I’m a Cape Codder who loves to write. The Cape never fails to provide fertile ground for artists, and can even inspire me when I am not actually there. My first writing gig was with Edible Cape Cod Magazine 15 years ago when my kids were tiny. My first story was about Cape Abilites Farm, which was also tiny at the time, just a few green houses off 6A in Dennis exploring hydroponics. I’ve been promoting farm to table and local food routes ever since, while also branching out into journalism for The Enterprise News, where I worked as a reporter on the Bourne school beat, and advertising content for businesses in Amsterdam, where I currently spend my winters.
I find it hard to actually stop writing, so in between articles and stories for other publications, I have always worked on my own projects. My first book, Minerva’s Owls, was published in 2017 by Home Bound Publications. It’s about finding balance in an unbalanced world through remembering the life force of the divine feminine.
In Minerva’s Owls, Mary Petiet weaves a fascinating and colorful web of yoga, healing and Western wisdom traditions. Filled with the infinite knowing of the feminine divine, this slim volume is packed with enduring wisdom. You will recover your deepest self in these pages.~Trista Hendron
The recent COVID-19 shutdown left me stranded in Amsterdam with the time I needed to launch three new and exciting projects. Two are books. Moon Tide: Cape Cod Poems, July 2020, and Owl Magic: Your Guide Through Challenging Times, October 2020. The third is a very small press called Sea Crow Press, which I established to give my titles a home.
About Moon Tide
If you can’t get to Cape Cod, Moon Tide will bring the Cape to you. I can’t get to the Cape myself, so the launching of Moon Tide took an entirely different shape than what I had planned. The original cocktail reading reception became an online launch which you can check out below.
Maybe we can have the proper in person launch next summer, but until then, I can confirm the old adage that once you have the sand in your shoes, you never truly leave Cape Cod.
About Owl Magic
Owl Magic is based on an interactive guide I wrote to complement Minerva’s Owls. Readers liked it, so I took the idea several steps further and over the course of the first lock down I created a new guide packed with ways to help you reach your highest self as we navigate this new landscape opening up before us. It works from the premise that times of change are times of opportunity.
Owl Magic is a tool box filled with simple, interactive anxiety-busting strategies designed to reveal your hidden power. Guided meditations, yoga poses, stories, poems, and writing prompts provide many routes to your highest self so you can meet today’s challenges with the life-affirming power of your own intuition and seize the incredible potential of the present moment.
