Florida Authors Wiki
Welcome to the Florida Authors Wiki
Here you will find biographical information, book lists and web links about Florida Authors.
This wiki is a group project started by the Readers' Advisory Committee at the Glades Road Branch Library (formerly the Southwest County Regional Library) of the Palm Beach County Library System in Boca Raton, Florida.
Our goals are to be as inclusive and as accessible as possible. To that end, we are defining "Florida author" as any traditionally published writer who was born in Florida, has resided and written in Florida, currently resides in Florida, has books set in Florida, or writes about Florida. For further information, please see the Florida Authors Wiki Inclusion Standards page.
There are additional links about Florida Book Festivals, Conferences, Writers' Associations and other useful web sites on the
Resources on the Web page.
Looking for a mystery, romance, historical, or even nonfiction that is set in Florida? Check out It Takes Place in Florida for listings by genre.
Many thanks to the Lee County Library for their list of Florida authors, which was our jumping off point and inspiration.
If you are a Florida author and you are not on this list, please let us know, or you can register and add yourself. Please follow all protocols already in place. If you have any questions or are unsure how to add yourself, you can certainly send us your information and we will add you in the appropriate place.
Thanks for visiting!
Committee members: Stacy Alesi; Patty Alcorn; JP Chua; Paula Collins; Kristen Stewart; Jayme Yocum
This is a work in progress. Any questions or comments should be directed to the Readers' Advisory Committee at email@example.com. Please put "Florida Authors" in the subject.

I have always felt we should all have a way to express ourselves other than the typical ways of "social acceptance".
it means stepping outside the box sometimes.I feel writing is probably the best expression of all as it is a way for us to leave our mark after we are gone.. and it is the best therapy and least expensive we can get and no health insurance required...I use my tongue in cheek humor writings to expel a lot of frustrations and energies, besides my approach makes people think.
Everyone have a "weedy" nice day..kjforce
