Druidic Dawn Druidic Dawn

Druidic Dawn is non-affiliated to any Druid Association, Group, Order or Individual. It will be seeking an independent non-profit status in the near future. Overall it’s working towards becoming a social enterprise for the Global Druid Community. It is a balance, between a non-profit business model and Druidic working. The visible elements presented here are celebrating the diversity of its many Druidic Paths.


The Fox Cover The Fox

The Fox is a historical novel that contains adventure, ancient Celtic beliefs, sacrifice, love of family, ancient and modern culture, and divorce. Have you ever wondered who your ancestors were? How did they live? How did they die? Most of us do.

Genealogy is a huge business. Curiosity about our bloodlines, our past, makes us want to go back as far as possible. But, genealogy can only go back as far as there are written records. What if you had a chance to find a connection to ancient roots? To someone who lived two thousand years ago? Proof you could touch and hold in your hand? 

Aine Macrea has that chance. She is the archaeologist who is on the search for a vision. Jahna has come to her and lead her to discoveries.


In The Fox, you will follow the lives of Jahna and Lovern, two people who lived in what is now Scotland, during the time of the invading Romans. The Romans threatened Jahna and Lovern, their clan and most importantly, the life of their child. They struggled to find a way to stop the coming invasion and in doing so, left traces of their lives.

Aine is working to rebuild her career and is led by instinct, or a vision (or is it a ghost?) to a hilltop in Scotland.

Follow their stories in my podcast novel The Fox, you can also buy this book at Amazon.
