Clinton Rowntree Blevins was born in the magical land of Jackson, Mississippi. On a trip to England in 1990, he began writing his first book at the age of eight, which was a thrilling success, and international bestseller, in his eight-year old mind. Since that time he has felt an urgency to get his stories out of his head, in some format, before they steal all of his sleep, and drive him mad. In 2008 he began writing screenplays for Luminarium Pictures, owned by award winning producer Mark Fincannon and Tamara Bracken. C. R. Blevins lives in East Tennesee with his wife Ally and two children Tristan and Ada.
