One Question Q&A with Gennifer Albin, author of Crewel

Hi and welcome to the One Question Q&A with author Gennifer Albin! We're here to celebrate the release of Gennifer's novel, Crewel, which was released October 16. Congrats Gennifer! 
A bunch of us from the Crewel Street Team are participating in this one question blog tour where Gennifer will be answering one question a day.

My Question:
Who would be your fictional nemesis?

Gennifer: Dolores Umbridge, both because she's evil and because she puts too much sugar in her tea. 

Incapable. Awkward. Artless.

That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail.

Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.

Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight.

Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.

Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back.
Add it on goodreads!

Author bio:
I like coffee. A lot. Writing gives me time to go get a cup without my kids. I like books as much as I like coffee, but it is easier to read with children hanging on you than drink coffee due to the threat of third degree burns. That's why coffee gets top billing in my intro: its unnattainability.

I hold a Masters in English with specialization in 18th century women's studies. While this is a highly marketable area of expertise, I stay home with my kids, which means my 3 year-old son uses correct grammar and doesn't burn down the house.

I have a ridiculously supportive husband who dreams of being included on a book jacket: "The author lives in Kansas with her husband, two children, and a Tuesday cat."

  1. Excellent question and answer. I can't stand Dolores Umbridge either. I recently watched HP and the Order of the Phoenix and had a hard time not screaming at the TV, such was my hatred of that woman.

    Your blog design is really cute, by the way.


Thanks so much for commenting! I read every single one and they always make my day! <3

*Sorry, this is now an awards-free blog as I've already been nominated for them. Thanks for your consideration!
