Jamie Wood has a gypsy’s spirit, a healer’s touch and a writer’s soul. There is nothing more fun for her than playing with the muse.. preferably on the road, in nature, with the wind in her hair and pencil wrapped in there somewhere. She is most at home when she is either nurturing her soul or taking care of another.
Jamie has authored eight books. She has written The Wicca Cookbook with the help of Tara Seefeldt, Ph.D. in Early Modern European History. Next came The Hispanic Baby Name Book and an active pursuit of promoting literature, participating and speaking at the Latino Book and Family Festival, the Festival of Books elementary schools, and other writers’ events. She hosted a cooking show treatment (The Cauldron, produced y Sci-Fi Channel) and received an international award for Best International Reference Book. Her other books include The Teen Spell Book, The Wicca Herbal, The Enchanted Diary, Latino Writers and Journalists, Rogelia’s House of Magic, and Faerie’s Guide to Green Magick in the Garden, (also available in French). Jamie currently writes a travel blog, Backside of the Wind: Gypsy Wanderings from Behind the Orange Curtain and for Cali Communications. She is now a regular columnist for Witches & Pagan Magazine with her column Herbal Journeys.
Jamie is an avid believer in the Human Potential movement and trained massage therapist, workshop and ritual leader and personal coach. She offers healing touch therapy, rituals and workshops as part of the Return to Self Workshop Series at Shri Veda Wellness Center in Costa Mesa, massage in Crowley Lake and teaches various workshops at the Northern California Women’s Herbal Symposium in Laytonville, CA. She is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Depth Psychology.
