Big thanks to Wendy for such an enjoyable interview!

I’m on the radio!

8pm tonight, Wyldwood Radio. An interview and a bit of music too! Enjoy.

Kiddylicious Goodies!

Really excited to be a part of the October Kiddylicious campaign. Ember loves these snacks so it’s no hardship at all spreading the word about how yummy they are!

I think her current favourite is the soft apple biscotti, although like any baby, she changes from day to day! We’re taking some to the baby group tomorrow to share the love.

Inktober: Spell

A wand. My wand, actually. Rosewood bark is hard to draw!

Inktober: Roast

Chickens on a spit held by supports emerging out of twin vortexes roasting over a stylised fire. Why? No idea, I’m afraid.


I’ve never done inktober before as I don’t really think of myself as an artist. I was drawn to it this year though. No idea why! I think I maybe just needed a break from writing without stopping being creative, if that makes sense?

The prompt for October the first was ‘poisonous’. I had been studying mandrake for an article for Pagan Pages, and based my first ink attempt on an old botanical print. Somehow, the feminine aspects of the plant really shouted at me. See what you think.

The Celtic Goddess- Out Today!

I am absolutely delighted to have contributed towards this anthology of goddess wisdom, alongside some of my favourite authors, no less. Ebook only, but less than £2 which is a real bargain for the content. Click image to purchase.

Autumn Colours

I’m an autumn photography addict. I can’t help but get snap happy at this time of year. Colours leaps out at me from every angle and I want to capture it, hold it, cling onto it as if the fiery colours can actually warm me. Expect a few more like this as the season progresses.

I love the way the red maple leaves look against the brilliant blue sky. What’s your favourite autumn colour?

Merry Autumn Equinox!

Joyous Alban Elfed, the light on the water.

Happy first day of autumn, according to many almanacs.

Merry Mabon, to those who honour this name.

Happy Harvest Home, the last grain being stored.

However and why ever you celebrate, may this moment of balance and reflection before the dark starts to outweigh light treat you kindly, and with some joy.
