What Happened in Granite Creek, Robyn Bradley (2011)

Framingham author Robyn Bradley's latest novel, ''What Happened in Granite Creek'', (2011)

FRAMINGHAM, MA - In June I wrote about Framingham author Robyn Bradley, on the release of her first novel, "Forgotten April".

Without retelling that entire article, I'll mention again, Robyn is the youngest of six children, an only girl with five older brothers, that she graduated from Framingham North High in 1991, and that her inspiration to become an author came in Mrs. Shea's 4th grade class at the Charlotte Dunning School.

Jumping forward some twenty eight years after getting "three red stars" on a life changing writing assignment from Mrs. Shea, we find Bradley an accomplished writer, able to weave hard-to-put-down tales which take the reader inside the minds and lives of the characters she creates.

Filed under: Arts / Culture by Randy Harris at 2:05 pm on June 16, 2011

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Growing up the youngest of six children, an only girl with five older brothers, Robyn Bradley escaped into a world she created with pen and paper. She traces her ambition to become an author back to Mrs. Shea's 4th grade class at the Charlotte Dunning School, when a writing assignment earned her praise ...and three red stars.

After graduating from Framingham North High in 1991, Robyn detoured slightly from the written to the spoken word, and put in six years full time at radio station Magic 106.7, (followed by another seven years working there part-time). But she kept finding herself ...[read more]
