Horne, Fiona

Fiona Horne (1966– ) is an Australian Wiccan, singer, model and actress.

Fiona Horne grew up in a Catholic home, but by age 13 was disillusioned with the religion. She rebelled by gravitating toward Satanism, mostly by reading fictional works. When the New Age movement expanded in the 1980s, she expanded her spiritual exploration and discovered Wicca. One of the main reasons it appealed to her is that is recognizes many gods and goddesses and holds that they exist within, not outside of, the individual. Horne was 21 when she initiated herself into Wicca and began practicing as a solitary. She studied naturopathy.

She was 24 when she became the lead singer for the techno-metal fusion band Def Fx (1990–1997). Her song lyrics were often occult in nature, but Horne remained quiet about her direct involvement in the Craft. She decided to go public as a Witch in 1998. She wrote an article on Witchcraft for Australian Marie Claire, but the article was killed. She decided to expand upon it and publish it as a book, along with her personal experiences, in Witch: A Personal Journey.

In 2002, Horne moved to Los Angeles to pursue film and television acting roles. She was the “Alt” in the 2004 Sci Fi Channel reality series Mad Mad House. She founded a Coven in Hollywood.

Horne has written additional books on Witchcraft: Witch; A Magickal Year (1999); Life’s A Witch: A Handbook for Teen Witches (2000); Witch: A Magickal Journey: A Hip Guide to Modern Witchcraft (2000); 7 Days to a Magickal New You (2001); Magickal Sex: A Witches’ Guide to Beds, Knobs, and Broomsticks (2002); Witchin’: A Handbook for Teen Witches (2003); Pop! Goes the Witch: The Disinformation Guide to 21st Century Witchcraft (2004); Bewitch a Man: How to Find Him and Keep Him Under Your Spell (2006); and L.A. Witch: Fiona Horne’s Guide to Coven Magick (2007).
