About C.R. Cummings

C.R. Cummings started penning her first stories in high school and finished her first novel soon after. She never published it, just had it waiting until the time was right. Her oldest sister's battle with ALS and her request that she would like to see her book published prompted C.R. to get to work.

Quest of the Evensongs was published in 2011 as an eBook and her sister was the first to receive a copy. Since that time she has published numerous other works and currently is revising each for paperback. Her love of fantasy, the forest and 60's music led her to write The Ivy Chronicles.

A self-proclaimed Oregonian, she spends her free time reading, walking in the woods and hiding from the mountain of clothes that needs folding.

I have read C.R. Cummings other books and then found this one. I was hooked by the end of the first chapter. The main character Ivy has not had the best childhood. Her saving grace was her Grandparents who kept her safe without her realizing it. Once she runs away from home after her Grandparents disappear the story really takes off. During her travels to the Coos Bay cabin Ivy meets Zack and Margo who become her friends. Well written and paced throughout. I can't wait to see journey the next book takes these three. For me Ivy could have been any young girl - she just happens to be so much more than average. Timid to begin with and an young woman by the end. C.R. Cummings wove a unique tale that I really enjoyed reading. Recommend this for young adult and lovers of fantasy.

Review by: April Peterson on Nov. 18, 2011 :
This was a really good read. It came to me as a gift and I wasn’t sure about it to begin with. I thought it was going just be about a girl that ran away, and even that part was interesting. C.R. Cummings got inside the workings of the teenage mind pretty good, planning the running and all. Once Ivy got to Coos Bay Oregon the story really took off. I was hooked when I met Zack and Margo. I even liked Laven, never pictured a fairy that way - oops! they are called fey.

Ivy was interesting from the start, the books her grand-ma wrote were fun (I would hope C.R. Cummings expands on them and publishes the short stories) and Zack is day dream material, yum. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasies!

Review by: FantaFire Press on Nov. 17, 2011 :
Ivy doesn’t understand why her mother hates her. All she can do is try to minimize the effects of it on her life. When her Grand-dad and Mar maw disappear, she’s left all alone with a trust fund that her mom forces her to hand over to pay for her addiction. Ivy finally decides that she’s had enough and runs away to her Grand-dad’s secret cabin. There she discovers that nothing was ever as it seemed, that there’s a whole world of fey that really does exist, and that she’s not who she thought she was.

Run, run, run away was given to me as a free gift and is a compelling fantasy told by C. R. Cummings about the travels of a young girl, abused by her mother, who blossoms into who she really is. The story started off a little slow, but ramped up to an exciting finish and I’m sure the next in the series will have exciting themes as well.
