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.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 our lives.

Because stories are important.

They open us up to new worlds, new people, new ideas. They’re an awesome escape or a wonderful reality check. They add value and meaning to us all.

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 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 blog signature (1)Too short to be an elf and too tall to be a Hobbit, Jebraun lives smack-dab in the centre of New Zealand’s North Island surrounded by thermal activity, stunning lakes, and enough Redwoods to make her Californian heart swoon. She writes about discovering identity, living without fear, and enjoys creating fantastic worlds. Her unpublished YA fantasy, The Two Queens of Kyrie, won both the American Christian Fiction Writer’s 2015 First Impressions contest and the 2016 Genesis contest.
