“Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.”

I make my living as a private investigator. I also write, photograph, paint and enjoy blending all three. My new book for children of all ages, FOR ALL THE ANIMALS, is in bookstores now and can be purchased online through my websites.

“If we are to teach compassion for all life in this world, and if we are to
carry on a real campaign against cruelty, and against the destruction of our
environment, we have to begin with reaching children.”
~ Betsy Seeton

My company, FOR ALL THE ANIMALS, hires children from around the world to write, blog, research, and investigate animal and nature related topics. We also hire children artists and filmmakers.

I have three photo books currently for sale. For more information click here.
BEE INSPIRED, my latest book, is a photo book and story about the healing power of bees.

From the Foreword by Dr. Stephen Buchmann:

“Bee Inspired is an intimate book; you’ll be captivated, caught in its spell. It feels as if you are there in the garden exploring, tiny game-hunting with Betsy, peering through the lens of her camera. Here we find the rare talent of crisp, clean writing, along with an eye for composing and taking many of the best anywhere color photos of bees foraging at blossoms.”

Hiring Children to Write, Blog, Research & Investigate

In the fall of 2014, I started a new company called For All The Animals. It’s a place where you can read about animals and nature through the eyes of children. / ABOUT US & OUR MISSION / The vast number of animals suffering on this planet due to outdated notions, ignorance and greed must, as Jane Goodall says, be overcome.
