Who am I?
I am a witch...have been for a very long time, not the green skinned warty kind obviously...the real sort, but I am also a working wife and mother who has also been lucky enough to write and have published a book or eighteen.
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...and my hair changes every week...
It is my honour 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, it is also my pleasure to contribute articles to several magazines such as Pagan Dawn, The Magical Times and Witchcraft & Wicca. You will also find my regular ramblings on the Patheos Pagan, Moon Books, Witches & Pagans, and my own personal blogs.
My craft is a combination of old religion witchcraft, Wicca, wild witchcraft, kitchen witchery, green witchery and folk magic. My heart is that of a Kitchen Witch.
