I have been self employed for much of my adult life. My first endeavor was a typesetting company. I started typesetting in the days of bright pink punch tape that we fed into noisy machines that exposed letters onto photographic paper that needed to be fixed and processed by hand like a photograph. Eventually, our very expensive dedicated typesetting machines gave way to the PC and typesetting was reborn and called desktop publishing.
Endeavor number two was lampwork glass bead making. I set up a torch and propane tank in my basement and wound my first wonky glass bead on a steel mandrel. I spent fifteen years making glass beads and jewelry, eventually specializing in borosilicate glass beads. I wrote a book of color and technique recipes for borosilicate glass beads. You can find it on my Buy Stuff page.
Endeavor number three was born from frustration with my own chronic health issues and those of my family. I picked up my first homeopathic remedy at a health food store in Rehoboth Beach, MD. I visited a variety of homeopaths and decided I wanted to learn how to choose remedies myself. I received a Certification in the Foundations of Homeopathy (CF Hom) through the Caduceus Institute of Homeopathy. At the suggestion of another healer, I learned to muscle test using a pendulum and this led to an interest in energy healing, The Emotion Code and The Body Code. I created two books of Pendulum Charts and list charts for use with energy healing and homeopathy that are a collection of all of this learning. You can find them on my Buy Stuff page too.
Now that I am semi-retired, I find myself revisiting an old love. Ever since I was little, you could find me with my head in a book. Even though I have a BA in English, I have never tried my hand at fiction. This is my newest challenge and it is both fun and daunting. I am currently working on a science fiction novel. Wish me luck!
For now, this website is home to my books in PDF form, my husband, Mark Seaman's CD, The Island of Serenity and links for my past homeopathy and Body Code clients.
