Chatting about the Faeries in Fiction and Reality with Kate HareGirl Ray

Thanks to Kate HareGirl Ray for inviting me on to her You Tube channel to discuss my interaction with, and writing about, the faeries. We chatted for over an hour but only scratched the surface of the phenomenon. The discussion covers my own background and how I came to form an interest in faerie folklore, our personal experiences, the connection of faeries with certain landscapes and environments, the role of altered states of consciousness in faerie interaction, and how I’ve deepened my understanding of the phenomenon through Charles Bonnet Syndrome. We finish off talking about my novel Dead but Dreaming. Kate’s a very easy-going interviewer and it was a pleasure to chew the cud. Please do subscribe to her channel, as she has accumulated a large number of excellent interviews on the subject, from a wide variety of perspectives. Here is the link to the interview:

I write about my subversive thoughts... a lot of them are about those most ungraspable of metaphysical creatures; faeries. I published my first novel in 2016, "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun", and my second novel was published in 2020 - 'Dead but Dreaming', where some very cosmic faeries are awaiting the protagonist at an English psychiatric hospital in 1970...
