April Henry

April Henry will sign and discuss The Lonely Dead ($17.99; Henry Holt & Company).

New York Times-bestselling author April Henry knows how to kill you in a two-dozen different ways. She makes up for a peaceful childhood in an intact home by killing off fictional characters. There was one detour on April's path to destruction:  when she was 12 she sent a short story about a six-foot tall frog who loved peanut butter to noted children's author Roald Dahl. He liked it so much he showed it to his editor, who asked if she could publish it in an international children's magazine. By the time she was in her 30s, April had started writing about hit men, kidnappers, and drug dealers. She has published 21 mysteries and thrillers for teens and adults, with more to come. She is known for meticulously researching her novels to get the details right.

And that she must run.
