Here’s the set-up:
When Koty Fowler’s husband volunteers her to visit Jamie, a quadruple amputee who lost his limbs in Iraq, neither Koty nor Jamie is happy. Jamie resents being “babysat” every day. Koty resents her lot in life: almost 30, mother of three, and trapped in an unhappy marriage in Granite Creek, a small New Hampshire town. But when Koty and Jamie come together in a sexually-charged situation, everything changes.While Koty continues to explore her relationship with Jamie, her life at home spirals out of control: her sometimes-abusive husband drinks too much, and her middle daughter is on a destructive path, skipping school and getting into fights, while Koty’s other two girls are left to watch. What happens next, however, leaves everyone reeling, and the Fowler family must learn how to move forward, even as they struggle to understand what happened in their own backyard.

Told in multiple viewpoints and spanning across nearly two decades, What Happened in Granite Creek brings readers on a journey of intrigue and unexpected twists while reminding us that nothing is ever what it seems.

Behind the Scenes with Robyn Bradley

What Happened in Granite Creekfeatures a disabled character, Jamie Briggs. Jamie is a quadruple amputee who lost his limbs while serving in Iraq. When I began writing the novel, there was only one surviving quad amputee from the war — that’s how extensive of an injury it is. As of right now, I know of at least two (there may be more), and both are living full lives, according to media reports.I never consciously set out to write a story featuring a disabled character…it just happened. But people within the communities that support and advocate for those with disabilities have been reaching out. It’s great to see people embracing my book, and it’s thrilling to realize the book is playing a role in showing how someone with a disability, even a disability as extensive as Jamie’s, can live a full and happy life.

One community in particular that has shown the story a lot of love is the devotee community. If you’re curious to know what a devotee is, I encourage you to check out my blog post “Serendipity & Devotees,” which provides more details. I was fortunate that someone from the devotee community — a woman who is married to a double-leg amputee — reached out to me before I published What Happened in Granite Creek (she had read my short story upon which the novel is based). This wonderful woman provided much needed insider information on the day-to-day lives of amputees, info that helped me make Jamie’s character all that more authentic.

I’m hoping this tidbit has intrigued you and that you’ll consider downloading What Happened in Granite Creek to your Kindle. Happy reading!

“This is one of those books that I don’t encounter often enough – pulls you in from the very beginning and makes you put everything else aside so you can keep reading! Loved the story, the writing is wonderful, characters are well developed and you really feel their emotions. And I love the way the storytelling changes in the middle of the book from the main character to the point of view of the other characters. Twists and turns, keeps you guessing, didn’t want it to end! Can’t wait for the next book from this author!”
