Welcome to my bookshelf . . .

I write fiction for children and adults. My first middle-grade novel went to print in 2012, my second in 2014, and a third is scheduled to release in 2016. This year, I'm adding adult mystery, which I publish as Lu Clifton. My first mystery, Scalp Dance, releases November 18 , 2015. The second in the series, The Bonepicker,  is through the developmental editing stage, and I'm currently working on the third, The Horned Owl. I have several other completed books looking for a  publisher, so drop by soon to see what's new on my shelves.

Kirkus Review says Scalp Dance is a "fine procedural debut . . . made even more interesting by its detailed informtion on Native American ceremonies." See Review section for full review!
