Local Author Ellen E. Sutherland will be here to launch her second book in her Jamie Poole series ‘Resurrection of the Druidess’ March 7th.

Two women. Two tied destinies. Two millennia.
One enigmatic sword.

Jamie Poole’s destiny is to help the Departed. She hears dead people. They cry on the wind, begging for help and vindication. They visit like the grandmotherly ghost who foretold a year ago things would happen.
Then Jamie and her dad accidentally resurrected an ancient Celtic woman named Eliyana using a magical sword. Turns out she’s not just Celtic, she’s a Druidess haunted by her past…

Ellen will also have copies of her first novel in the series ‘The Isle of Osiris‘. There will also be artwork available from the author.
***This event is cash only to the author.
