April Henry

April Henry grew up in a small town in Oregon, her family didn't have much money but because of the local library she was "rich in books". She started reading at the age of 3. By the age of 12 she had written a story of a frog named Herman who loved peanut butter and submitted it in to Roald Dahl. As she got older she didn't see herself as a writer so she put her dreams aside, got a degree in business and graduated into a terrible job market. She first found a job at a local hospital which inspired her to write about life and death. For many years she worked full time and wrote one book a year. Since then she has written more than a dozen mysteries and thrillers for both teens and adults. Her books have been short-listed for the Agatha award, the Anthony award, and the Oregon book award. Today she is married, has one daughter going to collage. In her free time she hopes to get her purple belt in kung fu. she also loves running, cooking and reading.
