It’s always nice to get to know the minds behind some of your favorite books…especially when you discover you have something in common with them! Whether you share a craving for chocolate cake or can’t help but binge-watch the same TV shows, here are 5 things you probably have in common with some of your favorite authors.
Authors really, really love cats
Ah cats, the mascot of the Internet. No one can argue with their cuteness, and especially not authors. Whether you prefer to follow what suspense author Mary Kubica is doing, or are eager to see what historical author Beatriz Williams is getting up to, you won’t be able to look away from their adorable feline companions.
They are total foodies
Who can resist telling the world when the waiter puts something absolutely delicious looking on the table? These authors not only share what they’re writing and book tour news, but also their scrumptious meals…and we are so jealous! Check out these yummy photos from Amy Meyerson and Karma Brown.
This is not just a chocolate cake with buttercream and gold sprinkles. It is 3 hrs of focused writing time in a coffee shop, thanks to a dear friend taking your dear child for a spontaneous play date, which included baking this wartime cake.

And Pop Culture Junkies
While nothing beats a good book, you also can’t deny the bond you feel with someone when you find out they love the same movies and TV shows as you! Well, whether it’s Jason Mott boldly posting a funny St. Patrick’s Day greeting or Sarah Haywood meeting a Dalek, here are some authors who love to share what they watch with their readers.
They want to inspire And Help others
While their words and stories can definitely inspire their readers, some authors go the extra mile to spread kindness and try to make the world a better place. Whether it’s writing advice from Phaedra Patrick, or words of encouragement from J.T. Ellison, these authors are here to help you out!
The older you are, the more life experience you have, the more you have to write about! Don’t let a number put you off. Go for it! https://t.co/0gluBqUoEp

And sometimes, they just want to chill out
Even authors with the most intense writing routine needs to relax and take a break. Here are some very relaxing photos from Hannah Kent and Amy Mason Doan that have us itching for some quality time outdoors.
