About the Author

Writing as J. L. Mbewe, Jennette is an author, artist, mother, wife, but not always in that order. Born and raised in Minnesota, she now braves the heat of Texas, but pines for the Northern Lights and the lakes of home every autumn. She loves trying to capture the abstract and make it concrete. She is currently living her second childhood with a wonderful husband and two precious children who don’t seem to mind her eclectic collections of rocks, shells, and swords, among other things. Here, between reality and dreams, you will find her busily creating worlds inhabited by all sorts of fantasy creatures and characters, all questing about and discovering true love amid lots of peril. She has two short stories published in The Clockwork Dragon anthology, and four short stories set in the world of Nälu. Her debut novel, Secrets Kept, was nominated for the 2014 Clive Staples Award.

Why don’t the other high fantasy authors just come out and admit they’re in cahoots to break my heart into a billion tiny pieces? This is a short story that I think comes to less than twenty pages in print, but it still managed to leave me very saddened. Despite the length, we still get a good glimpse into the world of Nälu and Johari’s inner turmoil. I think Ms. Mbewe has certainly proven that she can write quite exceptionally and leave you wanting more of her world. This was a beautiful piece and I mean to look into the rest of the series!

A low-hanging shrub.

Ditto to the reviewer before me. Evocative and spiritual without being preachy. Moving fantasy.
