Christina McCarthy

Biography

Christina McCarthy is the author of the acclaimed book ‘Forbidden Magic – A Druid Born’, the first in a series of books about druid life in ancient Ireland. She was born into a rich tradition of storytelling, Irish folklore, Celtic spirituality and healing.
The author's painstaking research enables her to show us the authentic environment,
flora, fauna and human diet extant in Druidic Ireland.

"Forbidden Magic" is a book for children, grown-ups and Celtic Reconstructionists alike, empowering the reader both spiritually and mentally, enabling them to achieve ‘wholeness’ of personality which is so lacking in the modern world.
Now living in Western Australia, she is completing the Forbidden Magic series. She spends much time playing her Irish ‘high-headed’ harp both for the inspiration it gives her and for the beauty of its voice. She is passionate about reviving Celtic tradition, especially in the areas of healing and the arts.

    Very enertaining stuff - a trip down memory lane for those who love classic Motorcycles; especially the British vintage models - full of laughs and gasps of sheer wonder at the mad antics of the author. Truly this is about another time where one could get away with a lot more than one can today - and being a natural dare-devil certainly helps! A good read! True life adventure.
