Eat, Drink & Be Scary! #HalloweenHop



It's Hallo-week! The  night to dress up in fun costumes, give away candy and to celebrate the new year that turns on Samhain and much more. It’s also a great excuse to watch and read some of my favorite whacky witches.

Fran and Jet Owens

Played by Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest respectively, these ladies raised Sally and Gillian when their mother passed away and they went a long way to teach the girls a lesson about abusing their magic. Honestly, as much as I love the whole of the Owens family of witches, it wouldn’t be the same without these bawdy broads blazing the trail.




Paige Winterbourne, Eve and Savannah Levine

These witchy women of the Otherworld are fantastic. Paige was too young and too inexperienced to handle the politics of her old world coven. To add insult to injury, Paige hooked up with the sorcerer son of the Cortez Cabal Lucas. Together, they are raising Savannah, one of the most powerful witches of all time – the product of the half-demon witch Eve and her lover, the sorcerer Kristof Nast. These women are out of this world and their magic is so much fun.



Wicked Witch of the West

No, not Elphaba in Wicked and Son of a Witch (although arguably I adore these books) but the classic Wicked Witch of the West played by Margaret Hamilton in the 1939 classic film version. Her stooped shoulders and green skin, not to mention her cackling laugh and obsessive behavior over Dorothy Gale notwithstanding, she ranks up there with Endora as one of my favorite all time witches. The books just make me love her more.



Molly Weasley

She forever won my heart with her down to earth approach to magic and her no nonsense attitude towards their enemies. Her ‘get the hell away from my daughter’ and full on battle mommy mode in the final Harry Potter book didn’t hurt either.



I love those whacky witches during every season of the year; I just get to indulge in these lists at Halloween. Of course, Chance Monroe is always on my list. The hedge witch is the main character of one of the first books I ever wrote. Want a chance to win a copy of Earth Witches Aren't Easy?  Just leave me a comment and let me know what witches do you love?

The winner will be announced on Monday, November 2!

  1. Great post. Thanks for sharing. My favorite witch is Samantha Stephens from Bewitched. When I was a little girl, I would pretend to be her. I spent hours wishing I had magical powers.

  5. I love Bette Midler as Winnie Sanderson in Hocus Pocus. She was perfect for that role. And my mother wants to vote for Endora from Bewitched. She loved that show.
