VJ Books Features April Smith!

Author April SmithApril Smith has traveled to every location she writes about in her books, from the Dominican Republic to Siena, Italy, to Meuse-Argonne, France. She takes pictures and talks to people and just wanders. Back home, she outlines the story on a white board, stepping back to see the whole, and then begins writing chapters, often out of order, according to what presents itself that day. It's a process of both intuition and will that can take from two to twenty-five years, as was the case in A Star For Mrs. Blake.

Set in 1950, Home Sweet Home, April Smith's latest novel is an epic drama that follows the Kusek family from New York City to the heartland, where they are caught up in the panic of McCarthyism, a smear campaign, a sensational trial, and ultimately, murder. Home Sweet Home takes you into the tender heart of a family under siege. Eerily prescient of the fear and distrust we face today, you're in for a memorable ride.

Aside from her newest work of historical fiction, Smith is the author of the FBI Special Agent Ana Grey novels, a standalone thriller featuring a woman baseball scout, and is an Emmy-nominated writer and producer of dramatic series and movies for television. She has two grown children and lives with her husband in Santa Monica, California.
