Frances Billinghurst's Biography (Books) (Photos)

Frances Billinghurst
Australian High Priestess Frances Billinghurst is a regular contributor to The Magickal Light ezine.

She has been exploring the occult since early adulthood and came to the realisation that the more she discovers, the less she knows and that this will be a life long learning journey. She describes herself as a Wytch, a Wiccan and an occultist, although not necessarily in that order. Upon moving to Australia in 1990, she undertook a course on Celtic mythology that led to her moving to England a few years later where she found herself in the fortunate position to undertake some training with English occult author David Rankine. After she returned to Australia, she developed as passion for writing and went on to establish the Temple of the Dark Moon in 1999.

After holding the position of secretary of Pagan Alliance Inc (SA) for six years, Frances resigned in 2006 to concentrate on her writing. Her articles have been published both in Australia and internationally, including "Insight" magazine and the 2008 Llewellyn Witches' Calendar, and she is endeavouring to have at least one of the books rattling around inside her head published in the not too distant future. Frances openly acknowledges her book addiction, and confesses she is rather partial to the 'odd' bottle of red wine.
