Crystal Gordon is the author of a widely inspiring motivational book, entitled Burnt Boiled Eggs Among Other Things, which is currently under contract with 4RV Publishing.
Further expanding on her natural talent to encourage others, she created a blog that shares uplifting messages from a Christian perspective.
Crystal grew up on a family farm near coastal South Carolina. While planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting a variety of crops, she used her imagination to craft poems and stories that she later applied to paper as original written creations.
After living in a couple of major cities in the U.S. and abroad, Crystal happily migrated back to her home state of South Carolina, where she enjoys writing, singing, and cooking with her cast iron skillets.
