Author Spotlight (Adrienne Thompson)

I know it's been a while, I took a little hiatus from blogging. To start 2012 right, I'd like to put the author spotlight on my sister & fellow author, Adrienne Thompson.

Married at sixteen, a mother twice by seventeen, and thrice a mother and divorced by twenty-four, Adrienne Thompson is no stranger to adversity. Not your typical teenage mother, she went on to complete her college degree and to earn her nursing license. She attributes God’s faithfulness as the catalyst for her success in life. Now, having raised two children as a divorced mother, with a third fast approaching adulthood, she is sharing a long hidden talent and passion with the world. Using the lessons that life has so expertly taught her as a guideline (betrayal, abusive relationships, self-esteem issues, witnessing the deteriorating effects of drug abuse), she has created stories that will both entertain and inspire the reader. Adrienne is the author of two novels, Bluesday and Been So Long. When she's not writing, she works as a Registered Nurse and resides in Arkansas with her daughter.
