 The Library of Catholic Authors is a non-profit organization working to rescue Roman Catholic books and to promote and celebrate the culture which they contain.

This website offers a variety of information for Catholics. The collection of poems, essays, autobiographies and web links relate to a number of different topics including marriage and the family, meditation, meeting Jesus, to name a few. Excerpts from the Bible are also noted. The autobiographies included are those of St. Theresa of Liseux, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Catherine of Genoa as well as writings from Pope John Paul II.–Josie Gialanella

Amazon  has a list of Top 10 Catholic Fiction and The Catholic Canon.

The Catholic Writers’ Guild is a group of writers, artists, editors, illustrators, and allied dedicated to building a vibrant Catholic literary and artistic culture. We do this by encouraging each other to create, publish, perform, and share our work; by reflecting upon core Catholic values (i.e., those in accordance with the teaching of the Magisterium) in art; and by networking among ourselves and with others within the faith and literary communities.
