Meet the Author

Edain became a self-initiated Witch in 1981 and has been an active part of the Pagan community since her formal initiation into a large San Antonio coven in 1983. Edain has researched alternative spiritualities since her teens, when she was first introduced to Kaballah, or Jewish mysticism. Since that time, she has studied a variety of magickal paths including Celtic, Appalachian folk magick, and Curanderismo, a Mexican-American folk tradition. Today, Edain is part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition, where she is a priestess of Brighid and an elder.

An alumnus of the University of Texas with a BA in history, she is affiliated with several professional writer's organizations and occasionally presents workshops on magickal topics or works individually with students who wish to study Witchcraft.

This former woodwind player for the Lynchburg (VA) Symphony claims both the infamous feuding McCoy family of Kentucky and Sir Roger Williams, the seventeeth-century religious dissenter, as branches on her ethnically diverse family tree. In her "real life," Edain works as a licensed stockbroker.

Edain is the author of fifteen books, including Bewitchments; Enchantments; and her most recent release, Ostara: Customs, Spells & Rituals for the Rites of Spring.

Read an Excerpt

Have you ever seen a faery? As you will discover in A Witch's Guide to Faery Folk by Edain McCoy, people all over the world have reported encounters with a race of tiny people, neither human nor divine, who live both inside and outside the physical human world. Our Pagan ancestors actually lived, worked, and worshiped with these elusive creatures on a regular basis.

In many instances today, Pagans let the faery people fill the role of elemental archetypes. Perhaps, they are called on, but only to witness rituals, not participate in them. A Witch's Guide to Faery Folk changes this forever.

This book shares two ways to contact the faery people. First, it shows you where and how to find them in our world. Second, it teaches you to use guided meditation to visit them in their world. Third, it describes how to work with them when casting spells and doing rituals.

A unique dictionary listing the names, lore, and characteristics of 230 faeries makes learning which ones to work with easy. Whether it is the Erdluitle (for weather work), Tomtra (to help raise a Cone of Power), or any of the others, this book will open new vistas for spiritual development and growth. Read it soon!

    Excellent book

    I have read this book more than a dozen times and it still amazes me. It gives you a complete guide to all types of faeries and even some you wouldn't expect. Santa Claus, mermaids, banshees, you name and it's in there.
