April Henry grew up in a small Oregon town. When she was 12, she sent Roald Dahl, the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a short story about a frog named Herman who loved peanut butter. Dahl later helped it get published. She now writes mysteries and thrillers for teens and adults. Her 2012 books are The Night She Disappeared and Eyes of Justice (with Lis Wiehl).
