While most kids in Indiana were raised on corn, basketball, and the Indy 500, April spent all the hours she could reading. Many a night found her huddled under the covers with a flashlight trying to snatch a few more minutes of adventure and excitement from each word on the page. Her parents couldn't keep her in books until one day out of desperation she picked up one of her Gran's Harlequins. She's never looked back. Today between shuttling her two children to practices and school, writing, and quilting, she lives with her hero-- the man who will get out of bed at 6 in the morning and stand in the freezing cold to pump air into the dying water tank.
She even finds life can be as exciting as the books she writes. Well... Sometimes.
