Hello, and welcome to my website
I'm a Druid author, speaker, workshop leader and celebrant.
You will find all information about my books on the book extract pages.
If you would like a list or information about my talk and workshop titles, contact me at touchstone[at]druidry[dot]org
I've worked with many groups, from enclosed Druid events to University students and the
Brownies! Probably the most accessible general explanatory talk which I
give to many groups is 'Living Druidry; nature as teacher.'
Book news: my new book for Llewellyn worldwide was published in the spring. It's a guide to accessing the life-lessons of our wise and long lived mentors, the trees, and you can buy a signed copy direct from me (UK only) by paypal, via touchstone[at]druidry[dot]org or get it easily from the usual internet outlets or from Waterstones & other bookshops. If you'd like a quick read, got to the Llewellyn Worldwide site, find the book and just press 'browse'.
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.
I've also contributed a chapter to a book on 'The Ancestral Heart' along with such luminaries at Caitlin Matthews. That will be out around Samhain this year, so
More news on that later.
Latest on the Druid detective series...
This series is currently OUT OF PRINT and I am working on getting kindle versions out. Any enquiries from interested would-be readers would really help to keep this project cooking; it has been on the back burner for too long!
These cracking magical adventures follow the example of the great occult writers in incorporating occult practices and Druid teachings and wisdom, so they can serve as an introduction to the Druidic, animist, enspirited Celtic-inspired worldview as well as having you on the edge of your seats...
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.
