Vinegar infused with a variety of herbs makes a wonderful addition to your health regime. The word vinegar comes from the French vin aigre, which means “sour wine.” When air is exposed to fermented liquid, bacterial activity occurs and the result is acetic acid or sour vinegar. These are different from culinary vinegar in that […]
How to Write a Non-fiction Book Proposal
(That may be the longest title I’ve ever written for a blog post.) If you want to place your book with traditional publishers you do not just send them your manuscript. While there is a tiny possibility they will accept it directly, it is nearly impossible. Sending it directly subjects you to a high likelihood […]
A Bit of a Tease
Tonight, in just a few hours, I record the last podcast in the publicity push for A Witch’s Guide to Crafting A Practice. That will be the last of eleven podcasts total (whew!), all of which were a lot of fun. Last night I finished the second of my two participations in the Changing Times, […]
Last year, in the light of the moon peering through the towering pines behind my house, I offered myself up to Deity in a ritual I have done every year since 1980. I pledged myself then, and renew that vow in recognition of Their regard of, and for, me. In my spiritual tradition, this is […]

A box of incense with a flat ceramic holder tucked in the corner stood in for […]
My first podcast!
A few weeks ago I sat down with the effervescent and wise Patti Negri, The Witch of Hollywood, for her podcast, The Witching Hour. It was my first time (although I’d done a couple of radio interviews waaaaay back when The Virtual Pagan published). It was a ton of fun, and I think we shared […]
Talking in the Dark
