JC Gardner is an award-winning, best-selling author, an international speaker, writing coach and ghost writer. Helping aspiring authors bring their projects to life through her coaching program is a blessing and a gift. She has written several books, along with contributing to numerous publications. JC was a closet writer for many years due to a devastating blow in her past that silenced her creativity and almost derailed her God-given talent of being an entertainer and storyteller through the written word. After a phenomenal, spiritual breakthrough, it was clear that what God has placed in your heart, no one can take away. She is a natural born writer; it is infused in her D.N.A. and believes everyone’s D.N.A. makes them Deliberately Not Average! After years of living in a cloud of self-doubt and fear of rejection, she uses her platform as a speaker to transform and empower women to reclaim their destiny using real life examples, practical solutions, faith and humor. JC is a National Advisor at an international nonprofit. She has been married for over 33 years, with two successful grown children.
