About the author

Brendan Gerad O'Brien


I was born in Tralee, Ireland and now live in Newport, South Wales. As a child I spent my summer holidays in Listowel, Co Kerry where my uncle Moss Scanlon had a Harness Maker’s shop. It was a magnet for all sorts of colourful characters, and it was there that my love of storytelling was kindled by the likes of John B. Keane and Bryan MacMahon, who often wandered in for a chat and bit of jovial banter. The numerous short stories I’ve written based on those characters have been published in various anthologies and eMags over the years. I have self-published twenty of them in a collection called Dreamin’ Dreams  and also as stand-alone stories with Amazon.com.
My first novel, a thriller set in Wales during WW2, is called Dark September   Gallows Field  is my second thriller and is also set in WW2, only this time in Ireland.
A Pale Moon Was Rising is a follow up thriller involving Eamon Foley again.   Footsteps is my latest thriller.
