About the Author:


Using her perspective as an experienced Satanic insider, author Lilith Starr writes about modern nontheistic Satanism as exemplified by The Satanic Temple. Her first book, The Happy Satanist: Finding Self-Empowerment, is part of The Satanic Temple's Recommended Reading list and has been featured by Satanic book clubs across the globe. Her second book, Compassionate Satanism: An Introduction to Modern Satanic Practice, is the first book to explore personal Satanic practice as pioneered by The Satanic Temple. In 2020, she was awarded The Satanic Temple's first Anatole France Literary Excellence Award for her writing.


Starr currently serves as an official Minister of Satan, ordained by The Satanic Temple and legally empowered to perform weddings, funerals, and other Satanic rituals such as Unbaptisms.


In addition, she is also a pioneer in Satanic leadership and community-building. In 2014, she founded The Satanic Temple of Seattle, one of The Satanic Temple's first five congregations. She served as its Chapter Head until 2019, building it from just a handful of people into a large, thriving Satanic community. Her writings on Satanic community-building have helped many other Satanic Temple congregations get their start as well.

She holds a B.A. with honors in English Literature and Language from Harvard University and an M.A. in Journalism and Communications from Stanford University. She lives in Seattle with her husband Uruk Black.
