Sarah Connelly comes originally from New York, where her family runs The Atlantic Ledger, a respected newspaper read throughout the Union states of the East coast. Convinced that The Tombstone Epitaph is the only paper that prints the truths others blind themselves to, she adopted the nom de plume “Lady Wilde” and set out for Arizona to seek employment.

Now she follows the bounty hunter, Darren Conrad, along with their companions, Handsome Pete and Professor Lazarus, as they seek out supernatural threats to eliminate and write stories about.
