About me

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.

I teach writing at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. I also attend way too many rock concerts and travel wherever and whenever I can.  When I'm home, I can be found spoiling my three rescued pups--Nico, Lily, and Miles. 




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

  1. Hi April, I was in a thrift store in Beverly Hills CA and just going though CDs and movies going to the book section and the first book I picked up was your book Love, Lucy. Without ready anything yet just flipping through when I found your note to Amy Sherman-Palladins. I can not tell you how much I myself am a big fan of Gilmore Girls! I was so excited at what I just read and found that I didn’t bother looking at the clothes or anything else! Lol if you have been wondering what had happened to the book, just know a very lucky person found a beautiful piece of treasure
    Sincerely, your newest fan

  2. Overall, this synthetic urine sample and the corresponding device are an excellent alternative to other THC detox kits. There are plenty of pre-made detox drinks on the market today. It’s important to look at the ingredients within the detox drink to ensure it is packed full of vitamins and minerals that will aid in the process of ridding your body of toxins. The best detox drink for drug testing is Testclear’s Mega Clean Detox drink. In a one-liter bottle, it could minimize toxin levels within one hour and will remain effective for up to five hours.  Keep it close to the skin and in the warmest parts of your body Visit: https://www.urineworld.com/
