I am a rather simple soul, somewhat introverted (but passionate), now living on an island in the Pacific Northwest. Though college educated with a major in English Lit, way back when, I remain an enthusiast without many credentials. However, I am a traveler in many realms, where I still seek old bones, tomes, and philosopher’s stones,- and other such nonsense and treasures.
“She once wandered through the Mediterranean area, Italy, Africa… and lived for a while in Greece on Leonard Cohen’s former haunt, the island of Hydra….
Hearing the call of ancient valour, the pipes and old standing stones, today she has followed the wind back again to more northern climes where her heart lies in both the Hebrides and Ireland.”- from an Interview by Sue Vincent

I often wander off the beaten path in search of adventure and am a great friend of Murphy who states “when all else fails, read the instructions” -or in this case refer to the map (GPS). Just ask my daughter, the navigator, and keeper of time, who, by the way, is a grand travel companion, never misses a train- and keeps me on “track.”
I am largely self taught with an interest in history, astronomy and paleontology (adventures in the time machine). My blogging first began a few years back with a story of a virtual world which then morphed into the more creative Following Sister Moonand Gateways and Journeys. I like to create visions and tales that compliment each other so if you like storytelling and photography, welcome to my world and let’s share a tale!!
Published on Rez Magazine, The Hitchhiker’s Handbook, Three Drops of the Cauldron, FairyTalez and more

Ed Mooney, author at The Ruin Hunter (Ireland) says–
“There are very few authors that can draw the reader into the story, where time ceases to exist and you feel like you are part of the tale. You Cybele are one such writer. Thank you so much for sharing these stories with me. In ancient Ireland you would have been known as a Seanchaí “– re: A Canticle for Meg and Tales of the Caravanserai
A graceful, gothic swell to the storytelling, laced with sudden tragic turns, lovely phrasing, and poetic moments– Stephen Thom
“your stories are simple, captivating and profound” – Peter Nena
