About the Author

BJ Gallagher is a bestselling author, storyteller, and poet, as well as a dynamic workshop leader and charismatic keynote speaker. She believes that poetry is the language of the heart, and the heart is where we hold our friends — like precious gems in a jewel box.Her book, A True Friend... Is Someone Just like You, honors everything it means to be a true friend. In it, she reflects on all the different aspects of women's friendships — from sharing secrets to sharing tears, from being each other's cheerleaders to comforting one another with hugs, advice… and maybe a little chocolate.

BJ lives in a cozy cottage in Los Angeles with some of her favorite friends — the four-legged, furry variety. Through her writing, she hopes to inspire others to live a good life, create authentic relationships, nurture happy families, and do fulfilling work in the world.

We all have friends, but a few or one is most special. This book needs to be a gift to them. It says what sometimes we haven't found words for.
