Sharon is an internationally known Spiritualist medium. She is the only advanced academic Diploma holder in the United States awarded by the Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU) in the U.K. She is also a Certificate holder in platform demonstrating of mediumship and inspirational speaking awarded by the Spiritualists’ National Union International. Sharon is the National Representative for the USA of the SNUi.

Sharon received SNU’s John McIndoe Prize in 2018 for the highest score earned in the Diploma advanced courses and The Olive Haywood Award for Achievement in recognition of achievement over and above what is usually expected of candidates undertaking the Spiritualists’ National Union accreditation or awards. Her award-winning thesis was “Spirit Rapping, Spiritoscope, and Psychometry: The Mediumship of Maria B. Hayden, M.D.,” which she has expanded into a book. The biography, titled In Search of Maria B. Hayden, M.D.: The American Medium Who Brought Spiritualism to the U.K., available on Amazon and Amazon UK.

Sharon is an accomplished and prolific writer (see her other website, www.NonfictionHelp.com). She has written twenty-five books and hundreds of articles. Her memoir, Midlife Medium: A Genealogist’s Quest to Converse with the Dead (Köehler Books) will be released in June 2022. She holds a Masters of Fine Arts degree, earned with Distinction, in Creative Nonfiction Writing.

Additionally, Sharon has been a Certified Genealogist for more than thirty years through the Board for Certification of Genealogists. She believes that by researching and telling our ancestors’ life stories, both the living and those who have passed receive healing on a generational level. (For more about her genealogy services, see www.SharonCarmack.com). Listen to Sharon’s interview about Genealogy and Mediumship on We Don’t Die Radio.

To her knowledge, Sharon is the only person in the U.S. with credentials in both mediumship and genealogy.



“As the sunflower turns its face toward the light of the sun,
so Spiritualism turns the face of humanity toward the light of truth.”
