Tampa Bay Reads: Friends and Fiction Linda Hurtado reports

TAMPA, Fla. - They are four best-selling authors who have become great friends, and they host weekly author chats on their "Friends and Fiction" Facebook page.

Authors Mary Kay Andrews, Kristin Harmel, Kristi Woodson Harvey and Patti Callahan Henry started their chats during the COVID-19 pandemic when their book tours were canceled.

Since they first started, their following has grown to 180,000 members.

Each of the authors is celebrating their newest released books, including Woodson Harvey's "The Summer of Song Birds," Harmel's "The Paris Daughter," Callahan Henry's "The Secret Book of Flora Lea," and Andrews' "The Home Wreckers." Andrews also has another book coming this September called "Big Lights, Big Christmas."

They are appearing together Thursday evening at the Oxford Exchange.

If you want to catch their chats on "Friends and Fiction" check them out on Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
