About the author (1999)

Silver RavenWolf was born on September 11, 1956 with the name of Jenine E. Trayer. Silver RavenWolf publicly entered the magickal community in the early 80's with a newsletter entitled, Witch Press. Her ideas on religion and magick gave rise to her popularity in the early '90's among grassroots Pagan publishers. RavenWolf concentrated her attention on assisting newcomers in Craft society, thereby gaining the recognition of her peers. In 1990, Llewellyn World Wide published her manuscript entitled "To Ride A Silver Broomstick", which gained her instant acclaim. "The Teen Witch!" kit is produced in five languages making it the first alternative spirituality teen product with world wide distribution. RavenWolf teaches magick, Witchcraft, Pow-Wow, astrology, Tarot and hypnosis. She is the leader of the Black Forest Circle and Seminary, an organization containing several covens spanning the United States and Canada. She has appeared as a lecturer and workshop facilitator at events in the Neo-Pagan community.
