April Grace

April Grace has been writing young adult novels for twelve years now, which all started when
she decided to write stories on Wattpad while she was supposed to be working hard on modules
for her A Levels. (But she did go on to study Creative Writing at university the following year,
so it all worked out in the end.)

She has worked for a popular UK bookstore, temporarily worked for Ingram Spark’s Milton
Keynes warehouse, was formerly the Head of Literature for a London based charity providing
creative opportunities for young people, and now owns her freelance editing company, Hooked
On Words Editorial. She loves both reading and writing anything inspired by fairy tales and

At the Book Festival, April will be bringing her novel Steel Princess, a futuristic YA fantasy
about a teen bot raised by humans, who discovers she’s the missing princess from the Steel City,
while Songbird Heir, the second book in the series, will be out later this year.
The Girl Behind the Glass, the first book in a different series, is a dark retelling of Snow White.
