I was born on Dartmoor and grew up on Exmoor; my parents, family and the old ones in the villages where I grew up led me into the old ways of Britain. My mother's mother was a witch from the Isle of Man, and my father was a cyfarwydd (taleweaver) and awenydd (British shaman) who lived in Devon, so I was born into an old family of cunning folk. I pass on the old ways through writing books on British native shamanism and in magic/mystery/romance novels; I also offer training in the old British ways.
I’m a wilderness woman at heart, couldn’t cope with living in a village let alone a town or city, so I live with my cats, husband and a host of wildlife in the back of beyond in the Welsh Marches. It’s a magical twilight place, between two countries and between two worlds.
