Do you ever wonder what your favorite authors do in their free time when they are not writing their next bestselling novel?

Luckily some authors give their fans an opportunity to get to know them a bit through their social media pages.

Here is a list of some of our favorite authors to follow on social media! Whether Instagram or Twitter is your social media platform of choice, we have some writers for you to check out!

Morgan Matson

Morgan Matson, author of Save the Date, really knows how to give her followers a treat.

A post shared by Mary HK Choi 🔮 (@choitotheworld) on

Mary H.K. Choi, the author of recent New York Times Bestseller Emergency Contact, is the cool older sister we don’t have, but wish we did. While being a television and print journalist and writing a novel, she has somehow found a way to have a rich and vibrant social life, hanging out with her crazy cool friends. Mary is everything we want to be when we grow up and more (even if some of us are already grown up). Don’t know what we mean? Check her out on both Twitter and Instagram @choitotheworld.

 

Tim Federle


Author of The Great American Whatever and the Better Nate Than Ever series, Tim Federle is a comedic genius. Check out his Twitter account if you don’t believe us: @TimFederle.  Some of his tweets are so relatable that we have to remind ourselves that we weren’t the ones who wrote them. We doubt we’re the only ones who feel this way…

 

Sandhya Menon


And last, but not least, we have Sandhya Menon, author of the new From Twinkle, with Love, who is known for posting the most incredible behind the scenes information about her books and her writing process.  Sometimes even WE learn little secrets about her books and inspiration through her social media platforms.  In fact, before From Twinkle, with Love came out, Sandhya treated her fans (including us) to a behind the scenes scoop of her newest book on her Twitter (@smenonbooks). It was kind of impossible not to follow her after seeing that!
