About April Sadowski

April Sadowski was born and raised in the Dayton, Ohio area. Books were always prevalent in her life and so was the fondness for writing. At the age of thirteen, April began her first novel, Lady From Day. It took over ten years to write, but since the completion of it in 2009, she has written four additional novels and has participated in NaNoWriMo, Camp NaNoWriMo, and Script Frenzy, “winning” at every attempt. April is also an award-winning graphic and website designer and a hemp jewelry maker. She spends her free time (apart from writing) with her husband and three meowing fur-children.

My mind, where novels are born…

And you wonder where I come up with all these “novel” ideas. My dreams are just plain weird sometimes. My dream last night was trippy. I was driving through a haunted neighborhood in an Indian reservation in South Dakota (the … Continue reading

The Firedancer

I came up with the general idea of my new novel for this year. It happened upon my mind during the New Years Eve service at church as I was watching the firelight flickering in their holders above the pews. … Continue reading

Underland: What sort of nonsense is this anyway?

“Hello Hortie,”  Lizzie said, remembering to use Hortensia’s preferred nickname of choice.  “Your books are amazing.” “I didn’t know you read…or liked to read, rather,” Hortensia said, stumbling over trying to not accidentally insult the girl’s intelligence.  What she had meant to say was … Continue reading

Lady From Day

When I originally finished Lady From Day, I had absolutely no intention of publishing it directly myself.  A year later I started on my first NaNo novel, which (as it was easier) was built on the world of Orinda (the … Continue reading
