About Ella Jo Street

I am the author of the Gwubbins the Witch stories - a children's fiction series. I wanted to write stories that I would have enjoyed reading as a child! I am delighted to collaborate with illustrator Mary Lou Springstead who has supplied the illustrations. A gallery has been set up on line for children to send in their pictures relating to the Gwubbins stories. More details about the Gwubbins project can be found on my very own Gwubbins website - see below for address.

About Ella Jo
When I was younger I travelled to India three times over the years. Thus I undertook meditation classes in Bodgaya and singing lessons in Varanasi, and did many, many tarot readings. I published an article called 'The Origins of Tarot' (Femspec Magazine, 2007). This was written after research undertaken in Bengal and is now published in my book 'Does Tarot Come From India?' Travelling in Turkey allowed me to discover clues for the origins and development of Tarot. 'Journey of a Tarot Reader' begins with my travel diary. On my return home I researched my findings and I was able to expand the book. Thus 'Does Tarot come from India?' will appeal to those with a little more in-depth knowledge of Tarot, whilst 'Journey Of A Tarot Reader' can also appeal to novices. I am pleased to be able to present theories from a slightly different angle on the appearance of tarot in Europe.

I have written other books that study tarot including in-depth analysis about The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress and The Emperor. If you are a publisher interested in this work, please contact me.

As a singer/songwriter I continue to work on music projects. My albums: ‘Limits Of Milkweed’,‘Alter Ego’ and 'Almost Anglo Saxon' can be found through the Diamond Seeds website.
