Our Story

DESERT FIRES PRESS was founded in 2012 to publish literature for youth ages 10-13.

In WE ALL GET A CLUE-- from My Edinburgh Files, Libby, Malcolm, and Roopa are back and up to their eyeballs in a new mystery/ adventure. A valuable antique has been stolen during a catered event at Lintwhite. Solving the crime will take courage, intelligence, humility, perseverance, and faith in God. Do the young sleuths have what it takes?

​In our first book, California preteen Libby Carlsen moves to Edinburgh, Scotland, to live with her grandmother. From almost the nanosecond she arrives, Libby finds herself in the middle of a mystery. Someone is trying to sabotage the local bakery. I GET A CLUE was written by children's writer Nancy Ellen Hird. See the Book List for more information.
