BonSue Brandvik


Born in St. Louis, MO, BonSue Brandvik moved to Florida nearly four decades ago. She and her husband of 28 years, John, reside in Belleair. They have one daughter, one son-in-law and one precious little granddaughter.

Over the course of the last several years, she became involved in the cause to preserve and restore the historic Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Although the fight to save the hotel was lost in 2015, she is determined to maintain a record of the hotel’s grandeur and significant historical contributions to local development, by including these details within the storylines of a four-book series, titled “Spirits of the Belleview Biltmore.” The first two novels in the series, “Pearls” and “Ripples,” are currently available in print, e-book and audio formats, and she is hard at work on the third book, “Redemption.”

BonSue also wrote and illustrated a children’s educational and interactive activity book, titled “Where Do You Live, Exactly?” which uses the principle of the Russian nesting doll, to reduce the size of the universe one page at a time, until at the end of the book, the child reaches his/her own home. And she wrote a children’s book, titled “Coal for Christmas,” which is a story about two little boys whose names are on Santa’s Naughty List. When one boy turns all the toys in Santa’s sack into lumps of coal, it’s up to the other boy to help save Christmas for his little brother and all the other Nice Children.
