Mélusine Draco originally trained in the magical arts of traditional British Old Craft with Bob and Mériém Clay-Egerton. An Initiate into the Mystery Tradition, she has been a magical and spiritual instructor for over 25 years with Coven of the Scales and the Temple of Khem, and an author of numerous popular books on witchcraft and ritual magic. Her highly individualistic teaching methods and writings draw on ancient sources supported by academic texts and current archaeological findings. She also has a soft spot for the writings of Aleister Crowley and will only use the term ‘magick’ when writing about Thelema and its associated practices; endorsing AC’s view that magic is an amalgam of science and art, and the outer route to the inner Mysteries.
She now lives in Ireland near the Galtee Mountains and when not rescuing retired greyhounds has found time to produce several new titles currently published with John Hunt Publishing including the six-part Traditional Witchcraft series. She has also written two titles on power animals – Aubry’s Dog and Black Horse, White Horse, as well as By Spellbook & Candle: Hexing, Cursing, Bottling & Binding published by Moon Books, Magic Crystals Sacred Stones and The Atum-Re Revival published by Axis Mundi Books. Her debut novel, House of Strange Gods has now been published and is available in both paperback and e-book formats. All books available on Amazon.
As occult author and friend Alan Richardson once wrote of her: “Mélusine Draco, as her name suggests, has long been plugged into the powerful currents of traditional witchcraft and ritual magic. She is one of the real ones. Her provocative writing will show you how to move between the inner and outer worlds. Follow along behind her if you dare ...” Richardson, is the author of numerous esoteric titles including Priestess and The Old Sod, biographies of Dion Fortune and W G Gray
