A relatable exploration into one woman’s impressions about meaningful aspects of existence, including relationships, pets, nature and survival. The poems are both lyrical and reassuring while drawing on realities and situations familiar to the writer. Her intention is to entertain as well as to encourage balance in dealing with both the conventional and the inconsistent experiences of life.
“Love and Other Curious Adventures” includes free verse, rhymed and story poems, as well as Haiku and other brief acknowledged poetic forms the writer categorizes as Braindrops.
The book invites the reader to enjoy one poem at a time or venture into a ‘chapter’ focusing on such matters as Family - Hereditary or Handpicked, Women & Men, Endings are New Beginnings and more.

How fortunate for all of us that April is able to manifest and share through her poetry . . . she offers those of us who are privileged to be exposed to her poems the opportunity to expand our consciousness.” Dianne F. - Humanitarian (re: Belief in Flow)
“…April’s artistry with words conveys a profound sensitivity to the essences which connect life and spirit. I am a convinced believer in the inevitability of our journeys and destinations; our interconnectedness with the rhythms of nature, which her eloquence evokes in addition to predicting our arrival at where we land.” Fred B - Renaissance Art Expert (re: How to Build a Family)
“…. This poem is true, thoughtful, common sense and amusing, It reflects the thoughts and practices of millions.” Mary G. - Religious Scholar (re: A Covid Year in Pajamas)
