What a fantastic year 2019 was, although tinged with the challenge of hitting the menopause full on (seriously, 'challenge' doesn't even begin to cover it), for the most part 2019 was a success.
It was my honour and pleasure to talk at several events in 2019:
Talk on Sun Magic at The Enchanted Market, Bracknell
Talk on Witchcraft into the Wilds, at the Wild Witchcraft Conference, Horndean
Working with energy workshop at the Sussex Faerie Festival
Interview with Quiet Rebel Bureau
Talk on Witchcraft into the Wilds at Witchfest Midlands
Talk on Kitchen Witchcraft at Witchfest International
As well as the Kitchen Witch open rituals and a couple of very fun live Waffling Witch events.
the third book in the Kitchen Witchcraft series, Crystal Magic
were both published in 2019.
My oracle deck, Flower Magic was also published in November.
It was very exciting when Grimoire of a Kitchen Witch hit the 'best seller' mark as well!
What will 2020 bring?

I have been invited to a couple of other events but sadly the distance (cost of travel/accommodation etc) has been too much of a challenge. But a huge thank you to everyone that has thought of me!
