Colm Keane is one of Ireland’s most successful authors, with eight No. 1 bestsellers and numerous top-five bestsellers to his credit. Colm Keane’s works include three No. 1 chart-toppers on the Italian stigmatic Padre Pio. A further study of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, which was co-written with his wife former RTÉ newsreader Una O’Hagan, also reached No. I in the non-fiction charts.
Colm and Una launched their latest publication, The Village of Bernadette: Lourdes, Stories, Miracles and Cures – The Irish Connection, in September 2019. The book features numerous Irish miracles and cures along with many Irish pilgrimages to the shrine including visits by a young John F. Kennedy, actress Grace Kelly, author Brendan Behan and poet Seamus Heaney. It also covers the life of St. Bernadette and her Irish connections.
Many of Colm’s other titles explore the mysteries of death and dying. They contain hundreds of personal testimonies concerning near-death experiences and deathbed visions. Critics have described the books as ‘fascinating,’ ‘extraordinary,’ ‘compelling’ and ‘fearlessly delving into the bowels of the unknown.’ Three of them – Going Home, We’ll Meet Again and Heading for the Light – were chart-toppers.
His groundbreaking book, Heading for the Light, was also a No. 1 bestseller and outlines the ten stages we go through when we die.
