Laurelei Black is a hedge-rider, a Cunning Woman, a traveler on the crooked path of the Witch. She is  a priestess of love and pleasure, an Ishtar-woman, an Aphrodite-woman. She is a friend to daemons and a mate to the Red God. A bone collector; a temple dancer. 

Pioneering writer within the domains of Aphrodisian studies and American Folkloric Witchcraft, Laurelei is also a co-Director and frequent presenter at the Babalon Rising Pan-Thelemic Festival, a co-Director of Camp Midian (Festivals), and the proud operator of Asteria Books and Events and of the Blade & Broom shop.
