April Brown

Biography

April Brown always had a fascination with history, science, and social science. Too many questions have long forgotten answers. Perhaps, new answers will be uncovered in the future, through studies of the past. Many readers find documentaries challenging. These novels and novellas hope to being the past, present, and future, alive in the minds of the reader through the eyes of characters who would rather not be alive in the time they are. These novels and novellas, while adventures, are written in a more classical style, without extreme action, romance, or violence. Characters think before they act. Sometimes, this leads to trouble.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Trails Through the Fault Lines began as Trails Through the Garbage Mines, a look at what future archeologists would find in our landfills.

This led to the question: How would the archeologists not already know the answers?

The answer: The world as we know it had been destroyed.

Trails Through the Fault Lines shows part of the "forgetting" process.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My novels and novellas are more of a classical style. They lack hyper action. They lack romance. Characters think before they act. Some of favorite authors are: Charles Dickens, and Louisa May Alcott.
