Can you tell us a little about the spiritual path you follow?
I am a HP of Inclusive Wicca but since doing that I have met lots of pagans with different paths and I find them all fascinating and similar in beliefs so I guess I would call myself an eclectic pagan now.

Which is your favourite time of the year and especially what Sabbat (feast day) resonates with you the most?
I look forward to all of them but I think Yule and Beltane would be my favourites.
Why? My birthday is at Yule so I’ve always loved that time of year and I enjoy the watching our wild winter weather while snuggling up by the fire.
I also love Beltane as I’m looking forward to the warmer weather by then and I really enjoy dancing the maypole.

Which moot do you most regularly attend and is there another moot you would like to visit?
Hobart but I would like to visit the others if I’m near when they have their moot.

First Pagan styled gift you ever received?
A book on Wicca from a lady I worked with.

What would be the most unusual ritual tool you’ve used?
A small branch off a birch tree for a wand.
Why? I performed a wedding in the north of the state and left mine at home.

Mead or Mulled wine or Mulberry juice?

What would be most used crystal/herb in your collection/garden is? Why?
Probably Amethyst. I have it all over the house to cleanse any negative energy and I love the colour.

Do you have a recent pagan interest/activity? Or an event or workshop attended?
I am currently interested and learning more about Traditional Witchcraft.

Favourite movie of all time?
Eragon. Saphira is my favourite dragon of all the movies I’ve seen.

When you discovered/decided your were ‘pagan’ who was the first person you told?
I can’t remember who I told first but no-one was surprised as I’ve always been interested in ‘pagan’ things.

And what was their response?
Most are interested to know more but I’ve had one or two friends worry and tell me to be careful but they are still friends 🙂

From all our Ravens’ Call articles, which one do you enjoy the most?
It’s hard to pick one, I enjoy it all but I do like the Tassie Pagan Profiles and articles written by members.

And if we opened a new column what topic should it be?
I’d like to read more about different pagan paths.

Skyclad, robed, casual or super dressy?
Usually robed but at home I usually go casual.

If you could give one piece of good advice, what would it be?
Life is too short; enjoy your days, laugh at every chance, cry only if you must, and never let others bring you down.
