From Celtic Immortal to a New Kind of Vampire.

From a young age my mother filled my childhood with magic, ideas of paganism, mysticism, faeries, old kingdoms, wizards and spirits. How did she do this? Books.

After some thought and having spoken to a few people about how to make this blog successful, I am now going to be posting regularly, every week on Fridays! Hopefully I will be able to bring posting up to twice a week, but at the moment, my free time is a little thinly spread. So,… Continue reading Where this blog is going…
