I'm Ahmadi Riverwolf. My name in Palo is Yayi Nganga Tormenta Kaluguera. I'm the daughter of a West Philly English teacher and spent the most of my childhood roaming through metaphysical book shops and learning at the side of the strange, the outcast, the weird and the unheard. At ten I discovered that when I threw objects on the ground, I could see distinct patterns that "told me stuff". At eleven I was told the dead walked with me, at twelve I was given my first set of tarot cards.
I was initiated to Palo Kimbisa in 2007. Since that time, I have been privy to the wonder and beauty of this fascinating and timeless religion.
I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.
My name is Jhadas Adams. I've always had two 'heads'. When I was five, I told my mother about a conversation I had with her father - he died before I was born. I've always seen shapes at the edge of my mind's eye, and heard voices in places where I was the only one around. My mother's crossed the river to the other side, but I still feel her and talk to her in my dreams. When I do the great good work that I'm here to do, I can feel her hands on my shoulders.
I received Rayado in 2003 and was given the name Madre Lango Lindera. I was crowned Omo Yemaya in Cuba in 2004 and have been walking with Lwa since 1994, but have no initiations in Vodou. I read the Diloggun and the cards and speak for the dead when they have no voice. I am a psychopomp troubadour, and I speak for the trees in the upper reaches of the Pacific Northwest.
I am a kinked, socially marginal, mildly felonious anarcho-shamanic Santeria Priestess. I'm also an author of both erotic horror and erotica. My first full length novel, It Never Ends - Book One of the Vengeance Cycle, was released in 2009. I'm currently at work onthe sequel out.
