Deanna "D. J." Conway (1939 - February 1, 2019[1][2]) was a non-fiction author of books in the field of magic, Wicca, Druidism, shamanism, metaphysics and the occult, and the author of three fantasy novels. Born in Hood River, Oregon to a family of Irish, North Germanic, and Native North American descent, she studied the occult and Pagan religion for over thirty years.[3] In 1998 she was voted Best Wiccan and New Age author by Silver Chalice,[4] a Neo-Pagan magazine.
