The Website of Peadar Ó Guilín

Hello! Welcome! Ben venuto! Tá fáilte romhat!

Who is Peadar?

Irish writer Peadar Ó Guilín is the author of the YA novel, The Call, inspired by the beautiful northwest of Ireland where he grew up. The Invasion, a sequel to The Call and the end of the duology, was published in March 2018.

In September 2007, Peadar published his first novel, The Inferior, which the Times Educational Supplement called "a stark, dark tale, written with great energy and confidence and some arresting reflections on human nature."  Foreign editors liked it too, and over the coming year it is to be translated into eight languages, including Japanese and Korean.

His fantasy and SF short stories have appeared in numerous venues, including Black Gate magazine and an anthology celebrating the best of the iconic Weird Tales.

Peadar is represented by Molly Ker Hawn of The Bent Agency.

Movie rights for The Call are handled by Caitlin Friedman of Scholastic Entertainment Inc.

Pronounce Peadar's Name -- Like a pro!

Peadar rhymes with "blather", or "ladder". Either is fine by me!

Ó is pronounced like "Oh"

Guil -- is pronounced like the "gill" of a fish.

Ín is pronounced like "een" and rhymes with "bean".

And so, we have: Padder Oh Gilleen. Congratulations!
