|Isaac Bonewits||1949 2010||Author. Druid. Singer (I recommend his album "Be Pagan Once Again").|
|Raymond Buckland||1934 2017||Englishman. Author of Pagan books. His writings have been criticized as being too shallow, but I have read two of his books, and thought they were good.|
|Laurie Cabot||1933 Not Dead Yet||She's the "Official Witch of Salem," a title given to her in 1975 by then-governor Michael Dukakis. She is sometimes criticized for being too "commercial" and dressing up like a Halloween witch.|

|Amber K||1947 Still Kickin'||
Wiccan author; one of the best. Her book Coven Craft: Witchcraft for Three or More is a must-read. True
Magick; a Beginner's Guide is also excellent.
She is the Executive Director of the Ardantane Pagan Learning Center.
|Carl McColman||1960 Not Dead Yet||
Outstanding Wiccan author. Writes in a clear, lucid style, without the mumbo-jumbo. I highly recommend The
Complete Idiot's Guide to Paganism, his magnum opus.
He entered the Catholic Church in March 2005, but still considers himself Pagan-friendly.
|Edain McCoy||1960(?) Not Dead Yet||Wiccan author. Has published several works on covens.|
|Silver Ravenwolf||1956 Not Dead Yet||True name Jenine Trayer. Probably the world's best-known Wiccan author. Her Book of Shadows is a standard work; it should be in every witch's library. She also writes fiction that is aimed at teens; I've read one of these books, and it was pretty good. Leader of the Black Forest Coven.|
|Starhawk||1959(?) Not Dead Yet||True name Miriam Simos. Tireless political activist. Author of The Spiral Dance, a standard work on modern Neo-Paganism from a feminist point of view.|
