Born 1948 in Long Beach California, and raised in Columbus Nebraska -- 1960s radical Peace activist and Epic Records song-writer and recording artist turned author, Holy-Man, Humorist Wizard.

Known internationally as the best-selling author of books on magick and the occult, Lon Milo DuQuette is also gifted songwriter. Epic Records recording artist in the early 70\'s his material continues to inspire and provoke.

Author of 16 critically acclaimed books (translated into 12 languages) on Magick and the Occult, Lon Milo DuQuette is one of the most respected and entertaining writers and lecturers in the field of Western Hermeticism.

Since 1975 he as been a National and International governing officer of Ordo Templi Orientis, one of the most influential magical societies of the 20th Century. He is an internationally recognized authority on Tarot, Qabalah, and Western Ceremonial magick. Although he takes these subjects very seriously, he tries not to take himself too seriously. This rare combination of scholarship and humor has earned him in the last 20 years a unique and respected position in American spiritual and esoteric literature.

He is a prolific writer and his published works have been hailed by experts and novices alike for bringing and clarity to these most misunderstood subjects. One of his most popular works is the story of his own life as a practicing ceremonial magician, My Life with the Spirits. Futurist and best-selling author Robert Anton Wilson calls it \\\"the best all-around introduction to Western Occultism -- sane, sensible, down-to-earth and wonderfully witty.\\\" My Life with the Spirits\\\" and is currently the required text for two classes at DePaul University, Chicago.

Besides his own books (see below) his articles and essays appear in FATE MAGAZINE and numerous other magazines, journals and anthologies including \\\"Rebels and Devils\\\" alongside the works of William S. Burroughs, Robert Anton Wilson, Timothy Leary and Israel Regardie.

He teaches at the Omega Institute of Holistic Studies and is a faculty member of the Maybe Logic Academy. In 2008 his life was the subject of a television documentary on Canada\\\'s Vision Network (Enigma series).

DuQuette\\\'s wit and quirky writing style has been compared to that of Mark Twain and Robert Benchley, is reflected in his presentations and seminars before live audiences who describe the experience as a curious combination of mesmerizing information, laughter and terror.

He lives in Costa Mesa California with Constance, his wife of 43 years.
