Moon Song is a love and ghost story. Journalist and musician, Isoldé Labeale, flees a London that, after "nine-eleven", is becoming as oppressive as the Belfast of the Troubles in which she grew up. She goes to the West Country to work with an old lover and meets the international concert organist, Mark King. They fall in love. Isoldé goes to live with him at his Cornish home, Caergollo, and discovers that Mark is the adopted brother of her hero, the late Celtic folk singer Tristan Talorc, now dead. She meets the Woodfolk of Nectan's Kieve who tell her Tristan died too soon, without finishing his last song. The Woodfolk need the song and ask Isoldé to find it. The search brings conflicts between her and Mark ... but she has to find it, and Mark has to help.
Elen Sentier is an awenydd, spirit keeper and cyfarwydd (storyteller) from a long family lineage in the British native tradition. Her mother's mother was a witch from the Isle of Mann and her father came from a family of cunning men. She spent much of her childhood with family in the wilds of Dartmoor and Exmoor learning the old ways. One of her uncles could call a wild falcon down to his fist or sit with an adder twined around his wrist; another could carry a ball of swarmed bees in his bare hands. The next-door neighbour was the village midwife and healer who also did the laying out of the dead; she taught Elen herb lore, healing and lyke-lore (the ways of the dead).
After leaving university Elen worked for many years in the Ministry of Defence first as a finance officer and then a computer systems designer. After a long and successful career with the MOD she changed horses to train with Ian Gordon-Brown and Barbara Somers and developed a flourishing practice for 10 years in London as a transpersonal psychotherapist. During all this time she still walked the shaman path and made many friends such as C Maxwell Cade, Rose Gladden, Colin Bloy, Paul Devereux, Michael Poynder, Tom Graves, Hamish Miller, Vicky Wall, Theo Gimbel, Lilla Bek, Caitlin and John Matthews. She also studied Alice Bailey's work for ten years with the Lucis Trust.
She now lives with her husband, cats and a host of wildlife in a lovely farmhouse in the back of beyond by the river Wye in the Welsh Marches, where she writes and teaches the ways of the awenydd, the British shamanic tradition.
