On the latest episode of Thelema, NOW! Harper Feist talks to Sister Lita-Luise Chappell. Chappell’s latest books are The Collioure Concealment and Murder of the Mystras Nun, and the third part of the trilogy will be coming soon. She talks about her writing process and finding inspiration.
Lita has been writing poetry, short stories, mysteries, plays, lyrics, rituals, cookbooks, investigative articles, and travelogues for almost fifty years. She has a master’s degree in Psychology, and a doctorate in Human Sexuality. She has had several careers: in food service as a chef and caterer, in electronics, in the music industry, in the publishing business, and as a sex therapist. She has also traveled extensively to Western Europe, the Netherlands, the British Isles, the Far East, southeastern Asia, northern Africa, Canada, Mexico, other U.S. territories and Australia. She has been a student of the occult as a priestess in ancient Egyptian, Eleusinian Greek, Italian Strega, British Celtic, Northumbrian Faerye, Hawaiian Huna, and Thelema. Through it all, she has written as she went along, commenting on different cultures, human behavior, politics, love, sex, wisdom and magick.
