Sweet Dreams – 50 Romantic Bedtime Stories for Big Girls (Oak Tree Press)
This book is romance for busy women who don’t have time to read more than a few minutes at a time.

Each of these stories take less than ten minutes to read so they can be read while waiting for a bus, having your morning coffee, or just before you go to bed. Every story is different, they are funny, touching, inspiring and above all, romantic. They are about imperfect people searching for perfect love, young love, first love, old love, lost love and love that lasts forever.  Sometimes love isn’t about roses and candlelight, sometimes love is about a rusty bucket, burned biscuits, a giraffe, a lost dog or a snowman. Love can be found in the most unexpected places with the most unlikely people and sometimes they really do live happily ever after.

Nobody Dies in Kansas
By April Knight

Welcome to April Knight's new blog!
When April Knight was nine years old, her teacher asked the class to
write a paper about what they wanted to be when they grew up.  April
wrote, "When I grow up, I want to be Tandaleah, Fire Goddess of the
Volcano..." and she asked the teacher if "goddess" was spelled with
two "D"s.  The teacher as well as the students burst into hysterical
laughter.  The teacher told her that nobody could be a fire goddess
because they didn't exist and what was April's second choice.  April
said she would indeed be a fire goddess, live on a volcano and she was
also going to write and illustrate books when she grew up.  The
teacher told her that was impossible, it took years of college to be a
writer or an illustrator and even then, there was only one chance in a
million she could do it.  April was called "Tandaleah" and taunted and
ridiculed without mercy for the rest of the school year.

When April was thirteen, the first story she ever wrote was published
in a national magazine and she became a published writer. Before she
was eighteen she had sold over fifty short stories.

Her first book, which she also illustrated, became a world wide best
seller. She moved to Hawaii and lived next to the Kilauea volcano, the
most active volcano in the world. She didn't become a goddess, but
three out of four of her childhood dreams had come true.

April is a professional artist and has owned two galleries but
considers herself first and foremost a writer, sometimes writing a
complete novel in two weeks.

She writes in a variety of genre, romance, mystery, humor and
inspirational, but her favorite subject is love, love found and
especially love lost.  The most memorable love stories are about lost
love...after all, who remembers the names of ships that don't sink?

April's favorite past times  are horseback riding and beachcombing and
nothing makes her happier than combining them and galloping along a
beach, all the better if it is a stormy day with the wind howling and
waves crashing.

April currently lives near Seattle and spends her winters in Australia.

She collects antique ink wells and quills.

She just finished writing a mystery, "Nobody Dies in Kansas" and a
romance, "Stars in the Desert."

Courage doesn't roar, courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day
saying, I'll try again tomorrow.                   M. Radmacher
