Gennifer Albin
Gennifer Albin has a Masters Degree in English with a specialization in eighteenth century women’s studies. Even though this is a highly marketable area of expertise, she stays home with her kids, which means her son uses correct grammar and doesn’t burn down the house. She is also the founder of the incredibly popular blog theconnectedmom.com.

Gennifer likes coffee. Like, a lot. Writing allows her the time to get herself a cup without her kids. She likes books just as much as she likes coffee, however it is easier to read with kid’s hanging onto her than drink coffee because of the threat of third degree burns. This is why coffee gets top billing in her intro. Its huge unattainability.

A recovering academic, Gennifer turned her efforts to writing novels herself. During her free time, she laughs (and cries) with her mother writers group, sits on the National Novel Writing Month Advisory Board, watches far too much Doctor Who (assuming that’s even possible).

She has an incredibly supportive husband who dreams of being on a book jacket: ‘the writer lives in Kansas with her two kids, husband, and a Tuesday cat’.

Gennifer’s first novel published under her own name was called “Crewel” and was released in the year 2012, which is the first part of her “Crewel” trilogy. Gennifer writes young adult, dystopian, fantasy. She also writes under the names of Geneva Lee and Sophia Bleu.

“The Department of Alterations” is the first novella in the “Crewel World” series and was released in the year 2012. In a world filled of woven secrets, one woman seeks this back-alley tailor for a sinister procedure, however she cannot escape from her own tangled web of lies.

The women on Arras are all expected to fall into their assigned roles, then be loving wives, and provide healthy kids into the world’s tapestry. Perfection comes at a hefty price and not just the Arras looms could manipulate each problem away in the fabric of life. Something that Karoline Swander knows about all too well. She’s got a respectable job, her own important husband. And she is just about to commit treason.

“Crewel” is the first novel in the “Crewel World” series and was released in the year 2012. Awkward. Incapable. Artless. That is what the other girls have whispered behind her back. However, Adelice Lewys, sixteen years old, has got a secret. She actually wants to fail.

Gifted with the ability to weave time with other matter, she is just what the Guild has been looking for, and in the world of Arras, getting picked to work in the looms is all that a girl could want. It means eternal beauty, privilege, and being something else besides a secretary. This also means the power to manipulate the fabric of reality. If controlling what people are eating, where they live, and how many kids they have is the cost of having it all, then Adelice is uninterested.

It’s not like her feelings even matter, because she slipped and used her hidden ability for just a moment. Now she has only an hour to eat her mother’s overcooked pot roast. An hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at all of her dad’s jokes. An hour just to pretend it’s all ok. Just one hour to escape. Because tonight is when they come for her.

Fans of the book found this to be epic and they loved every single thing about it. It is a unique and intriguing story that made it tough to set aside for very long. Gennifer delivers a magnificent premise and a complex world that leaves the reader wanting more.

“Altered” is the second novel in the “Crewel World” series and was released in the year 2013. After a daring escape to Earth from Arras, Adelice believed she’d finally be in control of her own destiny. However, Earth isn’t abandoned, as she was always taught it was. It is inhabited by the survivors waging a war against Arras, and Adelice is called on to harness her incredible power and help win this lethal war.

Nothing on Earth is as it appears, though. Everybody’s got secrets, and these secrets are driving her away from the boy she loves, named Jost, and right into the waiting arms of Erik, Jost’s brother. Torn between these two brothers and two different worlds, Adelice has to decide what and who she is fighting for, before time runs out.

Fans like seeing Adelice learning more about who she is, and they liked how the romance still has its adorable moments. This novel is incredibly imagined and ingenious, just like the first novel in the series, and the world is very creative and well thought out. Readers also found these characters to be wonderful, particularly Erik.

“Unraveled” is the third novel in the “Crewel World” series and was released in the year 2014. Independent. Dangerous. Autonomous. They attempted controlling her. Now she is going to destroy them.

A lot has changed behind the walls of the Coventry and some new threats are lurking in its twisted corridors. Adelice arrives back in Arras, she soon learn that there is something rotten that has taken ahold of the world and Cormac Patton requires her aid to reestablish order.

However, peace comes at a horrible price. While the Guild is manipulating the citizens in Arras, Adelice finds she isn’t alone, and she has to just let go of the past in order to fight for the future of mankind. She is going to have to decide between one unimaginable alliance as well as a lethal war that might destroy all that she loves.

Readers found this to be a great ending to this trilogy, as it answered a few questions yet left some with a hopeful openness. It was nice to see the main character take some initiative, finally, as well as the scale becoming larger, and all the different threads from previous novels connect in this one. Gennifer’s writing improved a lot as well over the course of these books.
