Robbie was born on a farm near Big Flat, Arkansas. Her father died when she was only 4 years old and she grew up with her poor grandparents on another farm.

At the age of 15 she married Dwane Bransum. She gave birth to a daughter and divorced at the age of 25.

Her life took a major turn after the newsletter of her church, the Southern Baptist, printed an article she had written. Subsequently she decided to become an author. Her first book was Me and Jim Luke (1971). Branscum published 20 books in 20 years time. She worked with literary agent Barthold Fles. Branscum died from a heart attack in 1997 in her home in San Pablo, California.
