Author – Writer – Witch – Modern-Day Priestess
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been interested in spirituality, the occult and the mysteries of life (and beyond). I was that strange little girl lurking in the library with arms full of books on topics everyone else seemed to avoid.
I didn’t realise I was a witch until my late twenties. As life was busy imploding, my spirit found a kinship with witchcraft. We’ve bonded well ever since.
As a lifetime book nerd, it was only a matter of time before I put pen to paper and wrote my own books.
My first book, The Inner Goddess Revolution, was snapped up by O-Books and published in 2015.
I self published Goddess Rising in 2017. Apart from the final editing, I completed every step of the book publishing process myself. I created the cover, designed the interior, sourced my ISBN, created the ebook versions (epub) and, of course, wrote the book.
I’m also a holistic therapist (Reiki, hypnosis and all sorts) but I’m most passionate about EFT (emotional freedom technique). I’ve seen magic happen in front of my eyes with tapping: pains vanished, past-life traumas cleared, limiting beliefs banished and phobias disappeared. It’s powerful stuff.
These days, I combine my love of books with business coaching/mentoring at the Quiet Rebel Bureau. At the Quiet Rebel Bureau, you’ll find me helping mind-body-spirit authors to self-publish, designing or revamping websites (I’ve been doing this since the internet was a baby), writing, editing or helping small business find their soul or marketing groove in the world.
I’m a columnist at Patheos Pagan. Read and subscribe to ‘Away with the Witch‘.
I love to cook (and eat). I’ve been a vegetarian since 2009 but upped my game to a plant-based diet in 2015.
My superpower is unravelling knots. I will spend as long as it takes to unknot string, wool, chains, or whatever. I’m good at undoing figurative knots too.
I live on the south coast of England but part of my soul remains in London. My favourite tree is in Avebury and my favourite door is in Winchester. You do have a favourite door, right?

She’s the founder of the Inner Goddess Circle (an online group that ran for 6-years) and the creator of the Sea Whispers oracle.

She lives near the sea on the south coast of England with her family in a house heaving with books and a ridiculous amount of tarot decks.
