Jessica M. Starr is a witch and her magic is stories (she’s great at spelling). She lives in the shade of an oak tree, on the edge of a village in South Wales, UK, with her musician husband and their two unschooled children.
Jessica writes poems and prose for those who know that magic is real and that stories hold the power to change the world.
She also has a Youtube channel where she shares practical witchy wisdom for crafting a creative, magical life.
