I have been practicing Witchcraft for the majority of my life, with my interest in Witches beginning roughly at the age of 5.

Looking back on my childhood, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t identify as a Witch, or at least as having a connection to magic.

I am a big fan of anything ecstatic and anything that involves dancing, so I was very excited. It… Read more

Last Spring, I was approached by my good friend Maggie of WitchandMoon and asked if I’d like to collaborate with her on an oracle deck. The proposed theme of this deck would be Traditional Witchcraft, with each card depicting a different concept taken from history and folklore. Being both a long time fan of Maggie’s artwork and incredibly intrigued by the idea of a Trad Craft oracle deck, I eagerly came aboard as the writer for this project. And now, almost… Read more
