Hi all and thank you so much for coming along to the workshop, really good to spend time with you all. As promised here’s a few notes for you to take from today’s session. More »

The Witching Path, my first published book, was launched in 2007 with as much fanfare and publicity as a glass of flat lemonade at your grandmother’s 85th birthday party. The book sold fairly well for a debut from an unknown author and I had a run of feature articles in prestigious, glossy new age magazines following that over the next few years and then… nothing. My circumstances changed dramatically and neither time nor situation allowed me to do much in the way of writing for some time.

Now I have had two new books released in the space of five weeks. I’m swamped with congratulations – and with people telling me how ‘lucky’ I am.

Oh no. Lucky? I wish! But luck had nothing at all to do with it. More »
