Award winning author J.C. WELKER has been, among other things, a fashion designer, a graphic designer, a filmmaker, and occasionally a kickboxer (seriously). 

Her short documentaries, which focused on homeless Iraq veterans and LGBTQ+ issues in the military, were selected by the North Texas Film Festival and featured on CURRENT TV.

 

Her recent YA Fantasy novel, THE WISHING HEART, won a YARWA Rosemary award, Athena award, and was a finalist for Best First Book.

 

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, she strives in telling authentic stories featuring diverse characters, and giving a voice to stories that are needed, while facing magic and monsters along the way.
