Top Ten Witchy Chicks

The term “witchy chicks” originally comes from the Witchy Chicks blog, which describes themselves as “Eight wicked good women who write about magic, fantasy, and the paranormal.” The blog itself is no longer posting,  but the archives are available.

I am using the term “witchy chicks” to refer to women who write about witchy women as their main characters. Some of the characters are witches, some wiccans, some just gifted with paranormal abilities. These authors are in this category for their non-urban fiction work. And, some of their books and series are better than others. Authors with asterisks have been associated with the Witchy Chicks Blog at some point or another.

  1. Great list! I read a couple of Madelyn Alt’s books and just couldn’t connect with the characters and stopped after the 2nd.

    I love both of Juliet Blackwell’s series..what a great new cozy author. Shirley Damsgaard is a favorite also.

    I’m definitely keeping this list handy and plan to check out the authors I haven’t read before. These are my types of books.
