Critically Acclaimed Columnist & Best-selling Author
Nicknamed "The New Millennium's Dear Abby" by the media, April Masini writes what Dear Abby will never print, and what your shrink doesn't have the guts to tell you. That's why she is America's foremost online relationship advice expert (Ranked #1 by Google!), as well as the best-selling author of four books - it's also why she's gone one-on-one with Bill O'Reilly on FOXs' O'Reilly Factor, become a favorite expert of ABC Entertainment News, a regular on MSN, and a fixture of the Spanish media empire, Univision (just to name a few).
In 2005 that whirlwind and buzz, along with the audience swell to standing room only for her initial Learning Annex seminar "for men only", prompted April to write her now best-selling book, "Date Out Of Your League", followed by it's best-selling counter part for women, "Think & Date Like a Man", next came "Ideas For A Fun Date" and "Romantic Date Ideas". The books lead to over 3,750 national and international articles and opinion pieces, radio and television shows, including those on FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSN, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, New York Daily News, Newsday, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Forbes, Cosmo, Maxim, WebMD, Yahoo! and USA Today - and the critically acclaimed www.AskApril.com relationship advice site and forum - where readers find honest answers to the questions they have, but can't find answers to anywhere else.
