About Us

I’m so glad you found Author and Friends. This little corner of the digital world is filled with items I love from businesses I adore: Out of Print, Socksmith, Culturenik, Bag Ladies Tea, The Unemployed Philosophers Guild to mention a few.

I’ve also included some items I made, such as the gorgeous altered wooden cigar boxes and journals featuring Graphic 45 paper.

If you’re a book lover like me, you enjoy finding unique literary gifts for family, friends, teachers, co-workers, book club members and more. I hope you fall in love with these items as much as I have. As an author of more than 15 titles, I can’t get enough bookish products in my life. 

 Please browse and enjoy! And if you buy something, I’d love to see a photo of you using the product, whether it’s wearing a pair of socks, carrying a tote, making a cup of Novel Tea or drinking from one of the awesome mugs. 

Again, thank you for stopping by. Have a fantastic day and keep reading.
