Meet the Author

As a Dallas native, Michael Granberry has been particularly intrigued by JFK's assassination, primarily its effect on the psyche of his hometown. He was a 6th-grader in Dallas when the assassination occurred. Several classmates were the children of either key eyewitnesses or law enforcement officers whose involvement and/or testimony became critical.

Michael has worked in LA and Washingon, D.C. During his time at The News, he has profiled actresses Renee Zellweger and Morgan Fairchild, brother-actors Owen and Luke Wilson, playwright Beth Henley, CBS newsman Scott Pelley, hockey great Brett Hull and Dallas Cowboys Daryl Johnston and Dat Nguyen, who, at the time, was the only Vietnamese player in the National Football League.
