Fairies 101 – former Faerie Magick – is a website by Fiona Broome, who believes in fairies (aka faeries).
But this is important: This website is about real fairies, and they’re not all like Tinkerbell. In fact, most are larger (sometimes larger than humans) and many are not very nice.
Fiona freely admits that we don’t really understand faeries. The term “faerie” – more frequently spelled “fairy” – is just a category of entities, and we use that label to simplify discussions.
We also don’t really know where faeries live: In forests, in a “hollow Earth,” perhaps on another world, in a parallel universe, or somewhere else altogether.
Fiona Broome has conducted years of faerie research in dusty libraries and museums in the U.K., Ireland and the U.S. She’s also researched on-site in famous fae locations such as Glastonbury (England) and County Limerick (Ireland).
Fiona’s ancestry includes families related to the Fitzgeralds of Lough Gur (Co. Limerick, Ireland), long associated with the faerie world.
Fiona has been a Guest at Dragon*Con for several years, speaking about ghosts, faeries, and other paranormal topics.
Her faerie-related podcasts are free and appear online irregularly.
Fiona Broome is probably best known as the founder of Hollow Hill, the ghost website, where she shares sometimes unusual and irreverent views of ghosts and hauntings.
Trivia: The HollowHill.com website was originally created as a faerie-related website. It was named after the “hollow hill” homes of the Irish, fae Tuatha De Danann.
When she started the site, it included some references to ghosts.
However, so many people emailed Fiona about ghosts, that site slowly evolved into a paranormal site.
Fiona then started a separate site about Celtic folklore, and moved her faerie articles to FaerieMagick.com, which wasn’t an ideal URL, but it was available. In 2020, when she could register Fairies101.com, she moved her articles to that URL. She’s also using the “fairy” spelling more often, as it’s more widely recognized.
