About David Valovcin
“I absolutely love to write children’s books! My first book, A Desk to Lean On, took me on an exciting journey from the early phase of brainstorming through to final publication. It is definitely a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. Ever since this book was published, I knew that I just wanted to write more children’s books!
My inspiration and ideas come from watching my daughter, Grace, and how she goes about her day-to-day activities. She is truly the best gift I could ever wish for and I absolutely love being her Daddy.
My family and I live in Connecticut. Every Sunday, we make time to walk through our local bookstore. Of course, my daughter has to walk out of the store with a book in hand. This definitely puts a smile on my face.”
