Author Patti Wigington visits to discuss her latest book, "Candle Magic Journal and Handbook; A Guide to Performing Spells, Setting Intentions, and Recording Your Magical Practice". From the author's website - I began writing when I was seven. Since then, I’ve grown up (a little) and published a few books, a whole bunch of columns, and a few short stories. I can’t imagine Not Writing, and even when I’m bogged down with my full-time job (yes, I have one, and it’s not writing), I still need to spew words out onto the screen. I have to – if I don’t, I get cranky, and the voices in my head get louder. I’ve been practicing as a witch and a Pagan since about 1987ish, and in that time I’ve learned a lot. I’m the founder and high priestess of a local coven, I read Tarot for funsies, and am a licensed minister in my home state of Ohio. In addition to having a Real Grownup Job (with the world’s most patient boss), I spent thirteen years, from 2007 to 2020, as the host of the Paganism & Wicca pages on, which later became ThoughtCo and then LearnReligions. That led to a lot of opportunities, including speaking engagements and the chance to teach workshops, as well as the ability to write a few really cool books on witchy stuff. I’ve raised three children who are remarkably well-adjusted adults, despite their mother’s best efforts to turn them into very strange people, and I sometimes Tweet random things on Twitter. Come along and Stalk Me on Facebook, too!
