About the Author
Adrienne went from small town daydreamer to college graduate to Miss Kansas to New York City professional entertainer. Adrienne was on top of the world thanks to her attitude, work ethic, self-esteem, and big vision. Nevertheless, her formula for success would all-to-soon be put to the ultimate test.
After a tragic horsing accident she found herself with shattered dreams and a broken spirit. Her world had shifted from the grandest-of-dreams to the real-world reality of paying medical bills and questioning whether or not she would ever walk again.
Today Adrienne is a walking example of perseverance and overcoming the odds. She has documented her story of triumph over tragedy in her debut novel "Blood Sweat & Tiaras". Adrienne talks about success and failure, depression and attitude, life's obstacles and failures, and how good financial decisions really does create opportunity. Adrienne puts it all out there, helping teens and adults make the right decisions not based on peer pressure, but based on their personal expectations of themselves.
