Vinnie Kinsella’s love for book creation began in the second grade, when he worked with his fellow students to write and illustrate a story about the adventures of an ice-cream-loving giraffe. Since then he has worked as a writer, editor, book designer, publisher, workshop presenter, and college instructor. He currently uses his broad knowledge of the publishing industry to assist and educate self-published authors. He is the author of A Little Bit of Advice for Self-Publishers and the editor of Fashionably Late: Gay, Bi, and Trans Men Who Came Out Later in Life. Vinnie lives in Portland, Oregon, where he can often be found sitting in a coffee shop with a book in one hand and a cappuccino in the other.
