The Witch and Her Strength

Jul 15th, 2018 | By

Strength isn’t about who can roar the loudest. It’s not about who can be the biggest bully. It reminds me of a story I heard as a child. The wind was arguing with the sun that he could make a little boys jacket come off first. The wind blew with all his might and the

May 20th, 2018 | By

Our spiritual teachers and our spiritual lessons appear in all kinds of ways. Some in person and some in spirit. In the past year or so, I truly believed the Goddess had finally revealed her face to me in my dreams. I even talk about this in a previous blog titled, “The Witch and The

My Stall at the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic Conference

May 16th, 2018 | By

As an author, it is a rather wonderful feeling when you realise that you have enough books published to have a stall at a conference all to yourself. OK, it was a tiny stall, but nevertheless it was just for my books. The stall was at the annual conference of the Museum of Witchcraft and
