April has been writing stories since she was in elementary school. She still has her old notebooks, filled with stories and poems - if you are up for a giggle she might let you read a few. Her style has sharpened over the years but the belief in the power of romance has never changed.

Living on the Emerald Coast of Florida, April has been married for 30 years to her high school sweetheart. They have one grown, married daughter they are insanely proud of. April is tolerated by a sassy Quarter Horse and suffers from a severe rock-n-roll addiction. When taking a break from writing, she and her husband attend concerts and plan trips to Disneyworld and Nashville.

Following The Taming Series, April intends to dip a toe into

Yes, there will be a 3rd book in the Taming Series. This will be Tristan's story and the shy redhead he falls in love with. I hope to have it available by the end of the year.

When I decided to get serious about writing Taming Ivy, the concept of a misunderstood Poison Ivy character was just floating around in my head. For a romance novel, there is always some sort of misunderstanding on the characters' parts, and revenge is so one-sided, it was a natural line to follow for this story. But, I really didn't have a particular person in mind when writing. In fact, after the first draft, I realized Ivy was just too wimpy and perfect lol! I went back and gave her some backbone and a few flaws. Same for Sebastian- had to soften him up a little, otherwise he'd just be an over the top alpha who gets what he wants.(less)

“Let me touch you, Ivy. Let me have you...let me love you. This is madness, what is between us...a fire that cannot be extinguished. A thirst I cannot seem to quench. Somehow, you've destroyed me and I cannot bear it. God, I've missed you so terribly." --Sebastian Cain”
April Moran, Taming Ivy

“harsh breathing, little cries of pleasure, the creak of the bed becoming louder as Veronica writhed beneath him, her jeweled fingers tangled in the open fretwork of the mahogany headboard. Her moans climbed in steady increments, higher pitched and desperate as the afternoon slipped away. Sebastian played with her forever, slapping her plump buttocks each time her pace slowed, his hands meshed in the long hair streaming down her back, anchored tight and controlling. Riding her with steady thrusts, he forced her to move faster, finally allowing her to tumble over the edge of satisfaction, her knuckles the palest shade of alabaster from gripping the headboard so hard.”
April Moran, Taming Ivy

“There shall be no need to pretend. You shall be replaced. Indeed, I will erase you. Quite easily, I assure you. --Ivy Kinley”
April Moran, Taming Ivy

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Stories

“Next to music, beer was best.”
Carson McCullers, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter

“I am not proud, but I am happy; and happiness blinds, I think, more than pride.”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

“And people tended not to bother a woman with a book.”
Cherie Priest, Dreadnought
