In third grade, April was the only girl cast as a reindeer in the school play. They had another casting call because they would not harness her with a boy. Before becoming a New York Times bestselling author, April held a variety of odd jobs, including German translator, cleaning lady, and a brief stint as the girl who jumps out of a cake. Not only can April make a cloverleaf shape with her tongue, she also knows Brazilian jiujitsu and how to get out of handcuffs with a bobby pin. She also can’t parallel park.
