A Witch's Kitchen

Published by Capall Bann

A Witches Kitchen forms a lively blend of everyday and magical information. It's focus is real, practical witchcraft. The book is well grounded in myth and tradition. Including topics such as herb lore, understanding plant spirits and consulting plant oracles. Val talks of spinning, weaving and using natural dyes. As well as food, drink and homemade lotions and potions. These personal and often humorous accounts give a true feel of life for the modern witch. With her optimistic outlook, Val encourages and inspires all those exploring the craft.

Of Chalk & Flint

a way of Norfolk Magic

Published by Troy Books

Of Chalk and Flint: A Way of Norfolk Magic is a celebration of the county of Norfolk and its Nameless Tradition of magic and witchcraft. The spiritual energy which informs and powers this magic wells up from the land itself and from the Chalk and Flint which have shaped the landscape, its flora, its fauna, its culture and its history. While the book is focused on Norfolk, the principles of the magic explored here are applicable anywhere in in the world. Thus, this book provides a valuable resource for anyone seeking insights into natural magic, witchcraft and working with the power of the land.

Columns & Articles

Over the years, I have written numerous articles for various witchy/occult and magical publications.

I first started a regular column about herbal medicine and magic for Pagan Dawn, in 2014, and have managed to produce one for every quarterly issue since then.

For Quest, I have been writing articles for much longer, and I cannot even remember when my Short Notes from Norfolk column began.

I have also written a number of articles for The Cauldron, although that magazine sadly ceased publication in 2015, on the death of its editor, Michael Howard.
