Born in the gritty Navy town of Bremerton, Washington , and raised in the Seattle suburbs, John Michael Greer has been writing since a few minutes after he learned to hold a pencil. The author of more than sixty current and forthcoming books on subjects ranging from ceremonial magic and Druid nature spirituality to alternative economics and the future of industrial society, he is also a prolific blogger and regular guest on dozens of podcasts. He has been initiated in Golden Dawn, Druid, and Masonic lineages, spent twelve years as Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America, and is currently writing a series of quirky fantasy novels. He lives in East Providence, RI with his wife Sara.
