Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I am a practicing Strega, and a spiritual Poet of the Pagan variety.

My first book, The Goddess Book of Psalms, is a collection of spiritual poetry dedicated to the Goddess. The book is now available in soft cover. I’ve also published Devotions for the Witch, a daily prayer book for Italian witches, and includes a Litany of Martyrs of those who have suffered for their faith in Italy. I've completed a new translation of Charles Leland Godfrey's Aradia, titled Aradia: Gospel of the Witches, Retold. This book is a complete and corrected translation, a work begun in 1999 by Dr. Mario Pazzaglini. Witch Daze: a perennial pagan calendar is also available at the present time. This is a calendar in book format, with at least one event of a pagan nature for each and every day of the year, including leap year. I'm working on several other projects: a Pagan book of ritual recipes for the Sacred Meal, a witch's psalter, a collection of daily meditations from the Goddess and a Fairy Horoscope.

Excerpted from "The Goddess Book of Psalms"


They call me heathen; I accept their title with joy.
They call me pagan, for I am of the earth Herself.
They say I am infidel, but I believe in things beyond their ken.
They call me heretic, for I cannot accept their ways.
They call me idolater, but I adore the universe around me.
They say I am a perversion, but I am Hers who was here before they came,
and when they have gone, I will yet be Hers.

Special Edition of Leland's Aradia - and I'm in it!

The Witches Almanac has just printed an anniversary edition of Charles Godfrey Leland’s Aradia: Gospel of the Witches. It contains an introduction, written by Professor Robert Mathieson, and after the entire original text is presented, an appendix is included titled “Modern Perspectives on Aradia: Gospel of the Witches”. Many of today’s most knowledgeable authors are in this appendix, and I’m very proud to announce that I am among them! Each author presents their own view of Leland, and his… Continue

A new BookJournal is published!

I've just completed a Book Journal for publication. It's virtually a blank book, or, should I say, a book with blanks for you to fill in. The many pages include Books on Loan, Borrowed Books, Books on Order, and Wish List. The idea is to maintain a list of all the books you lend out to someone, the ones you borrow from someone (and that can include library books as well), the ones you ache to own, and those you've already ordered. There's also a section called My Favorite Books, in which you… Continue

Blogging, blogging, blogging....

It seems I'm so busy writing these days (and editing, and re-writing) that I have very little time for blogging. Add to that the fact that I keep forgetting where I parked my blog, and so I create a new one. So I have several blogs now, and it gets even tougher to keep up with them.


But enough about me!


Here's a bit of updating in case you wondered just what I've been up to these days:


I've now published six books, and I'm waiting for the art…

Ritual Nudity?

These three lines from Charles Godfrey Leland’s book, Aradia: Gospel of the Witches, have been quoted and misquoted for over one hundred years:

In the original Italian:

61. Sarete tutti nudi, per fino.

62. Che non sara morto l'ultimo

63. Degli oppressori e morto,

Leland’s translation of those lines:

61. Ye shall be naked in your rites,

62. this shall last until the last

63. of your oppressors shall be dead;

The actual translation of… Continue

Hi :-)


Writing Astrology For Witches, but got delayed by a short book for Avatar (the movie). I have been asked to write a book to help fans learn the language of the blue aliens (the "Na'vi"). That should take me until Feb, then I can resume work on A---For W----. Also the reinvention of the tarot is in its final stages after 19 years. I have a professional artist doing the finishing art for the deck, and that should be out in ... June? August?


So that's me. What are you up to?

Hi Patricia. Nice to hear from you! Illustrations? You mean the cards? I drew them in 1993, but also they were originally done in 3D with crystals and other elements. My CD graphics, I design and then my graphic artist makes them come alive. Is that what you meant? :-)

I see you have no trouble keeping busy, what with the multiple projects. Best of luck with your books.

I posted this in a Ning group over a month ago and have received NO reply, so I'm posting it again on the Wall, in the hope of reaching someone who will assist me.

I have found some pictures I want to include in a project I'm working on, and have contacted the artists. They want to know about my standard contract, and my payment concept. I don't have a standard anything, because I'm very new at this, and I don't know how the payment or royalty thing works between an author and an artist. Can anyone help me figure this out?
