Spotlight on author Ellen Cummins

Ellen Cummins grew up in the heart of California chasing adventures in the sun. One of her obsessions has always been movies that take on an unexpected twist, leaving her with her heart in her throat. She wears many hats---a mother and wife, retail sales girl and manicurist of over 26 years, and unexpectedly a writer.

Suddenly at the age of 40, an idea popped into her head and she began feverishly pecking away at the computer creating characters and worlds that she soon became obsessed with. From that point on she fought for them to have their own day in the sun inside the minds of others.

Her love of pretty things, be it a pink sparkly purse or a giant and mysterious Cyclamen bloom, inspires her to write colorful characters and haunting love stories that might make your soul just a little sweeter knowing them.

Lizbeth is not your ordinary town and Addison Flynn has been chosen to know its secrets. Its magic keeps the town’s dead locked inside the waters of Lake Lizze; holding the reckless and careless souls deep beneath the darkened waters---and Addison holds the key to setting them free.

The stories of the lake told to her by her grandfather are more than true, but there is so much more than she knows. Everything shifts when her best friend Shay dies in a diving rock accident and something new emerges from the lake, but it’s not what you’d expect.

There are places unknown to the world that are so dark, only the strongest of hearts will survive. The real story of Lizbeth lies tucked inside this place, alongside the most colorful magic you will ever come to know

Lizbeth – what a delight to read. This charming book, although aimed at a Young Adult audience, would be a pleasure for any age group to read.

I loved the way Ellen, has brought to life the land of Lilamarese. In this enchanted place filled with mythical creatures, a beautiful human princess, an evil demon and a handsome hero, the reader is skilfully drawn into a wonderful world of vivid imagination.

If you are looking for a great read that takes you out of the humdrumness of everyday life into the realms of supernatural magic – then this is the book for you.

To sum up, a sweet romantic book that reminds me why I love reading. A bewitching story with a fairy-tale ending.

To give Lizbeth anything but 5 stars would be wrong.

Rating – 5 *****
