Painting Lessons from Van Gogh? Yes, Please! (3 Minutes with the Author)

Who wouldn't want to take painting lessons from Van Gogh? Yes, that Van Gogh! In Diane Byington's historical fiction release Louise and Vincent, that's exactly what the FMC wants. But will she get it? And how will the lessons go? Will they lead to something more?

In my latest episode of 3 Minutes with the Author, I chat with Diane Byington who has seemingly done it all! She's been a tenured college professor, yoga teacher, psychotherapist, and executive coach. "She's also raised goats for fiber and once took a job cooking hot dogs for a NASCAR event." And the characters in her historical fiction novels are just as diverse as her background. From a teenage girl who wants to run the Boston Marathon back in the day when women just "didn't do that" (Who She Is), to a museum curator who stumbles across a time travel machine developed by Nikola Tesla (If She Had Stayed), to Louise Ravoux, the innkeeper desperate to escape an abusive marriage and drawn to the prolific painter Vincent Van Gogh (Louise and Vincent). The one thing all of these women have in common is their resilience and determination to do what it takes to make their dreams come true.
