This Crooked Crown is based out of Rhode Island, in a place that is both past and present, and pushing towards a less nomadic future.

About | Samantha | Kiki | Necromancer | Sponsorship

I grew up reading fairy tales and fantasy. I was obsessed with it. My imagination knew no bounds, but I was always entranced by the magic shown. I wanted to be the witch, the sorceress, the one with the answers when the problems seemed insurmountable. I wanted to wield that magic. So I did.

Now I want to share what I’ve learned with all of you. This website is a culmination of what I’ve learned and my continuing research and study into witchcraft and magic.

It’s my goal for This Crooked Crown to become the kind of place someone comes to for answers, for help, for a little guidance. The kind of place where you feel like someone understands and won’t judge. The kind of place where magic feels a little closer to home.
