Tish Owen is a woman of abundance. She resides in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband Patrick, a very silly Rottweiler, a cat who bosses everyone, a Vietnamese Fire-Bellied Tree frog, and an African Gray parrot who is much smarter than most humans in the room. She loves her life and is grateful for more things then there is room to list here.
Tish is a daughter, a mother, a grandmother, a wife, a friend, owner of The Goddess and the Moon shop in Nashville since 1991, a published author, a seamstress, a sailor, and a brewer.
Long recognized as an authority in the area of psychic phenomena and occult activity, she has lent her expertise to occult crime investigations.
She is the coordinator of the Pagan Unity Festival Now in it's thirteenth year, it is the largest festival in the Mid-South. The festival is a four day event and brings in Pagan authors that many in the area have never gotten a chance to see in person.
Tish reads tarot cards professionally, her down-to-earth manner of laying out the situation and her good advice has kept clients coming back to her for eighteen-plus years. She also employs other divination tools such as numerology, pendulum, graphology and palmistry.
Tish is a media staple apearing on WWTN, WLAC, WRVW, WRLT, and WSM radio, The Morning News with Larry Britton, Channel 4 News at 6 and 10, The Talk of the Town, and CMT's "Gone Country". She's also been featured in the Tennessean, the Nashville Scene, Nashville Lifestyles Magazine, and other local publications. Now they have gone and let her write books and there is no telling what that may lead to or what happens next! Stay tuned!

Spell It Correctly by Tish Owen © 2009 WillowTree Press, LLC. eBook $6.99 (U.S.)
If you have read Tish Owen’s previously published book, Chasing the Rainbow (see my review), you know why I enjoy reading her work. She writes in a friendly, chatty style, while still conveying the essential information. Even when I’m not really a big fan of the topic (and I don’t really like spell books), I enjoy how she presents the information.
Tish has made every effort to make the spells she provides easy to accomplish. The instructions are clear; the basics are repeated as needed (you can’t say “I forgot” because she won’t let you forget); and the ingredients are, for the most part, easily obtainable. Add to that the fact that she provides encouragement for the reader to create their own spells, and you have a well-written spell book.
Tish provides spells for a variety of uses from breaking an addiction to stopping gossip. While she may not have dealt with EVERY eventuality, she has certainly dealt with a significant number of potential situations. You should be able to find inspiration for almost any use within the covers of this book.
Tish is an author who knows how to get her lessons across. You won’t want to “read” this book, you’ll want to refer to it. Read the first few and last few sections of the book (“If At First You Don’t Succeed…Read the Directions”, “Real Magic”, “Different Methods of Spellwork”, “Glossary”, and “References/Resources”) and use the rest of it as needed.
You won’t find a lot of ceremonial in her spells. Tish writes for the average individual. It is easy to see why she is one of the up and coming authors being published by WillowTree Press. I hope to see a lot more of her work in the future.
