Very few authors are exempt from this hard and challenging process – even the world’s top-selling and most successful writers suffer from it. Very few authors understand the creative writing process better than Bryan E Robinson.

Similar ethical ideas permeate many other fringe areas of occult and mystical philosophy. As a result we find that many within in Witchcraft identify themselves specifically as ‘White Witches’ and thereby associate themselves with only positive magic, whilst at the… Read More
