Diane Solomon began her career in the UK as a singer and songwriter on BBC TV. After 15 years of traveling the world as an entertainer, the dreaded Chronic Fatigue Syndrome destroyed her career. She struggled for almost eight years, years of wading through half a life, finally regaining her health with the help of a homeopathic remedy. This launched Diane into new studies and a second career: homeopath and nutritionist. But, she knew that the path of writer awaited, beckoning in the distance.
Now focused on writing, Diane has published three books through Eloquent Rascals Publishing. Her first, "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A guide to the homeopathic treatment of CFS/M.E.," was released in November of 2015 and is a best seller in Amazon’s homeopathic section.
Her second book, "The Ravenstone: The Secret of Ninham Mountain," was written with her husband, Mark Carey, who is a retired biologist, naturalist, and accomplished voice-over artist. It was published in October 2016.
Diane's latest book, published June 1, 2017, is a humorous novel about a woman's five-year odyssey of online dating. It is entitled "88 Guys for Coffee."
Diane lives in southern New Hampshire with her husband Mark Carey, her ReeRee-cat and two gorgeous English Setters.

Abandoned – no, dumped from her 7-year marriage, Laura's self-worth was in tatters. Some people land on their feet. She landed on her ass on the kitchen floor.
Longing to find her true partner in life, Laura takes a deep breath and plunges into online dating. Oh my. What a roller coaster. Only with the aid of modern technology could you line up this many frogs to kiss.
Hilarious and heartbreaking, soul-searching and spiritual, "88 Guys for Coffee" is loosely based on the author's own 5-year online dating saga. The horror stories are true, bizarre, and laugh-out-loud funny.

Sample The Ravenstone: The Secret of Ninham Mountain
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; a guide to the homeopathic treatment of CFS/ME
non fiction, health
Diane Solomon was enjoying life in the UK as a well-known singer, songwriter and actress when the onslaught of CFS incapacitated her, and ended her career. After seven years of misery, and delving into every form of medicinal and healing treatment available, both orthodox and alternative, it was a homeopathic remedy which gave her a sudden, complete cure.
For 20 years, Diane has studied this illness in the course of her practice as a nutritionist and homeopath, so has valuable information that may help. And, as a fully recovered CFS sufferer herself (a rare beast), she has a great deal of experience to share, plus enormous understanding and compassion for those suffering this scourge.
This book does not pretend to be the be-all or end-all book on CFS, with regard to research, orthodox treatment, etc. There are many high-quality books that lay out the theories as to cause, research performed, etc, and all the possible alternative treatments. She provides an overview of these areas. However, few of these books touch on homeopathy in any in-depth way. Diane knows, having worked with many CFS sufferers, that homeopathy is a vital, powerful treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Sometimes, she discovered, for herself and for many of her clients, it provides a dramatic and permanent cure.
