Going over the falls will change you, but how it changes you changes everything.
About C. B. Shiepe
In 1996, C.B. Shiepe went over the falls in his own life when a health challenge landed him in bed with little more to do than write. This story was part of that restoration and was years in the making. It took several incarnations, first a television pilot, then a screenplay, and finally, a novel.
With so much of life already on hold, the last thing he wanted to do was write a book, but he had a story to tell, and perseverance won out. Writing in coffee shops at 5:00 in the morning, he drew on his own experiences working in the entertainment and faith worlds.
Looking back, he never asked himself if he could write a novel, a screenplay, or a television pilot. He just did and learned along the way, starting a publishing company to boot. Belief is a powerful thing.
Born in Lawrence, Massachusetts, his family moved to sunny Southern California when he was four. A graduate of the University of Southern California, he began his career in production at the Walt Disney Company. He has consulted numerous churches nationwide, and co-created three ministries in Hawaii and California. He has coached entertainment executives and pastors on brand management, synergy, and visionary leadership.
Founder and Creative Director of Cliff Falls Media, Inc., C. B. Shiepe continues to develop creative content that explores who we are and how we are connected to each other. Understanding that “at one time or another we all go over the falls”, he continues to write and speak to an inter-generational audience about the Cliff Falls experience. “It’s one thing to believe in something when you don’t need it to be true. It’s another when everything is riding on it.”
C. B. Shiepe has garnered much media attention, recently appearing on NBC, PBS, in Guideposts Magazine, at the LA Times Festival of Books, and speaking engagements across the country, including the Betty Ford Center where actors performed scenes from his novel. His award-winning novel continues to resonate with readers who have gone over the falls in their own lives. For that he is grateful.
Above all, he thanks the One who has seen him through.
After you have suffered a little while, He Himself will restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
Whatever that looks like, he’s game.
