I met Aprill when she was a humor columnist and arts/entertainment reporter for my hometown newspaper, The Victoria Advocate. Her columns sparkled with wit, insight and self-effacing charm. I could see she was destined for the big time.
In 2011, the route to the "big time" took her to Boston, MA, following her talented husband, Ryan, to his job at the Globe as a graphic designer.
Aprill's blog, "Broke Wife, Big City", can be found at www.aprillbrandon.com. She's a wonderful storyteller who taps into the circumstances and feelings we all share and shows us the humor in them. She's also a contributor to The Weekly Dig, Boston's best entertainment magazine.
I recommend you read her now so you can say you discovered her then. This gal's goin' places and she'll regale us all the way with her adventures and misadventures.
