BIO

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 three.  

 

I love to learn, I love to study and I have done so from books, online resources schools and wonderful mentors over the years and still continues 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...

I often give talks to pagan groups and co-run open rituals and workshops run by the Kitchen Witch Coven.

 

I am 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 BooksWitches & 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.
