C. R. Grey was born in a house on a pier in Maine - literally on the ocean. She then grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. She received her BA in Theatre from SUNY New Paltz and her MFA in Fiction from Ohio State University.
Grey lives in a sunny apartment in Poughkeepsie, New York, with one black cat, one white cat, and a Boston Terrier named Trudy. She can often be found weeding through ephemera in antique shops and walking over the bridges that span the Hudson River.
The ANIMAS series - LEGACY OF THE CLAW, FLIGHT OF THE KING and SONG OF THE SWORD - are her first novels.
