The Power of Story


“Imagine all the stars above you, each one in its place. Who knows how long they’ve circled us, how many patterns they’ve made over the eons. They’ve guided sailors, led wise men, and inspired poets._ Sparrowfall by .png

Our lives matter.

You matter.

Your thoughts, your actions, your words matter.

And this is why I write. I want to capture the relevance of your life and mine in stories.

Because stories are important.

They make the world go ’round. They open us up to new worlds, new people, new ideas. They’re an awesome escape or a wonderful reality check. They give value and meaning.

And they have the power to push back the darkness and reveal the light.

Won’t you join me to pursue the reading and writing and telling of story?

I’d love to connect with you here or on Facebook or Instagram. You can also get in touch via the contact page, sign up for my newsletter, join my street team, or leave a comment below.

I want to hear YOUR story.

“Why does anybody tell a story? It does indeed have something to do with faith. Faith that the universe has meaning, that our little human lives are not irrelevant, that what we choose or say or do matters, matters cosmically.” Madeleine L’Engle

Jebraun Clifford always wanted to step through a door into an imaginary kingdom, so it’s no surprise she now calls Middle Earth home. Too short to be an elf and too tall to be a Hobbit, she lives in a gorgeous town smack-dab in the centre of New Zealand’s North Island filled with thermal activity, stunning lakes, and enough Redwoods to make her Californian heart swoon. Her unpublished YA fantasy, The Two Queens of Kyrie, won both the American Christian Fiction Writer’s 2015 First Impressions contest and the 2016 Genesis contest. She loves coffee, tree ferns, dark chocolate, and Jesus, and harbours a secret penchant for British spelling.
