 Gennifer Albin – Friday, June 20


Gennifer Albin

Gennifer is a recovering academic who discovered she could write books of her own and people would read them! She lives in a perfect seaside village in Washington state with her family, but spends most of my time in Arras and other fantastical new worlds. She appreciates strong coffee and bold imaginations, prefers her heroines with sass, and is always searching for her next big adventure. Gennifer’s debut novel, CREWEL, was written during NaNo ’10 and she now sits on the official National Novel Writing Month Advisory Board. Her work is represented by Mollie Glick of Foundry Literary + Media.

She holds a Masters degree in English Literature from the University of Missouri. In her free time she plots adventures with her wild children, and watches too much Doctor Who (if that’s possible). Gennifer lives in Poulsbo, Washington with her family.
