Tatiana Niculescu Bran is a Romanian writer and former senior editor of the Bucharest Romanian Bureau of the BBC WS. She previously worked for 8 years as a radio presenter and producer of the World Service in London. Her non fiction novel Deadly Confession (Spovedanie la Tanacu) was published in 2006 by Humanitas Publishing House. It was followed by Judges’ Book (Cartea Judecatorilor). A second edition and e-book of Deadly Confession were issued by Polirom Publishing House in 2012. The novels caused a sensation in her native country and inspired the film director Cristian Mungiu who produced and directed the film Beyond the Hills based on the same novels. The film won the award for the best screenplay at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. In 2007 a stage version of the books directed by the American-Romanian director Andrei Serban was performed at La MaMa Theatre in New York. In 2008, the theatre performance was staged in Paris at the Béhague Palace. Peter Brook and Pascal Bruckner attended the performance.

In December 2014, Klaus Iohannis, the incoming President of Romania, named her as his press secretary.[1] She resigned the following April, citing an unsatisfactory relationship with the press.[2]

In 2011 Tatiana Niculescu Bran wrote the political novel The Nights of the Patriarch.

In 2012 Polirom Publishing House published her novel In the Land of God, an African story about the ritual of young girls' genital mutilation.
