I grew up by the coast in Sydney, Australia, lost amongst the rocky cliffs between Balmoral Beach and Chinaman's Cove. I became a book addict very young.

All through my twenties I wrote, read tarot and did numerology; studied both my life's path, witchcraft, and everything Celtic. Well everything I could get my hands on really. I met anthropologist and author, Nevill Drury, during a stint at what was then Harper and Row and he was, apart from a very good friend, responsible for the publication, years later, of my first two books The Way of the Goddess in 1987 and The Way of Merlyn, 1990.

By the age of thirty two I had three children and lived off the grid in the highlands of Victoria with my coven.

In 1991, aged thirty nine I moved to Byron Bay. Bunjalung Country of the Arakwal People. I was reading and teaching tarot and within a year had formed another coven. I studied Hapkido, Aikido and Iaido. I also worked free weights at the gym and wrote Body Language, a handbook on nutrition and body-building.

Me then.



1992 - I also began organising events and productions, beginning with The Wild and Wise Women's Festival.

1996 - I worked with two others on a Celtic festival called Wearing of the Green Day.

It was a nobody pays, nobody profits day. A chance for the community to come together without having to think about the cost. Live bands from morning till night, food everywhere.

And Wings


We are in post-production of a documentary called Nobody

2013 - relocated to Melbourne and did post graduate work at Deakin for the year to freshen my writing.

2014 - published Comeuppance (short story, thriller) in The Crime Factory (page 101).

2015 - produced Priteni, the Decimation of the Ancient Britons, all about my own ancestors. The magic, lore, art and spirit of a people thought long gone. Turns out, because of a keen and dedicated genealogist, my family (and possibly yours) is related directly to one of the key players in this remarkable true story.

2016 - the end of a four year journey writing a memoir.


Oh, and because I gave up grains and sugar in 2014. I'm fit.

What am I passionate about? The art of clear communication, history, mythology, the legends of Irish and Celtic ancestry, debating with strong-willed, good-humoured people, all the wild things and all the wild places, the sea, the sea, the sea, and a sense of humour. I'm known to be rather outspoken on matters pertaining to the sustainability and guardianship of earth and the rights of all species to self-determination and I prefer the company of animals to most people.

I don't know what comes next.
