This important book by debut author Sonja Sadovsky shines new light on how three captivating minds shaped the course of history. The fantasy novels of Dion Fortune, Marion Zimmer Bradley, and Diana L. Paxson influenced the image of the priestess in Neopagan and Goddess-centered spirituality throughout the world. The Priestess & the Pen shows how their work changed the way women are depicted in literature, created space for women to reclaim their power, and energized the women’s equality movement.

Presenting a reinterpretation of the Goddess as fourfold rather than threefold, The Priestess & the Pen adds dimension and relevance to the traditional Triple Goddess archetype in a way that has never before been considered with such compelling clarity. This book is poised to become a vital interpretation of the Pagan priestess.

Since childhood, and for various reasons, The Priestess and the Pen author Sonja Sadovsky has been enamored with the image of successful women who overcame adversity to create something new, both in fiction and in reality. And, more often than not, magic played a part in these images of Goddesses and Priestesses. Here she discusses her motivation for writing her new book and the desire to see today's dreams become tomorrow's reality.
