ABOUT

2013-edited2-more color-Rich McNamara & Joni-lunch2.jpg

     Joni has been writing professionally since 1974, and has worked in the alternative health field for over 40 years as an author, educator, practitioner, and consultant. She is a licensed aesthetician and has certificates in nutrition and aromatherapy. She had a private practice in Sonoma County, California for many years, specializing in integrating alternative modalities into lifestyle and wellness programs.

 

     In the early years, Joni wrote for a variety of natural health magazines. She was on the advisory board for one of them. Then, by happenstance, while in the waiting room of a chiropractor's office, she met a man who owned a book publishing company. She told him that she wrote for magazines. He said, "Why don't you write a book?" And so, she did, and he published it in 1996.​​ She has been writing books ever since.

   Joni grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and is a fifth-generation Californian. She embraces writing as a contemplative and personal time. She began writing in earnest when her children were young, getting up at 4:30 in the morning and writing until the family woke up. It was her best time for writing and still is.

    All of Joni’s books are non-fiction. Joni's themes range from technical (her dedication to self-care, natural skin care, and wellness) to memoirs (her love for matters of the heart) to spiritual (her father's influence). Writing is not a career for her, but it is a lifestyle. She always has a writing project in the works. Joni is a member of California Writers Club.

"Using Aromatherapy with Flower Essence Therapy"

          Aromatherapy can be combined with other therapies to synergistically expand the range of effects and produce unique, specific results that otherwise might not be possible. Massage, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, and psychotherapy are commonly combined with aromatherapy. Flower Essence Therapy is not as common or known but is another viable option. This article describes how you can use the two together.

"A Father's Day Letter"

    "That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.” 

--Robert Louis Stevenson
