  About the author  

Valentine C. Angell was in the army with a tour in Vietnam. He was assigned there just before the Gulf of Tonkin incident. It was in Vietnam that he was given his nickname, "VC." Army buddies thought it was a great joke.

After leaving the army he spent twelve years working for the University of Pennsylvania, Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the Valley Forge Research Center. The family left Philly when his son started school. They moved to Northern Minnesota where they still are today.

During all the time since Valentine left the army, writing has provided part or all his income. In the late 1980's even though he was selling magazine articles, writing a newspaper column, and had ghosted a number of non-fiction books, he decided he wanted to be an "official writer." He went back to college and got an English degree and then on to grad school to get his MFA in English.

Over the years he has written just about everything. In fact, an editor looking at has clips said, "It looks like you have written everything but a ransom note."
