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.

That Ol' Devil Tune

Check it out! I am so flattered and honored, not to mention crippled with laughter, to be included in the Doors listing here.

However, I'm not "a devout Wiccan witch". Though I am certainly devout, I'm a devout Celtic Pagan priestess.

I just LOVE it that the thing that gets the Doors on the list is ME! What about "Mother, I want to..."??

And I never played with the Doors, either, so I really shouldn't be there except by association. What, you didn't catch me sitting in with them on tambourine and tuba? At the same time??

Or perhaps they think Jim and I are the same person: so hard to tell those longhaired boys from those longhaired girls...

And don't miss Jimmy Page and his Satanic decorator!

Remember, people: Men of science walked on the moon; men of faith stole airplanes and flew them into buildings.

Never forget.
