Robin Herne

Robin Herne
Robin is a storyteller, poet, artist, dog-owner, lupophile, obsessive Dr Who fan, and Druid. He has written numerous articles for Pagan magazines (such as Pagan Dawn, Many Gods-Many Voices, & Dragonswood), Interfaith books (˜Pagan Pieces), and had poems included in the work of other authors (Galina Krasskova's ˜Full Fathom Five"). He has also contributed crime fiction to anthologies, appeared in television documentaries, and is a regular broadcaster with BBC Radio Suffolk. He regularly speaks at Interfaith seminars, Pagan conventions, and other events as both a lecturer and a storyteller. He currently lives in Suffolk, England and is a founder member of both the Druid group Clan Ogma and the Ipswich Pagan Council (founded in 1994 and still going strong). He is also proud to be the first winner of the title Chief Bard of the Fens! Having written his first crime anthology, he is now working on a series of crime novels.
