Included new tidbits of Celtic and Druidic lore! Like the Native Americans, Celtic traditions were handed down through the generations. Explore legends and superstitions, find out how to make honey mead, hand-made soap, and learn about the Celtic astrological signs that are based on the Dryadic personalities of individual trees. Discover which sign you were born under, who your Celtic spirit animal guide is, and much more. "The spirit of Ireland shared in a delightfully personal and entertaining little book." - Gerry Anderson, Radio Foyle Northern Ireland, author of Surviving Stroke City and Heads. "Lizzy's gone and collated the sayings and quirks she learned at her mother's knee in the Belfast of her childhood into an almanac of facts, stories, recipes and wisecracks that will keep you engaged and entertained through a sitting or two as well as throughout the year." - Jay Lake, author of A Trial of Flowers, Mainspring, and Kalimpura.

Caught in time... In the 21st century, humanity still believes they are alone in the universe. That changes. Temporal experiments from the future go wrong, and an innocent bystander, Catriona Logan, is suddenly thrust into a future where the Earth is a wasteland. Humanity now fights for the alien Leontors in a war against the reptoid Komodoans, in return for technology to re-terraform Earth. The war is at a stalemate. Catriona s unique 21st century brainwave patterns will ensure a victory to whoever can scan her first, and she becomes a pawn between the alien races. Captured, Catriona must unravel the threads of deceit and find a mysterious and compelling ally in a world where her rules no longer apply. Time is fractured and only Catriona can put it right, but at what cost?
