Yet when things unraveled, alcoholism took its toll on her life and livelihood. In the end, we see a renewed Horne blazing her own trail and becoming a pilot, literally setting flight to achieve her dreams. While the book does mention the way Horne boldly declared herself a witch, it in no way goes into her experience of what her journey as a famous witch was like beyond assuming this label.
She does not write about what it means to be represent of Paganism or witchcraft as a public icon, or share her connection to its larger community. Her practice is never touched on, nor does she establish a definition of a witch or clearly define her beliefs. By the end of the book, after starting AA, Horne turns to writing writing about embracing God. For a more critical reader, it is clear to see why the Pagan community remains dubious about Horne, as she notes throughout The Naked Witch the way she played up being a witch as part of her career in Hollywood, and as a way to land book deals and roles.
Even when she hits a highlight, it is often marred by self-loathing, hatred, and despair.
If anything, The Naked Witch gives insight into her on-going struggle with her personal demons. While she tries to perk up with a happy ending of sorts, I was left feeling almost as alone and abandoned as Horne seems to have felt through her life. Despite the brevity of information on her interior life as a witch, I found The Naked Witch: An Autobiography entertaining. It is a juicy, sensational read that I enjoyed for its vapidity.

Horne presents an interesting story in because she is able to play up the glitz and glamour of her fame and lifestyle. There were a few instances where I was in awe of the life she lived, particularly when she manifested a meeting with Nicolas Cage and had a fling with Gene Simmons. My favourite part was when Horne describes being on Celebrity Survivor Australia, living on a remote island, and for the sake of her tribe, she decided to use her beloved year-old tarot cards to start a fire after a storm had dampened all the wood, only to be kicked off a week later.
Love her or hate her, it is hard to deny the role Fiona Horne had in bringing witchcraft to a new generation. Horne has truly triumphed through the depth of her emotional journey, while living a life many can only dream of experiencing, and through it, she has emerged with clarity of heart and peace of mind.

Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! Fiona Horne's extraordinary journey through a metaphysical-laced material world has all the breathtaking twists turns perils redemption and enlightenment of a fantasy novel merged with Siddhartha and Entertainment Weekly.
Its the late 70s and a 10 year old girl builds an altar in the bushland of suburban Sydney. Stones leaves and flowers are offerings for her animal friends and the mystical creatures of her imagination. Hidden from the real world the girl feels accepted and safe.
Alone in the bush she is a little pagan. Fast forward to the 90s and Fiona Horne is now the face of modern Witchcraft best-selling author radio and TV personality and founding member of chart-topping Aria nominated electro-rock group Def FX. She has Hollywood and the world at her fingertips. This book was a long time coming. As a fan of Fiona Horne's for as long as I can remember I was always wanting to know more about this gorgeous, magical woman who kept me captivated with her witchy and rock star ways.
I always felt like she was the big sister I never had. A big sister rock star who was guiding me in my witchy ways as the years went on. No one in life is perfect, and this book shows that Fiona is imperfectly perfect. She is open and honest, raw and blunt. She holds nothing back, and readers will develop an admiration and respect beyond any level. It has everything in, including her exciting, hilarious, and sometimes awkward encounters with the likes of Kiss, Tom Jones, a!
She never once tries to portray herself as someone who thinks she is above anyone, she is down to earth, loving, full of grace even innher toughest moments in life.

Reading this will inspire you, make you self reflect and want to know more. Back in my 20's following Fiona's career I so badly wanted to be her, this book showed me that I am her, and she's me. Equally goddesses that are struggling, thriving, failing, flourishing and some days just barely hanging on to our broomsticks but dammit we are not giving up.
Read this book!
If you have never heard of her it doesn't matter! Because this book will inspire you and entertain you. A great read about a great woman. If you are, or have been, a fan of Fiona Horne. This book will help fill in the gaps of what she has been doing since moving to the USA. Sometimes heartbreaking want to give her a very big hug but ultimately uplifting. Great example of how interesting life can get when the only way left is up. This was a book that I couldn't put down.
An honest and inspiring life journey!! DanV's Mum. If one could time travel you would embrace a fourteen year old Fiona Horne and tell her that life was going to turn out just fine. Horne writes from the heart with such candour about her life that reading her biography feels like your best friend sharing her inner most secrets with you.
Surviving dark periods, Horne has risen like a Phoenix from these ashes of her youth and has reinvented herself as a Goddess with a mission. Highly recommended. Horse lover.
