About meJust an old-fashioned occult generalist with enough library to insulate the house. I'm originally from Chicago, but I've lived all over the US. In the early '90s, I owned my own metaphysical bookstore in Peoria, Illinois (please, no "played in Peoria" jokes; I've heard them all.) In 2007, I published my first book, co-authored with my fourth husband, LT Author Isaac Bonewits, who passed away in 2010. I'm still cataloging the books from his extensive library. Want to buy any of them?

About my libraryI guesstimate our library is 80-90% cataloged. All items I physically possess (and have cataloged--keep finding more...) is in the collection "Your Library." I'm slowing divesting much of the library as I need to lighten my load of physical possessions. Two cross-country moves in less than two years will do that to your priorities.

All items listed in the Collection PEIB will be copied or moved to Isaac's account to create his Legacy Library. See and Items in that account in the "Your library" collection are still in my possession. Other items have been sold or donated. Some have been given to the Davidson Library at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), where they can be found in the American Religions Special Collection, which also holds the Isaac Bonewits Papers.
