V.L. Brunskill is the award-winning 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 freelance 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
