More About the Author

I live in beautiful upstate New York in a hundred and twenty year old farmhouse with five cats (including Magic the Cat, my co-author on several books). Between keeping up with the house and feeding the cats,I also manage an artists' cooperative shop, make jewelry and do a few other esoteric things on the side.

After writing numerous books on modern witchcraft for Llewellyn Worldwide(9 at the current count), I am turning my hand to fiction, with two paranormal romances from Berkley. (Yes, there's a witch in them. You had to ask?)

When I am not writing, I love to read (Jennifer Crusie, Katie Fforde, Tamora Pierce and Susan Wiggs are among my favorite fiction writers, and I read a lot of non-fiction about Witchcraft, spirituality, gardening and cooking). I also have a blog where I do lots of giveaways and talk about cats, writing, gardening, and witchcraft, not necessarily in that order.

I love to hear from people who read my books.

This is one book I actually recommend to others quite often. This wonderful little gem goes beyond 101 issues and formulated cook books. The book reads very casually, however, don't dismiss it on that account. The book is written in Blake's witty conversational style giving it the feel that you are sitting across from her having a bit of tea whilst talking about some very important issues that arise for any pagan oriented person who has been on the path for awhile. This volume fits nicely into the library of any pagan who does not live in a vacuum.

The Goddess Is in the Details: Wisdom for the Everyday Witch 'The Goddess is in the Details' is an absolutely fantabulous book. Filled with tips and suggestions on how to incorporate your Wiccan faith into your daily life, this is a must read for any Pagan. Not a Wicca 101 book, this one delves more deeply into the spiritual aspect of Wicca and how to walk the path every day, through the good times and bad times. I enjoyed this book very much and refer to it often. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to draw upon their spirituality day to day.

This book is greatly helpful to those wondering if they truly want to be Wiccan or Pagan. The author gives you the information about paganism and being a witch and what it is really like and how to apply it to your life everyday. The author writes the book in entertaining format that keeps your attention while giving you tips and ideas and also making you think about how you would live as a pagan at the end of each chapter. I plan on getting Blakes others books as well because of her writing style and because I know that her sence of humor make her books fun to read. The thing I liked most of all was the fact that the author describes being a witch as something that can be easy to live everyday if that is what you have in your heart. Granted you still have to use your instinct and intuition and the harm none law with certain aspects of the craft though.

I bought this book in hopes of working some more of my religious beliefs into my every day life. I've already been committed to my faith for a number of years and I wanted to recharge the day to day with meaning. I had hoped that this book would provide some suggestions to help me achieve that goal, but instead I found that the author seemed to talk down to the reader.
It felt like a lot of the jokes and asides that might have been meant to bring the otherwise spiritual guidance down to earth just made it seem condescending; as though the reader could only handle a few deep thoughts at once before an interjection if elbow nudging , "y'know what I mean?"

The author quotes some rather weighty texts, but then proceeds to dumb them down to the point where I found myself wanting to continue reading the books she'd quoted rather than her own. There was no extrapolation of the passages quoted, nor any real new ideas or concepts to be gleaned from her accompanying thoughts.

If you're new to the Pagan lifestyle, this book may give you a step beyond the basics but it doesn't offer anything more substantial than that. Wiccans looking for ways to lead a more spiritual every day life would do best to look elsewhere.

This review originally appeared on The Magical Buffet website on 3/26/09.

I recently finished reading Deborah Blake's latest book "The Goddess is in the Details", which is releasing in May. What a wonderful read! As Blake points out in her introduction, there are "many books out there for the witch just starting out. Lovingly (or not so lovingly) referred to by many of us [Wiccans/Witches] as `Wicca 101' books." What has been lacking in the vast Wiccan book marketplace are books that talk more about what it means to be a Witch, the more spiritual and philosophical side of those who call themselves Wiccan. "The Goddess is in the Details" fills the void.

Blake's book asks, and answers, just about any question you could ask about what it means to be Wiccan. The book is divided into six parts: The Everyday Witch, The Inner Witch, The Outer Witch, The Social Witch, The Practicing Witch, and The Natural Witch. Within those six parts, Blake discusses everything from "The Seven Beliefs at the Heart of Being a Witch" and "Mindful Eating" to "The Witch and Marriage" and "Interacting with Others at Work and Play". Better still; at the end of each chapter, Blake has "Something to Think About" and/or "Something to Try". These ask you to consider how you deal with or view the things previously discussed or offers exercises to try to incorporate what you've just read into your life.

I tend to think of this book as kind of a "High Priestess in a Box". Any question you would think to ask a High Priestess, Blake answers. This makes the book an invaluable tool for Solitary practioners, individuals interested in becoming leaders within their respective spiritual communities, and any Wiccan looking to find what it means to be a Witch.

This is a beautiful book, really inspiring and practical.

Deborah Blake helped me transform sofisticated rituals into everyday prayers and ways of living Wicca.

From how to make an altar to how to deal with non-wiccan family or friends, the wisdom in this book is amazing.

I have read it many times specially when I need some inspiration. A must have for every wiccan/pagan/witch :)
