Even before coming to Maine, I lived in rural America. I feel most at home with the scents of the forest wrapped around me, the wind dancing through the branches and my pup running along beside me. I have worked professionally as a therarpist, teacher and college instructor. This is my first novel. I have another on my computer waiting for editing. Maybe this winter I will get it out.
In this exceptional debut novel, "Into the North Woods," Naya Clifford takes the reader on a suspenseful adventure across the crest of the Appalachian Trail, into the lives of a local family thrust into the center of an environmental controversy. Clifford explores conversations about environmental action, racism and religious radicalism in the center of small town America.
