Recommended to join the Society at her first Swanwick by the late Daphne Moss and Betty Terrmar, Bradley became a member in 1987. Voted onto the Council in 2003, she was Minute Secretary for a year, after which she became responsible for outings. Prior to the publication of her first book, The Apothecary's Gift, Bradley had a number of short stories published, and had achieved success in competitions both in the UK and abroad. She has now produced her second novel, To Thine Own Self, a historical novel set in the Commonwealth period, which will be published by Matador Publishing, and has completed the follow up, The Yoke of Heaven, which she hopes to see published shortly.  Apart from fiction writing, Bradley has worked professionally as an editor, a proof reader, and a reviewer of both fiction and non-fiction.
