Rowan Moonstone grew up Southern Baptist, but got better! She studied a family tradition of Witchcraft with two ladies in Oklahoma City from the Ozarks, Erin Angel and Gracie Weber, that was internally consistent, but fragmentary, and heavily overlaid with Christianity. Later training in the Georgian Tradition granted her three degrees of initiation. She then was the HPS of Silver Acorn Circle and later of Amber Moon. In 1986, she discovered the Fidonet community online and joined Magicknet which later became PODSNET. Many of her early writings are found in the “Riders of the Crystal Wind BOS.” She formed Bristlecone Glen in Colorado Springs, took a few years off, and then formed Anam Taith before retiring. In the late 80s and early 90s, she was part of the anti-defamation efforts to counteract the “Satanic Panic”, and monitored anti pagan activities by the Christian right. She 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” which was was read in six countries. Now retired, she practices privately and is active on Facebook, still keeping in touch with many of the people she met in the old Fidonet days long before the Internet.

A resident of historic downtown San Antonio, Patricia runs The Jade Stallion studios, which includes her writing, soon to be Taijifit business and, Your Daily Spread, which is featured both on Facebook and Youtube.
