Manassas, Virginia

Bio: I taught high school English for 32 years, all at Robinson High School in Fairfax, VA. My students called me "Mr. V," and I was fortunate to have some terrific young people in my classes. I have made contact with some of them, particularly on Facebook, and enjoy seeing what they're up to. My other nickname, given to me by our then assistant pastor Jim Vaught, is Lieutenant Dan, after the Gary Sinise character in Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies. I never got anywhere near military service, so the name is somewhat ironic. I greatly admire our troops and respect their sacrifices. On the Wings of Morning is my first novel worth talking about.

  1. Hello! We are trying to locate Mrs. Eleanor Toll, who in your September 2013 blog you mentioned was Becky’s teacher at ECU, and now lives in a nursing home in Greenville. Can you give us the name of the nursing home? I would very much like to reach her regarding the 50th anniversary of an honor society, of which she is a charter member. The commemoration is this Friday, May 9. Thank you for your assistance!
