From my blog: on Paganism without winter. #spiritual #pagan #witchcraft 
It's impossible not to compare – go from the #2 largest Pagan population in the country to the #1 largest, and you notice a few things. Especially as your context for a place builds, and your understanding deepens. photo by Diana Rajchel. I think that the mild climate makes Pagans in the Bay ...

Heads up - my schedule for #Pantheacon next week. I am in Portland right now, escaping the Superbowl. Friday, drop by in the afternoon for a reading (or to bring me coffee, or people really into giving foot rubs.) It should be slow with people just coming in, so it's a good time to consult me for help in setting intentions before the con!

Saturday, I teach in the morning, sign books in the afternoon, and Saturday night I am attending the Llewellyn book launch party...until something shiny draws me away.

I plan to inhabit the bar if it's open, or anything close to coffee during slow periods of time. Looking forward to meeting friendly #pagan #witchy and #conjure folks from the Bay and beyond!

The book I authored, Sabbat Essentials: Samhain came out yesterday.  It spent a little time at #1 in the Comparative Religions category  on Amazon and is in the top 10 (shifts fast) in the Witchcraft category. Not bad for 12 months of brain-breaking detailed work. #pagan #writing #witchcraft #publishing

Story
Tagline
Witchcraft writer and pro tarot reader. More about the guidance than the straight face.
Introduction
Writer. Blogger. Out of the Wiccan broom closet whether I like it or not. There is no party with which I'm involved that has a line that goes anywhere near my toes.

Published Book: Divorcing a Real Witch: for Pagans and the people that used to love them. Published by Moon Books, 2014. 

Want to see what else I've done? Visit my published works list.

Artist's Way
Also, I am very much involved with the works of Julia Cameron. She is, for lack of a better comparison, my Oprah Winfrey. I have spent since 2008 working through her Artist's Way book series and it has made a wonderful difference in my creative production as well as in the rest of my life.

A few other points:
  • I am neither elitist nor lowbrow.
  • I am 15 years behind on my reading, at the very least.
  • My two most notable fandom/geekouts belong to Daria and Doctor Who.
  • I have a life partner. He has his own stuff going on.
  • My orientation is...tricky. (Not yet recognized?)
  • I am an ally to LGBT rights, women's rights, human rights, and generally making an effort.
  • I am a feminist. Not post, not pre. Right NOW. Because the world needs me to be one, and I'm doing it for myself.
  • Yes, I AM Pagan. No, I do NOT: camp, enjoy JRR Tolkien or related works, see anything praiseworthy or worthy of criticism in being a Luddite, hate Christians or atheists, consider men "the enemy," collect crystals, collect cats or other pets, and when I do wear patchouli I'm extraordinarily picky about its quality and sourcing. I also stopped being a hippie when I discovered Oxford heels.
