We had a couple of suggestions at Open Book to have a "Local Authors" page. So, here you go. I will be adding information and links as I get them.
St. Joseph High School grad now living in Tennessee, Tasha writes intriguing romantic suspense novels set in Victorian England.

We can't get much more local than former Library employee John Kovach. Until recently he provided valuable service in Local & Family History Services, but now he'll be haunting Saint Mary's College Archives instead. When not poring over old documents, John can usually be found on a baseball diamond. Click here for a list of items available in the catalog.
We have books from Notre Dame Professor McInerny's two famous mystery series, Father Dowling and the Notre Dame mysteries, as well as some of his books on the Catholic faith and his recent memoir. Check our catalog.
Children's author and illustrator from Union City, Michigan.
Find materials by Patricia Pollacco in the catalog.
April Pulley Sayre
Natural history writer from South Bend. Make sure to note the dedication in her book Africa: "Thanks especially to the librarians and other staff of the St. Joseph County Public Library, my local gold mine." Well, thank you, April!

Yet another author who is also a former employee of the Library's Local & Family History Services department. Franklin, a native of North Liberty, has written a book about that area: Southern St. Joseph County.
Sarah Stewart and David Small
One of my favorite author/illustrator teams of children's materials (and one that I haven't had the honor to meet yet, although I have several autographed copies of their books).
