I'm a mother, an artist, and a witch. I am a freelance writer - Magical Musings Freelance Writing Services - and I am passionate about all things witchy! I'm a devotee of the Morrigan and Lugh, two heroic Celtic gods. My passion is writing about things that will help others, writing about things that have helped me. I have come a long way in the past year - never underestimate the effects of domestic abuse. When the abuser is gone one does not just go back to their old life. Being abused changes you to the core, as it did me. Witchcraft, Paganism, dear friends, and hard work have brought me to the point where I can confidently say I am happy, whole, and the Sovereign of my life. As a priestess I hope to confer sovereignty and unity to others. Blessed Be!
