Cliff Etheredge was born in Roscoe, Texas on September 21, 1942, to Pete and Hilda Etheredge. He had one brother, Jay. Cliff graduated from Roscoe High School and Texas Tech University. He then began farming with his dad in the Wastella community northwest of Roscoe. He was a member of the Texas National Guard for six years. In 1972, Cliff was severely injured in a farming accident resulting in the amputation of his right arm. He understood that attitude would determine success or failure. He has since spent his life overcoming the myriad of obstacles that have presented themselves daily.

As a  first-time indie author, it was easier to begin with a children's book. How do you get kids to enjoy reading? In The Greatest Treasure Ever, I tried to instill the sense of Wonder you get as a child while looking at a picture book. My momma was extremely good at mimicry and could change her voice for each character in a book, or she could make animal noises to make the story believable and real. Our bed-time story sessions are probably my most favorite memory with her. She was an amazing woman who suffered a tragic end of life reality.
