Witchcraft and The Kingston Chronicles

I get asked a lot if I’m a witch, especially by people who’ve read The Kingston Chronicles. Today I want to talk a bit about real life witchcraft and the realism presented in The Kingston Chronicles. The witches of The Kingston Chronicles can do some pretty awesome stuff. From conjuring orbs to astral projection, fromContinue reading “Witchcraft and The Kingston Chronicles”

Little Red Riding Hood

What’s your favourite fairy tale? It should be simple right? Like when people ask you “What’s your favourite book?” or movie, or band. It’s never simple for me because I can never seem to pick just one. Maybe one per genre, but not one that tops the others. I also find as I get olderContinue reading “Little Red Riding Hood”

Blessed Yule!

Merry Yule Southern Hemisphere Witches! I hope you’re enjoying your day.  I’m enjoying connecting with family that I haven’t seen for a while. Today I’m exploring the End of Financial Year Sales with one of my dearest friends. I wish you all a happy day with many blessings.

Why Write About Witches?

“Why write about witches? Are you a witch?” I get asked this a lot. The second part of that question always has an emotion attached to it. The person asking is usually curious, although whether this curiosity stems from their belief that I must be crazy because “there is no such thing as witches” orContinue reading “Why Write About Witches?”

Samhain – Why I Celebrate Twice A Year

I hope you all enjoyed a fabulous Samhain (or depending on your hemisphere, Beltaine)! Samhain, also known as Halloween, is my favourite holiday of the year! So much so that I celebrate it TWICE a year 😊. Even before I identified as a Pagan Halloween was a big celebration at my home. “But why doContinue reading “Samhain – Why I Celebrate Twice A Year”

Art Practice and Deadlines

Today I want to talk about Art Practice and Deadlines. I really hate the term “Art Practice” but I can’t think of a better term so I’m stuck with it. All artists have some kind of art practice. Whether you are an illustrator who draws daily or a painter who keeps an Art Journal; ArtContinue reading “Art Practice and Deadlines”

Indie Publishing: Part Five – The Belly of the Whale

One of the most useful things I learnt at university, in relation to writing, was archetypes. I had a fantastic teacher who was fundamental in my education of archetypal characters and stories. She will never be able to understand how much she effected my own journey and how she influenced my writing. Archetypal characters andContinue reading “Indie Publishing: Part Five – The Belly of the Whale”
