Mary Stewart Adams is a Star Lore Historian, and host of the weekly public radio program and podcast The Storyteller's Night Sky. Through her research in spiritual science and her education in literary arts, Mary has developed a unique, humanities-based approach to understanding our relationship with the stars. Her work is further augmented by an extensive knowledge of ancient mythologies and fairy tales. Mary has traveled extensively in fulfillment of her mission to safeguard the human imagination by protecting our access to the night sky and its stories, and has received numerous honors for her work. As a global advocate for starry skies, she led the team that established the 9th International Dark Sky Park in the world in 2011, which later led to her home state of Michigan, protecting 35,000 acres of state land for its natural darkness. Mary's research in human biography and the stars began in 1981, when, at the propitious destiny moment that occurs in the life of the young adult, she opened her first book of mystery wisdom. Through her Mother Goose book project, Mary worked closely with her sister, artist and
illustrator Patricia Delisa.
Patricia Delisa attended art school at the University of Michigan, after which she pursued her dream of living in New York City. The third child of a large Midwestern family, and sister of star lore historian Mary Stewart Adams, Patricia's whimsical imagination was cultivated by her grandpa's stories and her oldest brother's trail of secret missions. Patricia's life in New York centered on the fashion industry through an active modeling career, as well as further schooling in design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, which led to design work on 7th Avenue. In addition to her innovative design and illustration work, Patricia designs a children's wear line, Cozy Cocoon.
