FAN of the MONTH – April

April is part of my Advance Reviewer Group and I’ve had the pleasure of talking with her via email as she reviews my books. I asked if she would mind being my Fan of the Month for April and then I realized her name is April! I swear it wasn’t planned. I hope you enjoy learning more about her and a small gift is on the way.


Hello, I’m April. I’m in my late 30’s and my intense love of books has only deepened as I’ve aged. My parents read to me from the time I was born until I could read to myself and in doing so they gave me a great gift I could never repay. Books are everything to me! And I’ll read almost anything you hand me, cereal box, junk mail, you name it. Ha ha!!

So when I’m lucky enough to find a wonderful new author like, Bette Lee Crosby, I can’t tell you how exciting it is! I live with my boyfriend of many years (and our four very different cats) who also enjoys reading (but not quite like I do which is book after book lol).

Recently I was diagnosed with a chronic pain condition and a few chronic illnesses and was forced to stop working and was just devastated but my love of reading has really saved me! It’s gotten me through some very difficult times lately and some long days.

When I’m reading one of Ms. Bette Lee Crosby’s books I can forget about pain and unwell feelings and just fall into the worlds she created in her books with her amazing talent. Reading is unlike any other entertainment, you can build the story up in your mind, see the details as you picture them and explore it all in your mind.

Getting lost in a great book you can forgot your troubles or stress for hours/days/weeks! It’s truly an amazing thing. Thank you for your wonderful books Ms.Crosby, I can’t tell you how much they’ve helped me and entertained me. 🙂
