Juniper Mackenzie was an unwed mother of a teen-aged girl. She was the high priestess of the Singing Moon Coven. She rose to a position of power and eminence after leading small band of people, who styled themselves "Clan Mackenzie," through the dying time right after the Change.
Juniper was singing at Dennis Martin's tavern, when the lights went out. After a confrontation with a gang led by Eddie Liu, Juniper realized that the only safe course of action was to get out of Corvallis and go to her cabin in the foothills of the Cascade Range.
Juniper meets up with her coven at a country home in the foothills that her great uncle gave her in his will. They gradually gather other people and form the Clan Mackensie. They fight off a small set of foragers from the remnants of the state government and a much larger attack from a would-be baron from the Portland Protective association
After stabilizing somewhat, Juniper decides to lead a small scouting mission into the Williamette Valley to see how bad things are. She meets a similar scouting mission led by Mike Havel, and in a one night stand, gets pregnant by him.
Together with the Bearkillers, Central Oregon Ranchers Association, and forces from Corvallis, she and Havel plan and carry out the destruction of two forts planted in the pass between the Mackenzie territories and the ranchers from the Oregon interior.

Juniper attended meetings and celebrations at Larsdalen on the eighth anniversary of the Change. She then returned to Dun Juniper, where she met with Laurel Wilson and accepted Laurel and her independent coven into Clan Mackenzie. The tension between her and Signe Havel over Juniper and Mike Havel having had a child together continued.
Juniper attended festivities at Sutterdown, partially as cover for a raid the Mackenzies were launching into the Barony of Molalla. Juniper led the raid which resulted in part with the capture of Mathilda Arminger. While returning to Dun Juniper, the party of Mackenzies stumbled upon a battle between Bearkillers and a gang. Afterward, Juniper told Mike and Signe about having taken Mathilda.
She was pleased some time later when Mike acknowledged Rudi Mackenzie as his son after Signe had encourged Rudi to ride a horse believed to be a man-killer but which Rudi recognized from a previous life as Epona.
