Soror Ouroboros
Soror Ouroboros hails from the Midwest, and in her day job works as a sexuality and health educator and domestic violence advocate. She comes from a family of mediums and Spiritualists, and a childhood where magick was always an option. So, when a friend gave her a copy of the Book of the Law (mind you, it may have taken her dropping it off a shelf to finally give it any attention), it seemed like a natural fit.
