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.

Anna is a seventeen-year-old girl, weighted down with the responsibility of caring for her eight-year-old sister Lilly and their dying mother. When their mother disappears, Anna must go to the dangerous part of Memphis, Tennessee to locate her homeless Grandmother Tass and bring her back to the broken down shack in Arkansas, home to the sisters all their poverty-filled lives, in order to act as Lilly’s guardian. After locating Tass, Anna makes a quick getaway in the middle of the night moving what’s left of her family to the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee where an 1890’s Victorian mansion awaits them, property willed to Anna’s mother by a reclusive aunt at her death.

But all is not as it appears as the beautiful Clayton House proves to be filled with paranormal activity. Ghost girl Dilly warns Lilly of sinister entities in the Victorian playhouse behind the mansion. Ashler Walker, hired hand and strong, handsome college man and neighbor, tries to protect Anna and Lilly from the darkness that surrounds the mansion.

Can the dark forces be eliminated in order for Clayton House to become a real home for Anna and Lilly? What mysteries must be solved from the mansion’s past? Only the “spirits” can answer.
In 1955, fourteen-year-old African American Emmett Till left Chicago to visit family in Money, Mississippi. While at a local store in Money, Emmett impulsively “wolf whistled” at pretty Carolyn Bryant. The whistle became the trigger leading to the most brutal torture and murder of a child in Mississippi history. The murderers went free!

So much is NOT known about what happened in those early morning hours of August 28, 1955. Most details have remained undisclosed until—two who were there in 1955 speak from the grave! Is it possible for voices from Mississippi’s past to be heard in the present?

Read the book and learn about Emmett, the funny boy who knew only love until he visited Mississippi. What happened on that hateful morning in 1955? WARNING! This book is written to be graphic, allowing each reader to feel what Emmett feels. Paranormal evidence recorded at four major Till sites in the Delta by Dr. Sue is included. (YouTube links of voices recorded at three major sites are accessible only in this book).
