V.L. Brunskill is the award-winning author of the Savannah novel Waving Backwards and the forthcoming memoir The Killing Closet. She is also a blogger at adoptionfind where she shares lessons learned from her (pre-internet) adoption search, and her journey towards spiritual healing.
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, SPIN, and the Boston Phoenix. From rock stars to rocking ions, V.L. went on to become senior editor of an IT magazine, and a technical writer in the ion implantation field.
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
