Currently a resident of Montreal, Canada, Arin works as a freelance writer and editor. She is the author of several popular books on witchcraft and nature-based spirituality, including The Green Witch, The House Witch, Spellcrafting, Protection Spells, The Witch’s Book of Self-Care, The Green Witch’s Grimoire, and The Green Witch’s Garden.

Her area of focus is incorporating nature-based spirituality into everyday life. Arin looks to give you a variety of different ideas to inspire you and make you think, and encourages you to use what resonates with you as the basis for formulating your own practice.

Arin identifies as pagan and a witch. She is a third-degree High Priestess in the Black Forest Clan, a tradition linked both by lineage and practice to several other branches of thought and philosophy including the Caledonii Tradition, Druidism, Gardnerian practice, Seax-Wicca, general Celtic-informed practice, and German witchcraft. She works as a priestess in her community performing rites of passage and giving occasional workshops, and leads a private coven.

Her hobbies include playing the cello and handspinning.

Intuitive solutions for better results

One of the joys of ongoing study is that there are always new books coming out that can help you further develop nascent ideas, try new techniques, or lead you to rethink beliefs. In the almost twenty years that I’ve been writing, there have been some terrific books produced by excellent authors.

If you want to read more about a topic, a good place to start is always the bibliography of whichever of my books you’ve just read. This page lists books I find useful. Some of them date back from when I started, and some of them are very new releases. All of them have something to offer a reader of any level of experience.
