More About the Author
In her teenage years she moved to London to study for a Drama degree, after which she spent some years working full time in theatre and occasionally in television.
She wrote her first two short stories after her two children were born, when she gave up the Theatre and became a full-time mother, writing at night when the world and her children were asleep; both stories won prizes.
She then began her first novel, "TREAD SOFTLY ON MY DREAMS", based on the true story of the young Irish hero, Robert Emmet.
Published by Headline, and critically acclaimed by the Press, TREAD SOFTLY ON MY DREAMS was acquired in Hardback by the University of Notre Dame in the USA, and The Princess Grace Irish Library in the Palace of Monaco, and gained her an award from The Royal Literary Society in London. This was followed by her second successful Irish biographical novel, "FIRE ON THE HILL".
Gretta's writing career was interrupted in full flow when her son broke his back in an accident and needed her care for some years. Now fully recovered, her son is a successful young actor and Gretta has returned to a full-time career as a professional writer: GHOSTS IN SUNLIGHT; BY EASTERN WINDOWS, THE FAR HORIZON, JARVISFIELD, THE WAYWARD SON.
Throughout 2014 and 2015 she has been working on her latest series of novels (The Byron Series) of which the first three have just been published. 'A STRANGE BEGINNING' (1); 'A STRANGE WORLD' (2) 'MAD, BAD and DELIGHTFUL TO KNOW' (3)
Her writing programme of books for 2016 are already plotted and in process. Book 4 in The BYRON Series - 'A RUNAWAY STAR' will be published in Spring 2016.
"I only write about people worth writing about --" Gretta Curran Browne.
Gretta is married to a lawyer and lives in London.

Emmet's speech from the dock at his trial would become an inspiration to later generations seeking Irish freedom. "We fight that all of us might have our country, and, that done, each of us shall have our religion," he said, ending with, "When my country takes her place among the nations of the earth, then, and not till then, let my epitaph be written."
All in all a great book which is well worth tracking down.
