Author Lexie Conynghamabout this book: A Wolf at the Gate is the second book in my Orkneyinga Murders series, set in Viking times in Orkney – and it has some insights into the clash between the world of the old gods and the world of the new religion, Christianity. I wrote this book because when I had finished the first book in the series, Tomb for an Eagle, I wasn't finished with my main characters, busy and impoverished woolworker Sigrid and her old friend Ketil, who serves the Earl Thorfinn. I knew a large dog would feature in it – I dedicated it to my friend's German Shepherds! – and asked my illustrator to include a dog on the cover. I've really worked hard to try to get the historical period right, reading archaeological reports, going to university courses, and going through dozens of textbooks, but I hope the finished novel isn't heavy because of it. Writing these books is a lovely excuse to visit Orkney, too!
