K.D. McCrite

Dear Librarian:

When I was a kid, I never grew bored. One of the main reasons my mind remained sharp and active was the pile of books I always had around me.

These days, I write those books that chase away boredom. In my first book of The Confessions of April Grace series, readers meet April Grace Reilly and the cast of funny, eccentric characters who people her world. Observant and outspoken, April Grace never lets the sneaky sneaks or uppity snobs get away with anything.

In the second book of the series, CLIQUES, HICKS, AND UGLY STICKS, April Grace faces new challenges as she leaves elementary school to enter the strange world of junior high. More change comes when her mother surprises April and her sister with news that a new baby will join them in the winter. Boy, oh boy, life will never be the same, but April Grace heads right into the storm, clinging hard to love and faith. There is no time to get bored when kids hang out with April Grace!

If you live in the South or in the lower Midwest, I'd be happy to visit your library any time.

  To win one of five free copies of both book 1 & 2 in this series, email your name and mailing address to Thanks and good luck!
