Born in 1964, my grandmother awoke the craft in me, opening my eyes and ways to the many paths of witchcraft. However, I do not class myself as a hereditary witch. I was always encouraged to be eclectic, to work many paths and traditions, keeping what worked for me, and putting to the side what was not suited. This also bought about my base for experimental magick.
I did my fi rst necromantic rite when I was sixteen. Since then, I have had various teachers guide me but at the same time not teaching me what I was not yet ready for. I have been very fortunate to come across such a vast array of willing and talented people.
I have been a high priestess for about eight years and have been very fortunate to have such a wonderful coven to work with, and that they also are willing to participate in some of my experiments.
Through adversity we grow. Although I would not like to see people go through what I have been through, I know a lot of people have gone through their own adversities. Black magick has been a part of me and what I practice , but it is not the only part of me. I believe in balance, and while I tend toward the dark side, I know the light side as well.
