The Grimoire

Free resources for you and your business

Welcome to my Grimoire.

Traditionally, grimoires are textbooks of magic. These were pretty popular in Europe between the 14th and 18th century. Grimoires contained formulas for potions, enchantments and medicines; tutorials for the creation of talismans; chants to convoke supernatural entities; and other such pleasantries. For ancient wizards and alchemists, grimoires represented a life of research.

My grimoire isn’t that different, in spirit, at least.

It is the home of the tutorials and resources I have created over the years. And now I’m sharing these with you, to help you grow your business. To help you tell your story with your authentic voice. To help you stay on top of your work with more ease.

In my grimoire, you will also find proof of my passion for the alchemy of language. Through stories and mysteries that revel around “the world of words”.

Browse, explore, read anything that takes your fancy.
I have added a table of contents to help you find what you want:
