Jere Steiner released his debut book, June of 2023. What he did before obsessing over the book, he barely remembers.
He resides in NW Arkansas and has for over 30 years, now half his life. (Do the math. He'll be the first to tell you he's way too old to write his first book!)
For employment, Jere has worked for the Post Office as a walking letter carrier for 28 years, logging 8 to 9 miles of walking per day. He enjoys the exercise and the time to reflect on his next article, TikTok video, short story, or novel.
If he's not working he's probably sitting at the computer. Though not a day goes by, he doesn't get a good workout in by walking or riding a bike. For his 60th birthday, he walked 60 miles... for fun!
Family has always been his passion. His three grown children are now beautiful people he's thrilled to call his friends. Jennifer, his wife of 37 years, is the center of his world of which he is grateful beyond measure.
More than anything, Beemer, one of Heaven’s chroniclers-in-training, wants to launch his career by writing the story of a famous human. When the ambitious trainee is assigned a lowly farmer’s son, Clayton Steiner, as his first project, disappointment instantly challenges his dream of stardom. Through his botched attempts to glorify his flawed subject (for which his exasperated editor frequently reprimands him), Chronicler Beemer learns how purposeful God’s love is for these flawed humans. As Clayton wrestles with the weight of perfectionism, intense moments of grief, and the sins of his father, Beemer realizes that Clayton’s life is more complex and captivating than he could have imagined.
Clayton’s Chronicles offers an intriguing twist to a memoir. While recounting the day-to-day routines and struggles of Clayton Steiner, it provides a unique perspective that unlocks the incredible value and strength of the human spirit. Written from an entertaining and charming point of view, this book will arm anyone battling family dysfunction or self-esteem issues with hope. Its candid and vulnerable account discusses typically taboo subjects and inspires us all to continue to learn, find empowerment, and understand our ultimate worth to ourselves, our communities, and God.
