Scar de Courcier is a historian of witchcraft & the occult, and a psychologist of religion. She has spent several years researching pilgrimage, looking into different religious groups (mostly Catholics and Pagans) and their relationships to sacred spaces. Her first paper, Rise of Pilgrims on the Camino to Santiago: Sign of Change or Religious Revival?, was published in 2013. Scar's current research is on the intertwining histories of Christianity and Paganism.
As well as being a writer, Scar also runs a freelance agency called Bohemiacademia.
If you're thinking "Wait a minute, why is Scar's book about digital forensics?"... well, that's because for six years she was a private investigator specialising in computer crime, with a particular interest in child protection. Scar retired from active investigation in 2017, but still writes and consults on the subject.
In her spare time, Scar enjoys reading, swimming, singing, drinking wine, writing songs, poetry, and Star Trek.
