Who am I?
Witch. High Priestess. Elder. Best Selling Author. Speaker. Blogger. Writer. Reiki Master. Certified Crystal Therapist
I am an English witch who has been walking the Pagan pathway for over thirty years.
A working wife and mother who has been lucky enough to have had over 25 books published (so far), some of them becoming best sellers.
My passion is to learn, I love to study and have done so from books, online resources, schools and wonderful mentors over the years and still continue to learn each and every day but I have learnt the most from actually getting outside and doing it.
I like to laugh...and eat cake...
It is my pleasure to give talks to pagan groups and co-run open rituals and workshops run by the Kitchen Witch Coven.
High Priestess of the Kitchen Witch Coven and an Elder at the online Kitchen Witch School of Natural Witchcraft.
A regular columnist with Fate & Fortune magazine, I also contribute articles to several magazines such as Pagan Dawn and Witchcraft & Wicca. You will find my regular ramblings on my own personal blog and YouTube channel.
My craft is a combination of old religion witchcraft, Wicca, hedge witchery, kitchen witchery and folk magic.
My heart is that of an English Kitchen Witch.
It was my honour to be added to the Watkins 'Spiritual 100 List' for 2023
I’m starting my own list now, it’s called People I Would Want by my Side During a Zombie Apocalypse, and Rachel’s at the top of it ~ Fika with Vicky ~
