Sorita d'Este -Researcher, Author & Priestess
[A Witchvox Sponsor]

Category: Authors

Website Profile: This is the website of Sorita d’Este, a UK based writer who specialise in subjects related to Western Mysticism, Magick, Folklore, Mythology and Divination. With her author husband David Rankine, she co-authored books such as The Guises of the Morrigan; Circle of Fire; Practical Elemental Magick; Practical Planetary Magick and Wicca Magickal Beginnings. She is the editor of several anthologies, including Hekate Keys to the Crossroads; Horns of Power and Priestesses Pythonesses & Sybils.

Since ever she can remember Sorita wanted to be a writer. In kindergarten she wrote a poem about gnomes, which she is still proud of today. Her early years were spent in Cape Town (South Africa) where she grew up being influenced a great deal by her Nonna (Italian for “grandmother”) who encouraged her to read the Romantic poets, books like Dante’s “Inferno” and Shakespeare as soon as she was old enough; her love of nature was encouraged by her Grandfather who was an avid gardner and grew all kinds of things from flowers to onions, figs to tomatoes and any number of culinary herbs. Likewise her own parents’ love of animals meant that she grew up with a menagerie of animals, especially dogs and birds (mostly pigeons!) and had a great deal of freedom to express herself.

Before settling on a career as an author and publisher, Sorita had earned a living from things as diverse as working for a milling company to modeling; working in a theatre to managing an alternative health centre; eCommerce to the Music industry and finally did a few years in the competitive and creative world of Advertising. She has a love of languages, but hastens to add that she isn’t that good at any of them, but at least she can say hello and goodbye in everything from Afrikaans, Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, Xhosa and of course English! Her excuse for being interested in everything, seemingly all at the same time, is that she is a double Sagittarius and that as such it should be allowed!

Having spent many years in London (England, UK) she now lives in Monmouthshire, on the edge of the beautiful Brecon Beacons in Wales (UK) with occult author husband David Rankine and their beautiful baby boy. She remains actively involved in a number of the esoteric traditions she is an intitiate of.
