Living in the northwest of England in the magical Lancashire County, Craig Spencer has long been surrounded by the occult. A holistic therapist, traditional witch, and avid bookworm, he loves to explore both old and new areas of the craft and work with them in new and creative ways. Craig Spencer is a Lancashire-born Anglo-Italian witch who practices traditional Lancashire witchcraft. His academic background earned him a bachelor’s of science degree with honors from the University of Salford and a postgraduate certificate in education from the University of Central Lancashire. He is an integrated therapist and Reiki teacher. In his downtime he enjoys reading, learning new languages (currently Mandarin, “ni hao!”), and has a love for all things comedy and horror. Craig can be found on Instagram @WitchcraftUnchained and Twitter @CraigSpencer90. Other works by Craig Spencer include Aradia: A Modern Guide to Charles Godfrey Leland’s Gospel of the Witches published by Llewellyn Worldwide.

On June 22, 1951 the last of the Witchcraft Acts was repealed in the UK. This single action would lead to the rise of what would become the global witchcraft revival movement. Despite another year marking the passing of this historical event, so much of our history still remains lost, misunderstood, or frankly made inaccessible to the magical community at large. There is a craving for better information about the more recent history of witchcraft in the hopes that these gaps in knowledge may be filled, and it’s the author's intention to make Witchcraft Unchained: Exploring the History & Traditions of British Craft the book that will do just that. By addressing the metaphorical chains that have found their way into our community and restoring what has been lost, misunderstood, or made inaccessible, the reader can become empowered with new thoughts which will allow them to connect with their magic on a deeper and more personal level.
