Southwest Florida Reading Festival

Got a couple of "Sunflowers" events on the horizon in late March and April...the first coming up is the Southwest Florida Reading Festival in lovely Fort Myers on Saturday, March 20th. At 10:30 am, I will be sharing the stage with the groovy and talented Johanna Moran, whose historical novel "The Wives of Henry Oades" was just released a few weeks ago. (I'm halfway through it now: it's terrific!!) Knowing Johanna already -- we share the same literary agent -- I can guarantee a good time as we relate our debut-novel experiences. There will be a book signing afterward, so come on down (or over, or up, as appropriate) and join the fun. The place to go for more information is the festival website at readfest.org. Hope to see you there!

Dear Ms. Bundrick,

I'm not sure if you are aware of it, but Alyson Richman, the internationally acclaimed author of "The Mask Carver's Son" (Bloomsbury, 2000) and "Swedish Tango" (Atria Books - Simon & Schuster, 2004), has also written a work of historical fiction about Vincent Van Gogh. The book is "The Last Van Gogh" (Berkley Books – Penguin) and it recreates the riveting and impassioned final months of Vincent Van Gogh's life, sometime after the time setting for your novel.

THE TWO OF YOU SHOULD GET TOGETHER, OR TALK OVER THE TELEPHONE SOMETIME TO COMPARE NOTES. I'M SURE BOTH OF YOU WOULD ENJOY THAT IMMENSELY!

Ms. Richman's novel, which is seen through the eyes of Marguerite Gachet (the daughter of the doctor who treated Vincent immediately prior to his death), depicts the tragic relationship between a young girl brimming with hope and an artist teetering on despair. Both a love story and a meticulously researched historical novel about one of the world's most adored painters, "The Last Van Gogh" explores the complexities between patient and doctor, painter and muse. The novel has received praise from literary critics around the world. It has already been translated into Dutch, German, Danish, Finnish and Korean editions. If you're interested, here is a link to "The Last Van Gogh" on Amazon:
