My name is Emily Thornton (Emma Gardner) and I have my Masters in Journalism. I love editing work and working with others. I have written numerous articles along with having my own column with local newspapers for over 10 years.  Even though I grew up in a fairly religious household, I have always felt a love of nature and the metaphysical. I have an affinity for green magic and I love reading tarot for people around me. I even opened my own little side business called Celtic Readings, Oils and Sundries. I love stories and providing perspective to people at a crossroads. I work with Brigid mainly, but love the Celtic pantheon of deities.
