Jennifer Seeley is a transsexual woman. After losing both parents to cancer, she woke up and realized that life was short and it was only hers to live, and decided to let her true self out and start her transition to becoming a woman on the outside (she already was inside). Along the way, she overcame shyness, extreme insecurity, and found a new found confidence and sense of empowerment and a true sense of joy and peace from finally being herself. She had to "learn as she went" on her transition due to the lack of practical information out there on transitioning. She also made some mistakes and noticed that a lot of transgendered woman she knew were doing some things that were unhealthy or unnecessary even in their quest to be a woman. In order to share what she learned, she wrote "The Transgender Companion" to help all transgendered women (of all varieties) to have a practical, step by step guidebook to follow. She wants every transgendered woman (from crossdressers to transsexuals and everything in between) to learn to appreciate who they are, find what path is right for them, and have a healthy, safe and enjoyable transition to just being themselves - whoever that is.
