Colleen M. Chesebro loves writing speculative fiction and the sub-genres of fantasy and magical realism, other types of cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood – or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Fairy Whisperer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen lives in Colorado with her husband. When she is not writing, she enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. You can learn more about Colleen at www.colleenchesebro.com.

  1. A great post, sister. Thank you for sharing. I guess I’m half and half, some of my relatives know, the ones who like me practice, the friends who I hold dear know, but anyone else only knows when they need something and have been referred by trusted word of mouth. ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. I don’t practice the Craft but have friends who do. My path is of the ancient Egyptian tradition. Not many people know that, except now the people who read my blog. I think it’s still difficult to be totally open about such things. My friends who practice are either Craft or Old Craft (they’re quite private in their practice).

    Thank you for posting this.

    1. Oh, that’s interesting. I’m thrilled that you shared such a personal perspective. I consider myself a Pagan Buddhist, which is quite eclectic. The bottom line is that I do what works for me. Most people don’t understand or care to. That’s all right. I think we should be entitled to practice as we want. Big hugs to you Jan! ❤

      1. Totally agree that we should be entitled to practice as we want. Shamanism is also a big interest. I’m a reconstructionist where the ancient Egyptian tradition is concerned.
