Chancellor “Lucky Chance” Jackson was born in Fulton County, Georgia, to Native American parents, he grew up in Smyrna, Georgia, and attended Stetson University. For nine years Chance played football at the high school and collegiate level. After graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Communication and Media Studies, Chance lived abroad in China from 2018-2019 based on his decision to pursue a teaching job. Chance fell into writing after his traumatic experience of being arrested, and detained in Beijing for 14 days.
Our guest’s nightmare began on April 4, 2019, when Beijing authorities showed up to his apartment unannounced and arrested Chance on drug charges. The Chinese Authorities detained Chance without providing any information about the nature of the alleged charges against him, and he was denied legal representation. After 14 hours of sitting handcuffed in a holding cell, Chance found himself assigned to Beijing Jail No. 6. Chance stayed in his cell with 14 Chinese men and 9 wooden beds for 24 hours a day while he was detained. During this time, he had no idea how many days he would remain in jail, or whether he would be set free. Thoughts like “Does anyone even know I am here?” troubled Chance at times. His first book, "14 Days in Beijing" has ranked #1 over fifteen times on Amazon in multiple genres.
