April Grunspan became enamored of writing while studying under author Carole Klein at Goddard College during the 1970s. She worked as a journalist and an editor until she took a long break to raise a family. She has now returned to her love of crafting fiction. Her inspiration for The Coat is a Nazi officer's coat her son did, indeed, inherit from his Holocaust-survivor grandfather. This is her first published novel.
