About

 

Just a little bit about me.

I am a practicing witch and former High Priestess. I have worked within the pagan community as a facilitator and teacher. I love the pagan community, with it's diversity and wonderful people.

I am a displaced New Yorker of 43 years, with 12 years living in rural Ohio. I now reside in Bucks County, PA, a happy medium between both areas. It is an area connected to the land within comfortable driving distance to two major cities. To me, that's perfect.  I live with my husband and some cats.

I started out doing book reviews, got into Amazon reviewers and at one time was in the top 100 reviewers on Amazon. I reviewed Pagan Books exclusively. No, there were not that many pagan books out there at that time. I augmented my studies with books that were of a much older vintage. Some of the classic works. And the works of the handful of respected authors. I have read and reviewed most of the modern authors. I stopped reviewing when the books being published started to sound like the books that had been published. And yes, it was the same old material repeated again and again, just from another perspective.

I also wrote for Llewellyn's Almanacs. I started about 2003 or so, and my last year will be next year. I have written for the Tarot Almanac, which is no longer published, the Magical Almanac, the Witches Companion, and the Spell-A-Day calendar.

The Almanacs offer unique content because the authors are not all the well known authors. While there is a feature by one or two sometimes, most of the work is from up and coming authors, or community people who most folks will never meet. The content is completely different from the usual Llewellyn offerings, and the perspectives are fresh, and unique. I do prefer this format over their usual book offerings. Much more variety.

I worked my way through the Coven of the Mystic Trad, a teaching coven in Pennsylvania, based on a Family Tradition. I have retired from that coven, after serving as High Priestess and Elder with that tradition. It was time for me to move on to what I truly like to do... write and practice magic.

I have produced 5 books. One is a collection of the best interviews my husband and I did for The Wiccan/Pagan Times. That on-line e-zine was our pride and joy for about 13 years. We retired it because, again, it was time for us to move on to other things. We had been in Ohio and we wanted to move back to the East Coast, specifically Eastern Pennsylvania. When changes happen, sometimes they need to be bigger than what you were first considering.

Two of my books are on Reiki. I became a Reiki Master/Teacher in 2000 after many years of practicing. I have had my own Reiki business and have been teaching for many years, both at Events as well as with private students. Reiki is a form of energy work that is easily achieved by the witches and pagans of our community. It has been used successfully by the pagan community for many years in many different types of practice. My own teachings and experiences, as well as some good ground rules and best practices are in my two Reiki books.

The last two of my books are spell books. Over the years I have been a contributing author to the Llewellyn Spell-A-Day calendar, another of Llewellyn's Almanac style books. I have tried to stay away from the usual "recipe" style spells. While they are easy to write and spin out, they do not provide the user with any kind of practical usage. Here is the recipe, go have fun. I would rather explain the process. This is the recipe, and this is how you do the prep work, this is how you prepare, this is how you assemble and execute the spell and these are the possible results. Some people find this much more satisfying to read, digest and perform than the usual recipe format. My books take this one step further - they put the entire process into story format. This makes the process easier to understand coming from a personal perspective, and it makes the reading more enjoyable. The focus of spellworkings in these two books is success and protection.

Give the books a read. I hope you can find something that you can take home and use.

I also read Tarot. I have had a small business of reading for events and private sessions and I still do reading for special clients as well as friends. I am looking at a fiction series of books that incorporates my love for the tarot into the plot. This series is still "in the works" as it has been for a number of years. I hope to eventually make it happen.

As for me, hubby and I now reside in Upper Bucks County now. I write when I want, do some teaching on line, and spend time with friends. I have had lots of time for contemplation. Time to change the website once again, and move on.
