Then began I to wax in wisdom,
One word led on to another word,
One work led on to another work.
My first novel was published in 1981. In 1982 I was consecrated as a pagan priestess. One way or another, I’ve been following both paths ever since. On this site you’ll find information on what I’ve done and what I’m doing, with links and resources to find out more.
- “Writing” will take you to information about both my non-fiction work and my novels and stories.
- “Community” has news about projects in the pagan and heathen communities.
- The calendar shows when I’ll be attending conventions and festivals, and doing radio interviews and book signings.
If you have a comment or a query, or there’s something I haven’t covered that you’d like to know, please get in touch. I’ll try to update regularly and answer your questions.
The Wolf and the Raven hunt again!
I am delighted to announce that The Wolf and the Raven, first novel in the Wodan’s Children trilogy, is available once more! This is the book that explains how the lives of Brunahild and Gudrun, Sigfrid and Gundohar, first become entwined. We meet them first as children, and learn what experiences make them the people who will do the deeds that became one of the greatest European legends.Here we learn how Sigfrid reforged his father’s sword, and the true nature of the dragon he is destined to kill. Meanwhile, Brunahild is being trained as a valkyrie in the hills above the Rhine and learning the secrets of Germanic magic. Wodan (Odin) also appears, subtly nudging his children in the direction Wyrd needs them to go.

|“Fire Song”, in Elementary: All-New Tales of the Elemental Masters, edited by Mercedes Lackey, DAW 2013. This is my second story for this anthology series. In this one, X has to flee a revolution in Cumae with her young son, her parents, and two boys. Their escape lands them in the Campi Phlegrei, where the land itself is turning to fire. I’ve been to Naples, but I had never been to the caldera. Fortunately, YouTube videos from tourists who did get there, plus a lot of fun with GoogleEarth, let me do everything but smell the sulfur as I wrote the story.|
|“A Song of the Sea”, in Elemental Magic, edited by Mercedes Lackey, published by DAW Books. This is an anthology of stories inspired by Lackey’s “elemental” series. I chose the option of going back to the 4th century BCE, when Pythagorean philosophers were coming up with the theory of the Four Elements, and tell the story of a water mage who encounters the Sirens.|
