Rachel Patterson

Rachel is a witch, and has been for a very long time. Not the green skinned warty kind obviously... the real sort, but she is also a working wife and mother who has been lucky enough to write and have published a book or three. She loves to learn, she loves to study and has done so from books, online resources, schools and wonderful mentors over the years, but she has learnt the most from actually getting outside and doing it.

Rachel regularly gives talks to local pagan groups and co-runs open rituals and workshops run by the Kitchen Witch Coven. She also contributes articles regularly to the Pagan Dawn, Mystik Way and Spirit & Destiny magazines. As well as having regular blogs on Witches & Pagans and Patheos Pagan.

She is High Priestess of the Kitchen Witch Coven and an Elder at the online Kitchen Witch School of Natural Witchcraft.

Her craft is a combination of old religion witchcraft, wicca, kitchen witchery, green witchery and folkmagic. Rachel's heart is that of a Kitchen Witch.
