M. A. Phillips is a writer and fabric artist in Northern NY. She lives with her husband, daughter, and three lazy cats. She fell in love with writing and sewing at a young age thanks to her encouraging, creative family. Over the years, she’s made various plushies and fabric art dolls who have found homes on bookshelves and altars around the United States. Mythology, folklore, and the landscape are her primary inspirations. Her writing has been published in The Ampersand, Oak Leaves, Stone, Root, and Bone, and the anthology Brigid’s Light through Weiser Books in 2022.
Her debut novel, River Magic, was released by Shadow Spark Publishing in October 2020. This was followed by its sequel, Hearth Magic in February 2021, and then Forest Magic in May 2021.
You can find examples of her writing and sewing in her portfolio.
She is currently the Senior Druid of Northern Rivers Grove in the Watertown area. She completed the Dedicant Path of Ár nDraíocht Féin in 2009, and she continues her studies of Irish lore and language.
