Just a Smattering…

Enter the lives of 3 women, and their buff, beautiful, gay male friend, Beau.

Perhaps you can  find out why one of the women betrays him . . . but beware. 

There will be  drama!

The Sea Isles Series

Visit a little-known island. Feel the tradewinds. Feel as though you’ve stepped back in time.

Oh, but keep your eyes open. Something sinister is at play.

And um, you don’t want  to be the next victim!

This suburban town is quaint and cute. Yet, there are undercurrents.

Are people not as happy as they seem?

Isn’t all well when the shades are pulled and the doors are closed?

About April

Not only is she the author of adult fiction, but native New Yorker, April Alisa Marquette is an editor. One who garnered her love for reading from her mother, a songwriter/recording artist.

While attending college, April enjoyed Creative Writing and Literature electives. This author whose books have been called ‘spicy’ worked on Wall Street and at Manhattan publishing houses.

Someone once called her a ‘collector of people’  but that is because April really cares about others. A playwright and motivational speaker, she successfully tutored middle and high school students. The very students that others had given up on. She has worked with non-profit organizations to empower women and teens to enter the job market. She even volunteered at her local library, and this prolific writer often shares tips with young people on the art of storytelling and writing. She enjoys conversations about  good books, even when those books are written by other authors.

Since family is most important to April, she offers readers the same: ‘friends and family members’ that they may not otherwise have.

While creating the novels that have been called powerfully erotic and emotionally-jolting, she keeps readers in mind. She doesn’t want them to only see words on a page. For them, she wants her work to come to life. Whether she’s penning fiction or non-fiction, April wants to make readers think.

Happily married, she doesn’t succumb to the notion that every story needs a happy ending. However, she will never leave readers in a dark place. She always wants there to be light at the end of the tunnel.

I would love to hear from you!
