Andrew M. Greeley (1928-2013) is an American author of mystery novels, family saga and non-fiction, but first and foremost, he is a Catholic priest. Greeley donates the income from his book sales to various causes, often helping out students and schools in Chicago and the Chicagoland area. He is the author of the Blackie Ryan, Nuala Anne McGrail, O’Malley Family and other series. He is a prolific author who claims that he “has never had an unpublished thought.” Unfortunately, the Father suffered a skull and orbital bone fracture in 2008, which ended up being the end of his career. He passed away in 2013.

Although he had been writing non-fiction since the ’60s, Andrew M. Greeley’s first work of fiction to be published was 1979’s The Magic Cup. Below is a list of Andrew M. Greeley’s books in order of when they were originally released:

    Fr. Greeley’s works are the reason I am an unrepentant catholic. “There’s nothing the world or the church itself do to a Catholic to make him/her leave the church or stop being catholic.” Once a catholic, is forever a catholic.

    Cardinal Sins, Cardinal virtues, White Smoke, Angels of september, Valentine, Contact with an Angel…..and many more, are some of my favorites.

    Thank you fore x-raying his life and times here, for some of us to learn more about his person and works.

    God bless you.
