My name is Doreen and I am the author of The Wild & Weedy Apothecary, a book about how to use herbs in all sorts of ways, with a few grins and groans thrown in for good measure. I live in northern Idaho, where my husband and I run an herb business with the same name as the book – clever, huh.
Starting in late winter, it really turns into crazy house around here as we start a multitude of plant seedlings such as tomatoes, peppers & herbs for our spring plant business, Lightning Creek Gardens. This usually lasts around 4 months, or until all the plants can be outside or in the greenhouse. It is a labor of love.
I have been writing for a very long time, and have explored many ways of expressing myself that way, all except for fiction. These days I’m having the most fun sharing poetry and herb profiles, along with photo-journaling other types of creative expression, including handcrafts, gardening and cooking.
I am a Wild Witch by nature, seeking beauty, wisdom, enlightenment and a good belly laugh. Welcome to my world.
