VJ Books Presents Author April Christofferson!

Author April ChristoffersonApril Christofferson is an American author and advocate for wildlife, wilderness and social justice. In her books and through her activism, April raises awareness on the issues around which she is working to make a difference—the American West's biggest areas of conflict, including wolves, bison, and trapping. She also writes about dangerous practices in the pharmaceutical industry, where she worked for years as an attorney.

The road April traveled to become a successful writer has been a winding one. After receiving her undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Utah, she studied veterinary medicine at the University of Illinois, then earned a law degree from Gonzaga University. April and her family lived in Seattle for 14 years where she worked as an attorney first in the entertainment industry, then in the biotech industry.

At age 40 she wrote her first book, After the Dance, which explored a family dealing with the death of a son from AIDS. After its release, April quit practicing law to write full time; however, just as she finished her second book, Edgewater (April had entitled it "Wild Turkey Moon" after seeing her first wild turkeys at their cabin in North Idaho), she was contacted about a "short-term" position helping a biotech company draft contracts. The short term gig turned into 5 years of working in the biotech world. April had also worked as a pharmaceutical rep to get through law school. The two experiences stirred April to write about practices in the pharmaceutical industry that she believed to be dangerous—and motivated more by the desire for profit than the desire to benefit mankind. The result was her next three novels—The Protocol, Clinical Trial and Patent to Kill—all medical thrillers favorably compared by reviewers to the work of Michael Crichton and Robin Cook. These novels have been selected for inclusion in the Kennedy Institute of Ethics/Georgetown University Library of Bioethics Literature, a collection that highlights ethical issues in medicine and biomedical research

She taught business law at North Idaho College and screenwriting at the University of Montana's College of Technology. She works part-time as a writer and attorney for the University of Montana's College of Health Professions and Biomedical Sciences.

Christofferson currently alternates between her home in the Bitterroot Valley and small cabins in Livingston and East Glacier, Montana.
