A Third Degree Wiccan and Adept Major (6=5) in Golden Dawn, Morgan Drake Eckstein has been involved in Wicca and paganism his entire life. He is a board member of Hearthstone Community Church (Denver, Colorado—the Open Full Moon People), as well as a former elected officer of Bast Temple (Evolving Order of Eclectic Ways/[formerly] Golden Dawn in the Outer/Ba Iset Order of the Rosy Cross [BIORC] in the Inner). Besides his monthly newsletter column, Morgan writes and blogs about the esoteric traditions on his Gleamings from the Dawn blog, and is also the publisher of the ebook—POD (print-on-demand) magazine, the Denver Witch Quarterly. His latest fiction work involves an orc, Harmic Burrows, driving a taxi while solving problems in the fey community. He holds two bachelor degrees from the University of Colorado at Denver (literary studies and history). He is happily married to a ceramic artist. He is owned by several cats who wish that he would make more money as a writer and artist, so that they could eat fresh shrimp every night.
