Dr. Sue Clifton
Dr. Sue Clifton was born in the middle of Interstate Highway 55, northbound, in the fast lane. Her life began in the fast lane and she’s been speeding in everything she’s thought and done since. However, at the time she was born, the spot where Interstate 55 would later dissect her life was nothing more than a ram-shackled, brick-siding house with no indoor plumbing in rural north Mississippi.
Dr. Sue Clifton spent her childhood mountain climbing in red clay gullies and writing her own series of Nancy Drew type mysteries. By the time she was sixteen, she already had two plays published. As an adult, Dr. Sue pursued a new passion, education and worked as a teacher and administrator in Canada, New Zealand, Mississippi, Alaska, and on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana.
After retiring from education, Dr. Sue set to work on her neglected passion, and in 2009-2010, she fulfilled the last of the three lifelong goals she had set for herself when Red Rose Publishing published three of her novels: THE HAWK AND THE DEER, INGREDIENT FOR MURDER, and THE GULLY PATH. The unique places where Dr. Sue has lived have provided rich background for the characters created in her novels. Now retired, Dr. Sue Clifton lives in Mississippi and Montana and is able to write full time, except for the time she spends traveling, hiking and fly fishing with her husband Woody and their grandchildren. She also enjoys ghost hunting with her sister Nyoka Beer.
