Janet Farrar

Janet Farrar is a leading voice in Wicca. She is best known for her pioneering work with her late husband, journalist Stewart Farrar. Together they produced some of the classic texts of modern Paganism, including the best-selling A Witches' Bible: The Complete Witches' Handbook and The Witches' Goddess: The Feminine Principle of Divinity. She has cowritten more than ten books, including three with her current partner, Gavin Bone. She was initiated into Wicca by Alex and Maxine Sanders in 1970, and since then Janet has run several successful training covens. She considers herself to be a “priestess” rather than of a specific path or tradition. She leads speaking engagements and workshops in the US, Europe, and Australia with Gavin Bone.
