Dan Head Shot

I’m a blogger, a columnist, a novelist, an editor, a choral singer, a handbell player, a husband and a father.

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.

I’m a writer, an editor, and a singer. I’m also the Head Writer for Biscuit City Enterprises, which produces the Biscuit City blog each weekday from the glass-enclosed observation post of the Biscuit City Studios located high above the Biscuit City Center. Biscuit City also produces On the Wings of Morning, which is all about my novel that’s in process.

I’m aided by a capable staff consisting of Chief of Staff Molly Bolt, Head Researcher Harrison Bergeron, Security Heads Nancy Whiskey and Harrison Schmidt, and Foreign Correspondent B. Russell Sprout, stationed in Belgium.

    Hi Dan, I saw the article in Pr. Wm Living magazine about your group “Write by the Rails” and wanted to invite your writing group to meet sometime at my Teabar in Gainesville! I have over 30 loose teas to choose from and homemade scones every day! I didn’t get to speak to you last night at the Gospel Night (I was there with my mom, Janet Jensen) and talked briefly with Becky but didn’t see you to talk to to invite you all! Thanks for considering my shop in Gainesville…its a nice atmosphere and a quiet, inviting place with free WiFi if needed. Kathy Hamilton (owner, Uncle Sam’s Niece phone at the shop 571 377 5592) I’m open Wed-Sat. 11-4
