From vampire to witch!

I've just found out that someone I used to know very well has won the £50k pa job of Wookey Hole witch.

Carole Bohanan, who has landed the role, used to be the chairman of the Vampire Society, a job she did very well. According to news stories reporting the Wookey Hole recruitment, she has recently been working as an estate agent (which some might say is a far worse kind of blood-sucker :) ).

I think Carole will be fantastic for her new job. As well as looking like a gorgeous sexy witch, she throws a tremendous amount of energy into everything she does. She is great at organising events and dealing with people as well as having a great eye for details. I am sure tourists visiting Wookey Hole caves will be treated to a great and informative show.

Congratulations, Carole! Good luck with the new job.

I'll be visiting Wookey Hole next month! Perhaps she can tell me more about this Vampire Society...
can you shed some light as well?

The Vampire Society was a club for people who were fans of vampire films and fiction. It met in London and organised things like trips to vampire film premiers, outings to places like Whitby, meetings with talks from authors and parties where everyone dressed up as vampires. I don't think it exists any more, but I am sure there must be other similar fan clubs that could be found with a web search.

Just this morning I saw a report about her way over here across the pond!

The Wookey Hole Witch seems to have generated a lot of interest. Wookey Hole caves are a great tourist attraction - worth visiting even before the owners recruited a live-in witch.

Yes I was wondering if that was the same Carole Bohanon, but the news reports merely referred to her as an ex-realtor (a far worse blood-sucker indeed). One would have thought her previous incarnation would have rated a mention?! Oh well.

She looks the same Carole Bohanon in the pictures - different costume, but that's all.
