Local Authors

We are blessed with a plethora of writing talent: folks who grew up in the Tioga & Potter counties of Pennsylvania, who came to live here in the beautiful Twin Tiers of PA & NY, who found stories to tell or a place to tell their stories.

On this page, we're focusing mostly on fiction and memoirs. See other categories under the "local & regional books" tab for regional nature guides, hiking, day trips, regional history, and more!

We regret that there are some books we cannot list as "officially" for sale at our website at this time. Many of these books can be purchased at our store-front location, or by emailing or calling us for personal help in finding, paying for, and shipping these titles to you. 

As a result of the standardized form for the cart on this website, the small print may tell you that it will take 1-5 days to ship a book, or that it has limited availability, or that it is out of print. Regardless of what the fine print says, if the book is listed for sale on this page, we will almost definitely have several copies *IN STOCK NOW* at the store, ready to ship to you today!
