About D G Mattichak jr
D G Mattichak jr is a freelance writer, author and blogger who lives in Melbourne Australia. He immigrated to Australia in the 1970s from Syracuse New York where he was born and lives with his artist wife Michelle and their two cats.
D G was educated at one of Melbourne’s oldest private schools and went on to study art before trying his hand at a variety of interesting occupations before settling on a career as an ala carte chef working in Melbourne’s vibrant and often exotic restaurant scene for over twenty-five years.
D G has been a student of the occult for over thirty years and has published many works on a variety of topics from Hermetic Magick to Witchcraft over the past ten years. He is well known in magickal circles in Australia and has been involved with one of the longest running Neo-Pagan gatherings at Victoria’s scenic Mt Franklin since the early 1980s. Due to the prolific amount of material that he has published in recent years D G has developed a strong and loyal following of readers of both his blogs and his published works.
David has always been a big reader and has had the ambition of writing for a living since his childhood and in 2010 this ambition became a reality with the publication of his first novel Loot. He followed this with an esoteric work on Thelema called A Comment on the Verses of the Book of the Law in 2011 and then with a second novel called Master of the Crossroads at the beginning of 2012. D G has been an obsessive blogger for a couple of years with this blog and its companion blog specifically devoted to D G’s magickal writings at www.ankhafnakhonsu.net . He was accepted as a freelance staff writer on Moot Magazine in 2011 and is presently working on several more publishing projects for the near future.
Currently D G spends his days writing internet copy, magazine articles, blog posts and anything else that someone wants to pay him to write.
