Welcome to Away With Words!

Away With Words Origin Story
The bookshop was founded by Elise Lee and Geneva Lee. They are sisters, best friends, and continually co-sign each other’s crazy ideas, like opening a bookstore and lifestyle shop in Poulsbo, Washington.

You might know Geneva Lee from her seriously spicy romance novels. She is a New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author of over twenty-five novels. She’s currently working on a paranormal romance series, Filthy Rich Vampire, which is going to have you begging for more. 

 Elise Lee went back to work as Geneva’s publicist when they sold the shop and knows the book world inside and out! She loves getting lost in a good book, traveling the world, and indulging in all the finer things in life. Elise believes that self-care is essential to a vibrant and healthy life.
