Her debut novel, Fireburn, (OC Publishing 2017) has been well received and is being picked up by book clubs around the world. Set in the Danish West Indies of the 1870s, thirty years after emancipation though with worker unrest still bubbling, it tells a story of those who live at Anna's Fancy, a sugar plantation on St Croix, in the lead up to and aftermath of fireburn, the event.
Dividing her time between Downtown Houston and St Croix, Apple enjoys the contrast between the vibrancy of city life and the relaxed pace of the US Virgin Islands. She is involved in the community in both places, and the varied history fuels her interest in art and culture.
Apple believes to be a true global nomad we have to be actively engaged in wherever we call home, for the moment.
