Writing Career

Publishing her first novel back in 1993, Gretta Mulrooney would make her literary debut with the title ‘A Can of Worms.’ This title was a Young Adult book for younger readers, as she would later settle in to publishing her much loved thriller novels. Bringing out a number of stand-alone titles prior to starting her series, she would prove herself to be adept at several different genres.

In 2015 she would begin her ‘Tyrone Swift’ series of novels with the mystery ‘The Lady Vanished,’ and, in 2019, she started her ‘Detective Inspector Siv Drummond’ series with ‘The Little Lies.’ Both of these series would establish her as a mystery novelist, along with publishing collections and omnibus editions of her work as well.
