About meHiya :)

Yay, LibraryThing! There IS a God/dess out there! My bibliophile heart is joyful!


I'm a pagan and neoshaman living in Portland, OR with my husband, Taylor Ellwood, our cats Sun Ce and Ember, and more art supplies and books than we know what to do with--but this is hardly a bad thing.

We're both published authors; I've written "Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone: A Primal Guide to Animal Magic", "A Field Guide to Otherkin", "DIY Totemism: Your Personal Guide to Animal Totems", and I edited "Talking About the Elephant: An Anthology of Neopagan Perspectives on Cultural Appropriation". Taylor cowrote "Creating Magical Entities" and wrote on his own "Pop Culture Magick", "Space/Time Magic", "Inner Alchemy", and his newest, "Multi-Media Magic", as well as editing "Magick on the Edge: An Anthology of Experimental Occultism", "Manifesting Prosperity: A Wealth Magic Anthology", and "The Pop Culture Grimoire". We cowrote "Kink Magic: Sex Magic Beyond Vanilla".

When I'm not writing, I enjoy making ritual tools, jewelry, and other artwork out of leather, fur, feathers, bone, beads and other such things. I'm also, as you can probably guess, a voracious reader. I mostly read nonfiction, but I occasionally take a break and read novels or comic books.

I'm currently a graduate student working on a Master's in counseling psychology with an emphasis on ecopsychology. I am also a semi-professional book reviewer specializing in pagan and occult titles; you may see my reviews at .

You can find me online at , , (my book review blog), (shamanism blog) and (personal blog).

Beyond that...well..just ask :)

About my libraryThere's a whole mix of stuff in there--books about animals, books on magic and paganism, books on kink and fetish, and so forth. I've pretty much limited it to books I like, though as of this writing I'm far from being done with my cataloging. Still, I've gotten a lot of my favorites up there.

Merry Christmas , Seasons Greetings , Happy Hannukah , Joyeux Noel , Happy Kwanzaa , Yuletide Blessings , Peace on Earth and Blessings from Sacred Mother Earth.

May this holiday season inspire one and all to elevate their souls to greater things. May we all sip lifes sweet moments as we celebrate the coming of the New Year for with it comes the hope for a brighter tomorrow.

I thank all who have touched my life this past year , for friendships and acts of kindness are the nectar that nurtures ones spirit and sustains ones soul. Know that your kindness has allowed my inner self to swim in an ocean of light. The singing of your heart has resonated positively with me and inspired me to greet each day with brilliance.

My wish is for the New Year to bring all who read this peace , love and harmony. May you create a path of light where earthly treasures abound and may you awaken to your true purpose as you open your soul to a new world of guiding wisdom. The greatest gift you can give during the holidays is a warm smile , a loving embrace and an outstretched hand. Share those things not only with loved ones but with all humankind and together we can make the New Year one of bliss , beauty and love profound.

Merry Christmas , Seasons Greetings , Happy Hannukah , Joyeux Noel , Happy Kwanzaa , Yuletide Blessings , Peace on Earth and Blessings from Sacred Mother Earth.

Hi fellow MWer! Love your library :D
hello lupabitch,

i followed your link here from MW, and after reading your profile it occurs to me that we may have actually met... possibly at this years 'Gemini Party' in Portland.

small world, huh? :)
I would love to add you to my friends and how cool that you are so close, I would love to talk about the animal work you do, I have a house full of ferrets, cats and one dog. Plus a yard of squirrels and birds, that I talk to quite often.

Hey there Lupa! Good lord this place is pure SEX.
Thanks for reviewing Graeco-Egyptian Magic. I am REALLY happy to learn about this book! Bests-- TabithaBethia

Hey, Lupa, I recognize you from LJ--I'm "prncmongstkngs" over there!
*waves* Thanks for posting the link to this in your lj...I'm busy attempting to catalouge all the books I've ever read (I've probably forgotten more than I remember) and happily being all bibliophilic...*happy bouncing*
I love your library! I have seen a few books that I had not heard of that I wouldn't mind reading. This place is great!
*waves* :)
Glad to see you in the Mystical & Spiritual group.
I love it here. :-) I feel at home.
