In which I talk about rather a lot of writing–past, present…and sooner or later, I’ll get around to the future.

Coming soon: My book of Earth rituals is now in process–Earth Works: Ceremonies for a Changing Planet–published by Smith Bridge Press.

Available from Asphodel Press, this little devotional includes my “Rituals as The Serpent Uncoils”, a praise-song to Inanna, in exchange for rain.  You can order it through their website at www.asphodelpress.com

I’m part of the stable of writers for Hoodoo and Conjure Quarterly, available through Amazon or through the publisher Planet Voodoo. Here are more places to find my writings:

I’m From Here


I began my writing life as a playwright and have several scripts available.  These plays have been produced and the rough edges smoothed out.  Some are original and some are adaptations of folklore and world literature.  They include 

  • The Odyssey
  • Beowulf
  • MotherSongs: the Story of Witchcraft from the Paleolithic to the Present
  • The Burning Times: a Study of the Continuing Inquisition
  • Carolina Folk Tales: Haints and Boogers
  • The Blue Bird (an adaptation of the Maeterlinck classic)
  • Three Sisters (an adaptation of Chekhov’s work)
  • Moby-Dick
  • Leviticus: the Fifth Book of Moses

Essays and Articles:


  • Which Witch is Which by Patricia Telesco (Essay on Mixed-Gender Dianic Wicca)
  • Women’s Voices in Magic, edited by Brandy Williams  “Cove Witches and Curanderas”
