Hello, and welcome to my website.
I'm a Druid author, speaker, workshop leader and celebrant.
Find all information about my books on the book extract pages, and just email if you can't find what you want, or would like a list /info about my talk/workshop titles, to touchstone[at]druidry[dot]org -
I've worked with many groups, from enclosed Druid events to the
Brownies! Probably the most accessible general explanatory talk which I
give to many groups is 'Living Druidry; nature as teacher.'
Book news: My latest book now has an official title -
The Wisdom of Birch, Oak and Yew:
connect to the magic of trees for guidance and transformation
Llewellyn Worldwide, who've provided this great 'birch bark' cover, will publish this in April 2015
I've added a talk on the subject of this book, so if you want pointers on accessing the wisdom of the trees in your life, get a few people together and book me for a talk.
And a recent light-bulb moment has turned into the beginnings of a brand new book. Exciting times!
Latest Druid detective mystery now available!
Do not be fooled into thinking that this is just a cracking good magical adventure: following the example of the great occult writers, I've incorporated Druid teachings and wisdom, for those who have eyes to see...
The Case of the Cornish Patsy:
a Gwion Dubh, Druid Investigator adventure
about living lightly - and that includes lightness of spirit!
If you believe that spirituality is not only vitally important but should also
be full of life, love and laughter, then the Druid Detective books, with their
cracking adventures and laced with Druid wisdom and understanding of a
magically lived life, might just be for you.
ĎIt was a dark night in the forest that never sleeps...' yes, that fabulous Druid Private Eye, Gwion Dubh (pronouce it Duv), has just
wrapped up another case, and advance readers say itís the most exciting
yet. See the
world through the eyes of a practising Druid as Gwion, robed and ready, is
called once again to maintain the ancient harmonies.
Sent to magical Cornwall, he becomes implicated in human affairs and is marked
man. As he acquires an entourage including girls, geese, giants and a
fanatical geography teacher, he begins to realise that the Land itself is in peril
- and where is Britainís ancient protector?
Gwionís crazy circus will traverse the length of the peninsula before the final
showdown with the forces of evil, on May Day Morn.

Gwionís first adventures:
Gwion Dubh, druid investigator, delves into the bright-dark doings of certain
faery-human relations. A tale for all in search of Genius Loci, Totem Trees,
shamanic enlightenment or the lost leafmould of Iolo Morgannwg. Druidic drollery
at its most flamboyant. I laughed to the point of metempsychosis.
