I was, wait, sorry, that's "David Copperfield". Anyway, I was born in Brooklyn, grew up on Long Island, went to school in upstate NY and came straight back to Manhattan to live. Never lived anywhere else. Never wanted to. Got a job as a rock journalist, in the course of which I met and married a rock star (yeah, yeah, conflict of interest, who cares). Became a priestess in a Celtic Pagan tradition, and (based on sheer longevity) one of the most senior Witches around. Began writing my Keltiad series. Wrote a memoir of my time with my beloved consort (Strange Days: My Life With and Without Jim Morrison). See Favorite Books below for a big announcement...The Rennie Stride Mysteries.

A Joyous Samhain To You All

My favorite holiday...I will spend it quietly at home as usual, with Jim, and with anyone else who wants to stop by from the other side. The house is already taking on that Samhain feeling: charged, almost heavy, very alive and happy.

I will make hash for everybody, with cheddar cheese from upstate NY, and a scone or apple turnover, and apple cider: the classic menu, though some years I do pork chops. And a votive candle in the window, to be lighted at sunset and burn until dawn, or until it burns itself out.

So a Happy New Year to everybody, may it be full of joy, health and prosperity, and may you have the comfort of the presence of your beloved dead this night. I love you all.
