Thank You for a Magickal Weekend

Hello my friends, how are you? Today I am preparing to catch up with some work, and I am currently enjoying a week away from home and staying with my Mum. Don't you just love going back home? It is great to catch up with friends and family that you haven't seen for ages, and those memories and new stories offer up some great literary fodder for creative endeavors.

This weekend has been very magickal for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Rosemary Douglas mind, body and spirit event in Stafford. I got to know some of my fellow spiritual seekers a little better, I soaked in the atmosphere and energy of the Spiritualist church where we held the event, and I got to play my didgeridoo! It was wonderful to meet some new friends as well. Did you get your free book yet? No? Well, sign up now and I will send it to you. Enjoy!

Welcome to the #AtoZChallenge 2016

Phew! We made it to the end of another term at school, and I for one am very glad to have a couple of weeks to recover from the daily challenge of the school run. My daughter received her second certificate for 100% attendance at school this week, and I am taking that as a personal win because I was the one who got her there, every day without fail, with the toddler and the dog in tow. It was tough, but we did it!
This weekend I am looking forward to some spiritual adventures at the Rosemary Douglas Mind, Body and Spirit event in Stafford. Come and see me if you are in the Staffordshire and West Midlands vicinity. I am talking about my Redcliffe novels series and my upcoming release The Vampire of Blackpool, as well as sharing stories of my ghost hunting adventures and my life as the pagan housewife.
And then we have the annual A to Z blogging challenge. It has taken me a bit by surprise this year, although I did remember to sign up a little earlier than I usually do. My theme for the #AtoZChallenge 2016 is, quite simply, all about me. You see I had a little identity crisis a while back, and I realised that my blog needed some direction. So I called myself the pagan housewife. If reflects a little bit of everything that makes up SpookyMrsGreen: author, mother, ghost hunter, pagan, wife and everything else in between.
Come and join me throughout April as I share stories, snippets and anecdotes. I might throw in a Tarot reading, or an Angel card reading. I might share some photographs from my adventures in the natural world in the North West of England. I might talk about my children and my family. Who knows? There is a lot to discuss. See you later, and have a fabulous Easter Weekend!

Have Your #Spiritual Healing in Stafford this #Easter

I have a busy couple of weeks lined up. First off I will be appearing at the newly refurbished Sandbach Library at their “Meet the Authors” event on Wednesday 16th March. Then I have family time arranged for the following weekend, and then my children finish school for the Easter holidays. And then you can come and see me at Stafford!

Our next mind, body and spirit event is at the Arthur Findlay Centre in Stafford on Easter weekend. I will be there to talk about my work as the pagan housewife, and my journey to becoming a published author and solopreneur. You can ask me all about writing, getting published, how to get started, or even about the ghosts I have seen that helped fuel my imagination for the books…

Of course, I will not be alone. There are many fabulous people for you to meet, including fellow authors Christopher Gilmore and Stephanie J. King, international medium Janey Hitchcock, the house dowser Chris Quartermaine, and a vast array of stalls offering crystals, spiritual healing, alternative health remedies, beautiful arts and crafts, and much more.

Happy #WorldBookDay Everyone!

Every day is #WorldBookDay in our house. It's a fact. We have books strewn all over the place, and my daughters have adopted my habit of falling asleep with books in their beds... what can I say, they take after their mother! I find it incredibly hard to accept that there is such a problem with literacy in the world, but apparently that is a fact. I have grown up surrounded by books.

Most of my childhood photos show me holding a book, reading a book, or with a book somewhere nearby. Books are simply a way of life; a habit. My daughters know that the best way to get my attention is to put a book in front of me, and I will stop what I am doing and read to them. We love story-time. We love books!

Join my tribe today, and I will send you a fabulous FREE book to get you started… (be warned, my vampires do not sparkle, and my wolves will bite!)
