LILITH STARR writes about the Satanic religion and personal Satanic practice. 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. From 2012-2013, she was Editor-in-Chief of the webzine "Satanism 101."
She is also a pioneer in Satanic leadership and community-building. In 2014 she founded The Satanic Temple of Washington State, one of The Satanic Temple's first five Chapters, and served as its Chapter Head for five years, building it from a handful of people into a thriving 90-person Satanic community. While there, she directed the Satanic Invocation action challenging Joe Kennedy, the praying high school coach, and launched the first functioning After School Satan Club at a local elementary school. Her writings on Satanic community have helped many other Chapters get their start as well.
Starr holds a B.A. in English from Harvard and an M.A. in Journalism from Stanford. She lives in Seattle with her husband, Uruk Black.
