow would you increase literacy?
By making it more fun! In classes I fascinated people with the variety of my experiences. I also like graphic novels. They shouldn't be looked down upon. They're can be very educational.What are the ingredients for a blockbuster story to you?
Characters you can strongly emotionally link with. A story that excites you and makes you think. An angle on the story that it unusual!What are your top stories that entertain and/or inspire you?
Stephen King's The Shining always grabbed me both as a book and a film. I loved reading the Flashman books - they are entertaining and I learnt so much from them. I have loved the books by Iain Banks (and Iain M Banks)Do you have any advice to aspiring writers?
Keep going. You don't have to write from beginning to the end of your book. You can write various parts of it and then link then up.Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I think it came from a childhood mix of comics and factual magazines. Certainly my teens it had developed into originality the teachers were sometimes unable to know what to do although one was inspirational.
