About me

author photo by Nick Belial

Welcome to my web page.  I'm April Lindner, author of three young adult novels: Love, Lucy, a retelling of A Room With a View; Catherine, a contemporary retelling of Wuthering Heights; and Jane, a retelling of Jane Eyre, all published by Poppy/Little, Brown Young Reader.  My digital-only novella, Far From Over, was published by NOVL.

I'm also a poet, with two collections in print: This Bed Our Bodies Shaped, from Able Muse Press, and Skin, winner of the Walt McDonald First Book Prize from Texas Tech University Press.  I write literary criticism and edit poetry anthologies too.

By day, I teach writing at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. By night, I attend way too many rock concerts and travel wherever and whenever I can.  I also lavish attention on my rescued pets--three sweet mutts named Nico, Lily, and Miles. 


I'm a wife, a mother, a lover of all things Italian, and a newly minted Jersey Girl.   

Find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.
