Seton Hill Alumna Pens Book About Van Gogh’s Sister-in-Law

Seton Hill alumna Marta Molnar's book “The Secret Life of Sunflowers” was published in 2022, with an audiobook being released earlier this year. The novel tells the story of Johanna Bonger, Vincent van Gogh's sister-in-law, who helped create Vincent's posthumous fame. Marta Molnar tried unsuccessfully for years to find publishers for her manuscripts before finding Seton Hill's Writing Popular Fiction master's degree program. She has since sold 50 novels under the pen name Dana Marton.
