About Ellen Evert Hopman
Ellen Evert Hopman is a Master Herbalist and lay Homeopath who holds an M.Ed. in Mental Health Counseling. Ellen Evert Hopman is the author of a growing number of books.
Her first novel, Priestess of the Forest: A Druid Journey, was an exciting new project for her, combining a heart-warming third century Irish fictional romance with practical Druid rites and rituals. The sequel is called The Druid Isle in which the action moves to the Hebrides of Western Scotland. The third novel in the series is Priestess of the Fire Temple: A Druid’s Tale which explores the Pagan predecessor of Saint Brighid’s Fire Temple in Kildare. The three books are Bardic teaching tales that focus on the Three Realms of Land, Sea and Sky (Fire).
Ellen’s newest book The Secret Medicines Of Your Kitchen (October, 2012) has been lovingly illustrated and published by a London based publisher. Children and adults will enjoy the bright colors and easy how-to instructions for making home remedies.
