Rowan Moonstone: grew up Southern Baptist, but got better! Studied a family tradition of Witchcraft with two ladies in Oklahoma City from the Ozarks, Erin Angel and Gracie Weber. Angel was an astrologer and Gracie did tarot. The tradition they handed on to me was like nothing I’ve ever seen before, internally consistent, but fragmentary, and heavily overlaid with Christianity. . . but it WORKS! I later trained in the Georgian Tradition of Wicca and took all three degrees of initiation under Georgia, their HPS in Oklahoma. I later was HPS of Silver Acorn Circle in OKC.   When Silver Acorn wanted to be a more open public circle, several of us broke off and formed Coven Amber Moon. I served as HPS of Amber Moon until I moved to Colorado in 1989. In 1986, I discovered the Fidonet community online and joined Magicknet which later became PODSNET. Many of the things I shared there are now to be found in the “Riders of the Crystal Wind BOS” online. While living in Colorado, I formed Bristlecone Glen in Colorado Springs, which existed for several years before breaking up. Took a few years off and then formed Anam Taith which again, lasted for several years before I retired. In the late 80s and early 90s, I was part of the anti-defamation efforts to counteract the “Satanic Panic”, and monitored anti pagan activities by the Christian right. I was the person who discovered and exposed the infamous “File 18” newsletter and eventually formed and wrote a newsletter to counteract such misinformation called “CultWatch Response”. At its height, CWR was read in 6 countries. I am now retired, but still practice privately and am active on FB, still keeping in touch with many of the people I met in the old
Fidonet days long before the Internet.

Bailey Roe: is a renaissance person who can never settle with just one interest. They love to try everything and learn about anything. There is no topic they can’t spend “too much” time investigating. From a young age they have been working magick, even before they had that word for it. Their feet got planted on the road officially at 15 and they’ve been loving every minute since. They have a strong pull towards healing magick, herbalism, and tarot.
