Author April FoxFrom Asheville, North Carolina, April is the author of Object Permanence and Spine. Family legend says that before she could even stand on her own, she would dance in her walker to the sound of bands like Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd. Her dancing skills have not improved since then, but she has maintained a healthy love for good, loud music, with her tastes running mostly toward grunge, punk, psychedelic rock, and most things with alt- in front of them.
