Sounds of Time

Words and the world passing by; how it sings to me; how I clamour back.

Books I have contributed to:

Pagan Planet: Being, Believing and Belonging in the 21st Century (2016, Moon Books). What does it mean to live as a Pagan in this uncertain world of climate change, economic hardship and worldwide social injustice? What does it mean to hold nature as sacred when ravaging the land is commonplace? How do we live our Paganism in our families and homes, our communities and countries? My chapter covers respect, and often the lack of it when non-pagans are faced with aspects of life they don’t or won’t understand.

Paganism 101: An Introduction to Paganism by 101 Pagans (2014, Moon Books). Paganism 101 is an introduction to Paganism written by 101 Pagans. Grouped into three main sections, Who we are, What we believe and What we do, twenty topics fundamental to the understanding of the main Pagan traditions are each introduced by essay and then elaborated upon by other followers and practitioners, giving the reader a greater flavor of the variety and diversity that Paganism offers. I wrote the lead chapter on the often tricky subject of ‘Afterlife’, exploring the diverse traditions differing pagans hold.

Essays in Contemporary Paganism (2013, Moon Books). In this absorbing anthology twelve Pagan writers from across the globe offer a unique perspective on Paganism today in both its theoretical and practical aspects. My essay covers an introduction to Celtic inspiration in modern paganism, and was the forerunner to my first full volume, A Modern Celt.
