Sandy Soyke

Hi, I’m Sandy and I am happy to say I have been able to fulfill a passion of mine just recently thanks to being forced into early retirement due to Covid19 complications – and that is my passion for writing.  I self published my first mini book in August of 2022  which I wrote in seven days.  It is titled “Unlocking the Magic of Crystals for Beginners”.  Then I decided I liked that one so much I turned around and wrote a full length book and had that one published in February of this year, 2023 which is titled “Unlocking the Secrets of Chakras Using Crystals”.  Both books I am very excited about and very proud of because other than a book I wrote in 6th grade, I have never been published before.  Who would have ever thought I would become a Published Author but here I am and I love it.  I spent over 32 years in the healthcare industry working in hospitals and nursing homes which I enjoyed immensely.  I also enjoyed all my second jobs especially working as a Personal Trainer and Instructor for the YMCA.  I loved teaching both children and adults personally and in classes.  It was such a joy to see them succeed in their goals.  Yes, no grass ever grew under my feet that was for sure.  I always worked two jobs and enjoyed both while raising my four beautiful daughters who are now grown and have given me five beautiful grandchildren who I just love to spoil every chance I get.  If you happen to read my books or should I say when you read my books, you will soon realize another passion of mine is crystals – hence the books.  I have been learning about crystals since about 1987 thanks to two wonderful women who became my mentors, when I started working at Howard County General Hospital: Cindy Miller and Marianne Crouse.  They both taught me so much and not just about crystals.  Anyway, thanks to them and my need to learn more I have become obsessed with the wonder of all things crystal.  I hope you will take the time to go on this adventure with me by reading my books and explore this exciting world of Crystals and Chakras.  It will be quite the ride for you and I know you will enjoy it and please go ahead and review my books for me so I will know your thoughts.  Remember, “Crystals are like Potato Chips, you can’t just have one.” – Earth Family Crystals –    Thanks everyone and remember to Smile because a Smile will go a long way!!
