    Hi Goddess

    Lovely to know a bit more about you, Jess. I like to as well, I must admit. We sound like we have a lot in common ie chocolate, cats, music, books etc

    I don't know when I'll be down to Melbourne - I was hoping to get down to Continuum recently, but just could not get away.

    I'm GoH at Conflux in Canberra next eyar, so maybe come up and see me there?

    anyway, glad to know you like the books!




    Kate

    hi lexx u seem a bit confused, well - we here were just talking about books by Kate Forsyth, which are all excellent and I'm happy to say that finally having a holiday I have read the whole Eileannan series! yay! now if only heart of stars could hurry up and come out, I'm sure that'll make my day! But I know good things take time so I'm prepared to wait ..... :)
    But anyhow I have noticed you are from Russia , well it might interest you that I'm russian, too, although New Zealand has been my home for a few years now.

    Hello everybody i've only read half of the Witches of Eileanan series but am going to buy the rest of the books really soon.Rhiannons Ride is a very good series although the injustice in the shining walls involving Olwynne is really annoying, i very much hope it is remedied when the last book comes out.
    I really like Landon he is so nice, I hope he finds a lovely girl in heart of stars book.

    Hi :)

    My name is Melanie Elizabeth and I have never found a series of books that have become as dear to me as Kate's Witch's and Rhiannon's Ride books :) I have been a practising 'pagan' for seven years now and I often use some of the chants and incantations used in the books in my own Sabbath Rituals because I find them so moving and so in tune with my own path that I really believe I was meant to read this series :) The characters are rich, full and so appealling that you cannot help but want to protect them...

    I wonder if Kate has a few 'pagan' friends to source the information from? It certainly seems to mirror a lot of my own practises that have been learnt over the years...

    ...or maybe Kate is a Witch herself? :p

    But this is a thread about 'me' isn't it? :p

    I have two beautiful children: Damien, 8 and Elizabeth who is turning 3 on Wednesday :) They are the love of my life and so is my partner, Scott :) We have a house in the suburbs, we work full time and we have a wonderful network of family that are a constant source of help and endless information. We have two dogs, a guinea pig, a rabbit and four cats....

    I think that's enough for now :)

    Elizabeth

    Hey everyone! My name is Eva and like everyone else here I love books, chocolate and uh, cats.

    I have 3 cats, including two kittens that I found abandoned last year (Butterpaws, Stanley and Mercutio - yes you can tell different people named each one!) Well, I'm thinking of renaming Mercutio (my effort) and calling him Goblin, because he looks and acts just like one and not the noble Shakespearean character who I'd envisaged.

    Well, I first started to read the WoE series about six years ago and just finished Heart of Stars. My *other* favourite author is George RR Martin, although unlike Kate, he takes five years in between books!

    5 years!!!!!

    And we thought waiting a year between TSC and HOTS was a long wait! :)

    Welcome! :)

    I LOVE cats as well :) I have 5 who have chosen to live with me and mine at the moment in time - Odin, Friday (or Freya), Isis, (Friday and Isis are Odin's daughters - Drew, their mother, was one-eyed after she was hit by a car but she has passed on now) Marius and our new little girl, Taylor :)

    We also had a little boy by the name of Armand who was a little russian blue. He and Marius took on the relationship that Marius and Armand have in Anne Rice's books to an absolute T! :) Marius was his protector, his teacher, his constant companion ...

    ...until he was sadly taken away from us :(

    We also have 2 dogs (Jack and Mac), a guinea pig (Lewen - :)) and a rabbit (Zippy) :)

    The children have obviously had a hand in the naming of some of our furry friends ;)

    Again, welcome! :)

    Elizabeth

    thats because kate is the best

    all of kates books are AMAZING works of art......or at least i say so there's been some people responding badly to her praise latly......but thats not my point. kate is one on the legands of fanticy . wait no not a legand id go so far as a god, she comes out with books every year on time.....and every book is better than the last. not to mentoin her books are more addicting than breathing, but thats a good thing because i at least cant get ENOGH .


    well thats about it for now

    p.s kate if you read this id like to say keep up the great work.
