New! Quin’s Books

I now have my very own online bookstore where I’ll be selling most of my own books, and recommending other books too. Anything you buy there will give me a commission through the affiliate program, but I’ll only be listing books I actually recommend!

A red banner with cream text: Quin's Books - magic, beauty & delight

As an author and writer, Halo offers a glimpse into the magic of the world. Her lifelong passion is faeries, so they are often found nearby, whether in poetry or prose.

She has her PhD in philosophy of storytelling, so is no stranger to academia, but believes in the importance of accessibility in writing.

New in 2023: Crimson Craft

Crimson Craft - sexual magic for the solo witch - healing magic working with the divine erotic in ritual and creative practices.

My latest book! “Crimson Craft – Sexual magic for the solo witch” is a book of healing, of self love, of sacred sexuality and the divine erotic. Working with ritual, creativity, journaling, magical practices, and deities of love, this book is not gender specific but rather honours the divine power of eros in each of us, supporting greater embodiment, pleasure, and love.

New in 2022: Folktales, Faeries, and Spirits

“Folktales, Faeries, and Spirits – faery magic from story to practice” is out now and available from all good bookstores. Probably some of the wicked ones too… Find out more here.
