Clifford Mae Henderson

Clifford Mae Henderson, also writing under the name Clifford Henderson, was named after her grandmother Clifford who once wore a nightgown to a formal event because she liked it better than any of the dresses she could find. Clifford Mae has attempted to follow in her renegade grandmother’s footsteps, spending as much time as possible trying to shake things up. Her novels have each garnered awards, including a Foreword Review Book of the Year Award, an Independent Publisher Book Award, and a Golden Crown Literary Award. When not writing, Clifford Mae and her life partner of over a quarter century run the Fun Institute, an improv school in Northern California where they teach the art of collective pretending.
