Lady Deedre Turner’s Biography

Lady Deedre is from the Scottish Highlands. She met a traveling bard form Ireland and married him. When she is not taking care of the children of our Shire or diligently working on Penfeathers, she occupies her time with learning many different things. Her interests though varied focus mostly on herbal studies, embroidery and weaving. She has taken up archery and likes live weapons throwing. Lady Deedre also loves to bake bread and make her own salt.

Lady Deedre went to her first event in The Kingdom of An Tir. Two years later in 2010 she joined the Society for Creative Anachronism in the Kingdom of Meridies. Deedre has been a member of the Shire of Ironstone and now she has found her home here in Phoenix Glade.
