Joyce Benedict graduated from Syracuse University with intentions of studying Art in Italy. Destiny had other plans. Following two marriages, raising sons on her own, she embarked on a life-long study of alternative healing methods that included nutrition, prayer, body work, homeopathy, acupuncture. It has been the 'miraculous healings' that has been her main focus. In time she experienced a few for herself and her work with others.

Since childhood Joyce, has had a deep connection and love of the natural world. Years raising children after college, she had numerous ‘close encounters’ with animals and began to write about them. This passion bloomed into well over a hundred letters written to companies, newspapers, friends concerning the environment and the people most connected to it, our Native Americans. Eventually, speaking to school children about our beautiful planet and the preservation of all that occupy it.

She began writing to record many unusual, rewarding life experiences. Besides acting in musicals, she continued public speaking about the Roosevelts after the tour position ended.  Ms. Benedict writes numerous Letters To Editors of newspapers advocating concerns for the environment, women's issues, and the Native Americans. She loves gardening, historical books and movies, the study of human nature, and the mysteries of life.  

F
ollowing college, marriages, raising my sons alone with little family support or connections, I turned to writing  and finding solace in the natural world. An avid reader of many subjects, the lives of Native Americans and their beautiful connection to Earth and the Cosmos fascinated me.  A senior now, gardening, writing, reading, speaking on various subjects to children  and adults, writing Letters To Editors fills my life.
