AN INTRODUCTION TO ONE OF OUR AUTHORS PROF. VINTENTE-RAYMONDO FARADAY (VINNIE-RAY)
CO-AUTHOR OF 'JINGLE & BEN & THE MUSIC TOWN GANG' SERIES OF BOOKS Professor Vintente, (Vinnie) is currently a 59-year-old Matador of Spanish midget-bulls. He also enjoys rabbit baiting and bright carrots. He is intelligent and careful, but can also be very rude, untidy and a bit grumpy.
Vinnie has a post-graduate degree in humbugging, a severe phobia of seventeen-legged spiders, a love of crowds, and is obsessed with the game of marbles.
Physically, Vinnie is in good shape. He is average-height with chocolate skin, silver hair and old acorn eyes. Unusually, he has a prosthetic arm; (a lion ate his in 84.) He also has a tattoo of a bookshelf on his lower back.
Vinnie grew up in a middle class neighbourhood. After his Italian father died when he was young, he was raised by his Irish one-legged mother called Eileen, and a small Spanish terrier called Spot.
He is currently married to Bridie, who is 8 years older than him and works as an electrician on the oil-rigs off Aberdeen. She and Vintente have no children, but enjoy their granddaughter Ellie-May and Mandarin ducks, of which they have seventeen.
Vintente's best friend is a CIA spy called Harley Frick. He is invisible, and they are inseparable. They enjoy spreading fake news on Facebook together.
"Good morning Ms Roflower,
Just wanted to say that my 8 year old daughter had a fantastic time with the Professor. I can tell this by her lack of breathing when telling me what happened at school that day!! He has definitely stirred her creative thinking. She says she would love to help the professor write more stories and she has already created her own pseudonym, Professor Pickles McVon Bubbles.
Thank you so much, Kind regards…etc.’"
"The most magnificent and intelligent and amusing matador I have ever met! His knowledge of particle physics is neither here nor there, or sometimes both here and there depending on where and when you are looking, and he communicates this well to attentive youngsters from 3 years and up."
