Sadie Conall

Some of my readers have asked if Sadie Conall is a pen name and I thought I’d take some time away from writing to answer that.  The short answer is yes, it is a pen name.  The long answer is that Sadie is a nickname a well loved family member calls me.  The name Conall came about through my love of everything Celtic, for my great grandparents were Irish and my mother was born in Shropshire near the border of Wales.  I wanted a Celtic name to use as a surname (despite already having an Irish surname and a first name that has Welsh origins), and after some research settled on Conall (pronounced in the lovely Irish lilt of Con-L or Con-ELLE, not ConALL).  It means strong  wolf, or mighty warrior.  I thought it fitting when writing about a strong independent young French girl who lived in the wilderness of the New World in the late 1700’s with the Bannock and a pure white wolf!

  1. Hi Christine, I’m hoping to publish When the Wolf Dreams within the next two days. This book has taken me longer than I thought and every time I’ve thought it finished, something else happened to pull me back into the story. I’ve completely gone past all my deadlines but hopefully you’ll think it worth it!
