“Come little children, I’ll take thee away, into a land of Enchantment. Come little children, the time’s come to play, here in my garden of magic.”Sarah Sanderson in Hocus Pocus
I’m a witch and a mother of two children who found it incredibly difficult to find children’s books that centered around anything magical, witchy or pagan. I have read my fair share of children’s books over the years – both good and bad – and I decided it was time for a change. I have been a writer since childhood. I thought it only natural to combine my two loves, magick and writing, into a series for children.
I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. I’ve always loved writing fiction. I always loved being able to weave a story that surprises and excites the imagination. My house is loaded with books – bookshelves, big piles of books, short stacks of books. We have our occult library in a prominent place in our home.
According to my mother, I come from a long line of witches. I have always had a strong affinity for tarot cards and divination in general. I started working with the tarot when I was about 13. I am drawn to the moon on so many levels. I am not long into my witch journey so I’m very much a ‘Little Witch’ at heart.
I developed the idea for this book series after struggling to find books that spoke to my beliefs, showed a diverse collection of characters and concepts and showed witches in a whimsical but powerful way. I am sick of seeing witches depicted as monsters to be feared or fodder for Halloween books.
I’m hoping this blog will be a good place to drum up excitement about the new book series and answer any questions along the way.
Hope to chat more with you as the journey continues…
