the Pen Pal Project seems to have really taken off in our family. Both Liam and Lenora already have pen pals they immensely enjoy writing to, so I figured I might as well hop on the bandwagon. I’m always up for a new adventure.

Name: Mathilda Kelly

Select your age bracket: Since this appears to stop at 200, I am off the scale. Looks like I’m the first who has ever needed an age bracket at 2,000+

Desired age of Pen Pal: Any

Vocation: Dearies, when you live as long as I’ve been living, you’ve done just about everything under the sun. I have risen to the position of goddess. No, I am not being pretentious although admittedly, I sometimes exercise that quality. I am merely speaking the truth, as I am an extraordinarily powerful witch and have been promoted a few hundred years ago to that title and station.

What qualities would you like in a pen pal? As someone who has seen it all and done the rest, I’ll just say I’m looking for someone who has a zest for life and enjoys living. They must be open-minded and willing to believe that there is more out there than the mundane. After all, my very presence in the universe is far from mundane.

Describe yourself in a few sentences or less: My description in a condensed form is an impossibility. Over 2,000 years of existence simply cannot be abridged, so I’ll just include some key points of possible interest. I am an immortal witch with centuries and centuries of living under her belt and proud of it. Having lived so long sometimes makes me appear calloused and jaded. I will tell it like it is and don’t believe in sugar-coating a situation. However, If you are looking for warmth and cuddles, you’re better off writing to my husband’s granddaughter, Lenora Landgraab, whose profile is here. However, I am not without compassion and the desire to help someone who needs me. I’ve been referred to as “untouchable” to those who seek my aid and tend to hold certain people at arm’s length. It is my family and those I care for deeply who get to see the more sensitive side.

Hobbies & Interests: As a witch, I am interested in all things witchcraft, of curse.



I have a magic mirror I call Gunther. He helps give me valuable information I might need for certain situations. Plus, he is an excellent conversationalist.



I’m a skilled alchemist and will sometimes mentor other witches and wizards.

I enjoy such things as cooking, music, reading both fiction and nonfiction, and I love the act of writing. In fact, this is one thing I am exceedingly snobby about. I strictly use either a dip pen or a fountain pen, none of that ballpoint rubbish. I’m definitely a paper snob and will seek out the finer papers, such as Clairefontaine, Tomoe River, and of course, parchment. What can I say? There are just some habits that aren’t worth kicking.

I grow my own herbs and spices to use in cooking, elixirs, or spell work. Some, I send to my daughter, Alina and to Lenora (mentioned above), who I view as a daughter; we are that close. I’m President of the Witches’ Council and Grand High Lady of the Magical Ways and Means Association.

Would you be interested in meeting your pen pal? Certainly, if the situation arises and the circumstances are mutually favorable.

How many pen pals would you like? 2-3
