I get asked a lot if I’m a witch, especially by people who’ve read The Kingston Chronicles. Today I want to talk a bit about real life witchcraft and the realism presented in The Kingston Chronicles. The witches of The Kingston Chronicles can do some pretty awesome stuff. From conjuring orbs to astral projection, fromContinue reading “Witchcraft and The Kingston Chronicles”
It’s the time of year when we tend to reflect on what we have accomplished in the last twelve months, and what we wish to accomplish in the coming twelve months. I used to be a firm believer in setting New Years resolutions but, like many people, even with the best intentions, I rarely everContinue reading “2019 Goal Setting”
Yesterday was Litha! I’ve been busy editing, so I didn’t really celebrate much. How did you celebrate? I wanted to hit the beach with the Man Beast and the dogs, but the Man Beast was working flat out so we didn’t make it. I also got lost down a rabbit hole researching early American WitchContinue reading “Litha”

I remember it clearly, partly, because it’s attached to another memory I have that happened in that bookstore. I was seven and itContinue reading “The First”
This is my favourite time of year. I celebrate Halloween and Beltaine at this time of year. Halloween is my favourite calendar holiday of all time. The spirit of fun and whimsy surrounding it just calls to me. If you read my post last Halloween you’ll remember that I differentiate Halloween from Samhain. Halloween toContinue reading “This is my Favourite Time of Year”
Have you read The Kingston Chronicles and wondered which character you’re most like? Now you can take a short quiz and find out! https://uquiz.com/iGpB4b I’m still trying to figure out how to embed the widget in the side panel on my page. For some reason copying and pasting html never works for me…
It should come as no shock to you that I’ve been working really hard on the sequel to The Kingston Chronicles; Samhain Sorcery. My goal was to launch it this Halloween (for the Northern Hemisphere Samhain/Halloween) but realistically there is no way I can have the manuscript finished in, and published, in time. I’m workingContinue reading “Samhain Sorcery Cover Reveal”
