I hope this space will offer you what you’re looking for. In addition to the brief bio below, this site houses information about my published and in-progress books, dates of appearances, contact information so yoV.L. Brunskill is the acclaimed author of the Savannah novel Waving Backwards. She is also a blogger at adoptionfind, where she shares everything she’s learned on her own search journey that might help you in yours. V.L. also manages the growing Facebook community Adoptees who have found their biological relatives.

Long before she penned her first novel, V.L. was putting pen to paper as a national music journalist at Metronome Magazine, North Shore Magazine, CREEM and the Boston Phoenix.  From rock stars to rocking ions, Vicki-lynn went on to become senior editor of an IT magazine, and a technical writer in the ion implantation field.

As a volunteer adoption search angel, V.L. guides adoptees in the search for birth relatives. Having found her birth family in 1991, her reunion journey entailed a daunting seven-year-search for her birth mother, and another five-years looking for her birth father.

She moved south to be closer to both.

“Searching is difficult.  Finding is life-altering.”- V.L. Brunskill

  1. Thank you for attending my talk with Pat Conroy at the Savannah Book Festival, and for the the kind words posted here. After reading about your work as an adoptee search angel, I thought I’d pass something along that I don’t believe I mentioned in my talk. You referenced the Mexico story I told, which involved the sheep for Antonio. My daughter, MB, who was with us that day, is adopted from Korea. We have three sons, “the biologicals” MB calls them, and one daughter: her. While she was able to learn the identity of her birth family, she hasn’t made a decision as to contacting them. I consider her a great gift from the universe to us.
