The Sunshine Book Festival,

Gainnesville Florida Jan 27 - 28, 2023

In a pre-Festival interview, Pamela Koons of the Wellness Network discusses writers' inspiration with Laura Kelly Robb and Joy Castro.

Laura and Joy have mysteries set in Florida and they draw from relatively unknown historical events.

Pam delves into the roots of their creative storytelling.

Both authors will be attending The Sunshine State Book Festival in Gainesville, Florida January 27-28, 2023.

Laura and fellow writer, Joy Castro talk with Pamela D Marshall from the Wellness Network about their book and the Sunshine State Book Festival.

Laura and fellow writer, Steve Lanter read a page of dialogue from The Laguna Shore Research Club (not a spoiler) where one character's words reveal his reticent nature.

“You don’t know how happy this makes me,” said Laila.

“She’s pretty friggin’ great, isn’t she?”

“How did you figure it out?” she asked. “You’re both busy all the time, you with work and church, her with tennis and Mindy. I had my hopes, but I thought you’d never get around to it, neither of you.”

“Why did you think we’d be a good match?” he asked.

“Energy, I guess. You both have an aura of optimism.”


“You’re fit. Anybody not fit would feel daunted by either of you.”

“But she’s also very smart,” he said.

“That’s the thing. You’re athletic and bright. It’s not so common to find both,” she said. “It’s wonderful.”

“Thanks,” he said. “But it’s new, very new.”

“Does Mindy have no idea?” she asked.

“It’s a process,” said Ken, his voice dropping, as if to close off the line of inquiry.
