April D Brown

Biography

April Brown's fascination with history, science, and social science lead her on a quest to uncover forgotten societal mythology. New solutions to old queries will be uncovered in the future, through studies of the past. Her 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.

Her nonfiction is often written at the request of others. Gluten (and allergy) free cookbooks, include tips for tricks for people with multiple common disabilities, including poor memory, low vision, and limited dexterity. Journey Through Life Lists was written at the request of friends with serious memory loss planning their future, and desperate to remember their past. VoiceOver with the Brailliant Braille Display was designed for personal use, when there was no written manual for learning to use a screen reader for the first time as a middle aged adult.

The clear path April Brown dreamed of as a child had roadblocks no one could foresee. Of those, the loss of memory caused far more concern, than the loss of hearing and vision. Deafblind and doing fine, most of the time. After all, vision, and hearing, can be internal, as well as external. With the help of her husband, cats, and dogs, she wanders along the path that unfolds slowly before her. The one she tried to push away as a teen. Writing doesn't come as easy now as then. Though, it seems far more impactful. Full of hidden vision, wonder, and forgotten sounds and odors.

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.
