Virginia's Ring CreateSpace Front Cover finalCompelling, chilling, sentimental, and emotional, Virginia’s Ring delves into the decisions we make that impact our lives forever. Set in the scenic Shenandoah Valley town of Lexington and Virginia’s capital city of Richmond, the two main characters of Virginia’s Ring share their experiences at VMI and beyond with poignancy and grace, serving as a reminder of how precious people, places, and life can be. Creatively narrated by both a male and female VMI graduate, Virginia’s Ring leaves readers with new or renewed respect for VMI. Founded in 1839, the Virginia Military Institute is a unique military college educating young men and women to become leaders in the military and civilian worlds. VMI has a long legacy of successful graduates who have proudly served the United States in war and in peace. Men and women who wear the VMI ring share a special bond anywhere they meet in the world.

LYNN SELDON got his start while stationed in Germany as a young Army officer looking for some excitement and a creative outlet. During his weekend jaunts throughout Europe, he decided to start writing about his travel experiences. On a lark, he sent a few articles to Stars & Stripes, the daily newspaper for the Armed Forces. From that, a successful full-time career in travel writing and photography developed. Lynn has spent the past 20+ years covering all aspects of travel writing and photography. He focuses on travel within the Southeast US and the Caribbean, cruise ship travel, soft adventure (including scuba diving, hiking, mountain biking, and boating), spa travel and culinary travel. Whether an exotic cruise ship port in South America or a charming little cooking school in Tennessee, Lynn covers the world and his own backyard. Lynn’s work has appeared in more than 500 publications, including: Southern Living; Cruise Travel; Outside; Wine Enthusiast; Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel; Scuba Diving; Dayspa; Porthole; Atlanta Journal-Constitution; Charlotte Observer; USA Today; various in-flight publications; and many AAA magazines.
