Litha, or Midsummer, is one of the four solar festivals observed by many Wiccan and Pagan traditions on June 21st. Litha is an ancient Solar celebration when the sun reaches its zenith in the sky. It is the longest day of the year and the point at which the sun seems to just hang there without moving – in fact, the word “solstice” is from the Latin word solstitium, which literally translates to “sun stands still.” Stone circles such as Stonehenge were oriented to highlight the rising of the sun on the day of the summer solstice.

The Irish Gypsy's Parlor allows me to stretch out as an author of paranormal using my heritage as both a gypsy and my family's history of Wicca. I can trace my family on both sides from the wandering gypsies across Europe to the Irish Wiccans who came to Massachusetts. There is something very comforting in knowing where you come from and where you're going. After three decades of serving my country, working in an operating room and traveling extensively...I've found my niche. I will share everything from the family Book of Shadows to the old Gypsy sayings, tarot readings and spells. Enjoy the paranormal novel excerpts, the ambiance and remember...And ye harm no one...do what ye will...
