My Story

David Valovcin was raised in Fairfield, Connecticut.  David was a double major and earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Information Systems and his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Fairfield University.  He also earned his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Fairfield University.

David’s first book, A Desk to Lean On, took him on an exciting journey from the early phase of brainstorming through to final publication. It was definitely a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. Ever since that book was published, David is very excited to write more children’s books!

The inspiration and ideas came from watching his daughter, Grace, and how she goes about her day-to-day activities. She is truly the best gift David could ever wish for and absolutely loves being her Daddy.

A Desk To Lean On

What an incredible day Grace is about to have but is she really ready for it???

Grace finds out that she is relocating to a new school, which can be scary for any kid. She’s determined to find a way to never ever attend this new school! With a desk to lean on, staring out her bedroom window, she thinks and she thinks.

As the last incredible day of Summer comes to an end and the first day at her new school approaches, Grace learns that perhaps there is more than just a desk to lean on.

In this timely story, perfect for any child who is nervous or scared or just curious about new things, author David Valovcin shows readers the importance of family and friends, and how courage and strength are gained not just from within but from those around you.


Beautiful story of new horizons

A wonderful story of a young girl nervous to move on to a new experience and realizes that she is not alone and in fact has already helped others experiencing the same feelings. Share this with the young person in your life!

– James T

David and his family continue to live in Connecticut. Every Sunday, they make time to walk through their local bookstore. Of course, his daughter has to walk out of the store with a book in hand. This definitely puts a smile on David’s face.

When not writing, David works within the financial services industry and has been in that field for the past 24 years.  His work has taken him to various locations within the United States and Europe.  David also loves to volunteer at his daughter’s school where he helps to set up school events and be the guest reader in his daughter’s classroom.
