For the longest time, authors existed as mysterious figures that little to nothing was known about. Beyond their name (and even that could be fake!), fans knew very little about the people that brought their favorite characters to life. Cue social media. Now in addition to updates about their upcoming releases, you can see the way your favorite author takes their coffee or where they write your favorite lines. Check out this list of our favorite romance authors to follow on Instagram:
