I logged onto Facebook and saw a link one of my friends posted: author Vince Flynn died today at 47. I haven’t read his books, but I know they’re the sort of books I’d like (from what I’ve heard, they’re political/spy thrillers, my favorite genre). The start to his career is very inspiring: after sixty rejections, he self-published his first book. When it sold really well, a publisher offered him a book deal and he went on to write many more books.
I’m sure he will be missed.
