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.
Life has moved on for 17 year old Ivy. She has started college and everything is back to normal…at least as far as her life goes. Then on a fateful Fall day, a book is dropped at her feet. Everything seems to go sideways from that point on. Zack wants to kill her, the fey Elders want to abduct her, and she finds herself surrounded by undead beings. Can she solve the riddle of the Balance in time?
16 year old Ivy has made up her mind. Dealing with life after the death of her Grandparents and having to live with her psycho mother, is no life at all. She decides that running away is better than going into foster care, and takes off to live alone at Granddad’s isolated cabin, deep in the forests of Oregon.
