The basic stuff: I am wife to Odin (since 2002). I practice Northern European-style folk magic (with some hoodoo/rootworking seasoning added in) and trance work, including both oracular and operational seidhr. As Odin’s wife, I am the chosen Queen of a small tribe of spirits who owe their allegiance to Him.
I live in the Pacific Northwest with my human partner (who is married to the Hellenic god Poseidon), a houseful of animals both living and dead, and three spinning wheels: a vintage Ashford Traditional, a purple Columbine production wheel, and a locally handmade Wee Wheel. In addition to Odin and Poseidon, our household honors Frigga, Bestla, Gunnlod, Bragi and Idunna, Bast (goddess of cats, of which we have…um, a few), various other personal spirits, and Queen Anne Boleyn. The latter has taken on the role of a Dis, or female ancestral guardian spirit/mentor, for me, and is the most prominent of a group of spirit friends and advisers I refer to as “the Queens.” Our household is essentially monastic (both of us being god-brides, we refer to it as “the Nunnery”), so although my partner and I both work outside the home due to necessity, there is no division between “life stuff” and “religious stuff” in our daily lives.
My personal obsessions include: handspinning and the fiber arts, crafting a number of other objects for devotional use (including candles, oils, and jewelry), reading, ethnobotany and magical and medicinal herbalism, cooking, meadmaking, walking in the woods and other wild places, wind storms, medieval and Tudor history, writing, shrine creation, and occasionally sewing.
I operate an Etsy store, Fensalir Fiber Art, offering my inspired and funky handspun yarn as well as an ever-changing assortment of arcane handmade goodies and spiritual tools.
Or you may want to check out my books: two collections of short stories and poetry written for and about my Beloved. You can take a look at them, and order them in print or electronic format if you wish, here.
I am also a featured blogger at PaganSquare (Witches and Pagans Magazine’s online blog), and you can visit my blog, Threads, here.
