I have a site full of authors and poets. In each one

I have a site full of authors and poets. In each one of their works pages, I would like to have a short list of the writers favorites in a sidebar block. And another block in the sidebar to show their latest works. How could I go about doing this? Oh, and I don't know if it matters but when using the CSV import, I made an extra column to signify their favorites as myFav field with either a 1 or a zero. Any help would be appreciated.
