Laine Mardollsdottir is from Western New York and has recently escaped its icy grasp and is dwelling happily in sunny San Diego. She has been a member of several traditions and has acted as a clergyperson, spiritual guide, and seeress for various groups and communities and is a polytheist and a member of the Red Wood Vanatru tradition.

Laine writes for pleasure (science fiction on her Empyrean Dreams blog and other random fiction), for profit (as a custom content creator), for activism (in her columns in various LGBT publications), to discuss Pagan issues (on her blog here and Pagan Church Lady on WordPress), and because she has difficulty stopping.
