Meet John Van Roekel

John Van Roekel, a regular San Diego DimeStorier, is our first guest host for 2018. As I interviewed him for this piece, it struck me how lucky I am to get to know the characters in our DimeStory.  We talked over an hour and John’s enthusiasm for writing, San Diego Writers, Ink, history, and DimeStories made for a remarkable conversation.  He inspires me because he embraces life-long-learning and demonstrates how  writing opens the door for opportunities to meet a marvelous community of creative people.  His compassion, tenacity and hunger for historical research led him to write three impressive historical novels: Braver Deeds, Prisoner Moon, and Lorenzo’s Assassin.

Born in Iowa, John’s family moved near Pontiac, Michigan where he attended high school.  He only applied to one school, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.  He laughs as he admits, “I’m glad I got in, because I didn’t have a Plan B.”  He graduated with a B.A. in aerospace engineering and an M.A. in computer engineering.  While raising two sons, John lived and worked in several states before returning to Ann Arbor.
