Winterhammer is the name of the Mjölnir pendant I wear, so called because my beloved cat Winter sank her sharp teeth into it many years ago, and it still bears her mark. My name is Ceallaigh (pronounced ‘Kelly’). I’m a PhD student of Folklore and a writer of science fiction, fantasy, and poetry living in Atlantic Canada. I’m also a progressive Heathen. You can find out more about my work at, but this is where I blog about my spiritual life.
