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. Thank you for the article. Always interesting reading about such things. It can end up being a confusing subject. Paganism is a huge umbrella to shelter under. I know many who practice magic but aren’t witches – those practicing ceremonial magic for example. That would take up a whole book.

    1. I consider myself a Pagan Buddhist, intermingling the two beliefs. I haven’t performed any real magic yet, other than some healing on my husband. It worked! I’m interested in spell work and hope to move into that arena soon. But, I’m rather eclectic in my beliefs feeling truth in many different ways. As far as I’m concerned, it’s all good. ❤️🔮💜🧚‍♀️

      1. Yeah, I consider myself quite eclectic too. I like to read a lot of Wicca books, but I don’t follow the strict guidelines of Wicca. I also have a love for Buddhism and fairies! If you get a chance, come by my blog 🙂

  2. I love the break down of the terms. There is so much grey area and a lot to cover. I identify as a witch and a pagan myself. It’s nice to see articles like this that are shared.
