Today it's all about Gennifer Albin, author of Crewel, Altered, Catching Liam and Teaching Roman. Find out more about her books here.
About Gen: "I'm a recovering academic who discovered I could write books of my own and people would read them! I live in a perfect coastal village in Washington state with my family, but spend most of my time in Arras and other fantastical new worlds. I appreciate strong coffee and bold imaginations, prefer my heroines with sass, and am always searching for my next big adventure."
Why she's crush-worthy:
- She wrote this amazing blog post, which challenges the double-standard inherent in attitudes towards male and female sexuality. The last lines are a mantra that every girl should live by: "I'm a girl, but more importantly, I am a person. I am complex. I am a walking mass of emotions, ambitions, opinions, and skills. I am a work in progress. And I don't need you to fix me."
- She's a devout Whovian.
- She is the founder of theconnectedmom.com, a blog about positive parenting for modern mothers.
- She supports the visual arts, even organising a competition for young artists to win a cash scholarship.
- She teachers creative writing workshops.
