I love to write books about alternative religion, occult, and spirituality. My books are written for everyone in an easy to read and understandable style. Some of my other titles available on Amazon (and various other book retailers) are ” Wicca. The Practitioner’s Introductory Guide” (ISBN 978-1-941070-13-0) – ” Paganism” (ISBN 978-1-941070-43-7) and “Demonology: Sorting Fact From Fiction: A Field Guide Of Demons In Christianity” (ISBN 978-1-941070-31-4) …. and many more to come! Many of my titles are also available for Kindle on Amazon and as digital eBooks from various online retailers.

Santeria for Beginners. A Brief Beginners Guide to Santeria History, Practices, Deities, Spells and Rituals


"A great starting place for anyone interested in Paganism in general or are just starting out on the Pagan path. This little gem of a book introduces you to the tools and pantheons used within general Paganism and Witchcraft/Druidry. Not for the advanced practitioner but definitely a wonderful resource for the Seeker!"


on Paganism: An Introductory Guide

"This book is true to its title and I highly recommend it as an introductory guide to Wicca. These is simply a ton of useful and insightful information in a concise manner. If you are new to Wicca or still “figuring it all out” this is a must read. Covers was most intro guides cover but offers much more too. I particularly found the chapter on the ethics and principles of Wicca to be amazing and not easily found in other books I have purchased. Equally praised are the chapters on Modern Wicca and The Wiccan Deities. This should be on the bookshelf of all practitioners or curious."

on Wicca: The Practitioner’s Introductory Guide.

"The author gets right to the point. After a brief history of the tarot the meaning of each card is explained. She doesn’t bog down the reader with symbolism until she gets to the end of the book and gives an “exercise” of how to read a card. She gives the 2 most popular layouts with a brief explanation of each. As a starting reference, this book is a quick read and gives the beginner a good place to start"

"This was an informative book and an easy read. I learned quite a bit and was inspired to further research Santeria and other related religious traditions."

Casting a Circle

Each time you work magick, you should cast a circle to contain any undirected energies, to concentrate your own energies, and to protect yourself from energies outside the circle. Since the circle is actually a sphere, it’s best to think of it as a “bubble.” It surrounds you on all sides.

You can do this by imaging a flowing white light forming a cocoon around the space or imagine filaments of a protective magick web forming. Use whatever image works best for you and completes the picture of an all-encompassing sphere.
