The Last Blackstone
David Freeman is a native Floridian and received both his Bachelor of Science degree in education and Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from the University of Central Florida in 1988. He later received his Master of Arts degree in English Literature from UCF as well, but only after a hiatus of nearly 15 years during which he worked in merchandise and training and development for Walt Disney World.
He has worked at Valencia for many years, first as a senior instructional assistant and Writing Center instructor, then as a classroom instructor for developmental writing I and II and college composition I and II.
Aside from spending time with his wife, Amy, and his two children, Tyler, 20, and Lexie, 18, David’s two greatest avocations are creative writing and parlor magic. These two loves come together in his short story, “The Last Blackstone.”
