Adrianne is a native Californian and retired aerospace procurement professional whose career supported the development of military helicopters, jet fighters, and satellite programs. Now, she writes about and explores what’s going on in, and around her new hometown: California’s Spa City, Desert Hot Springs. She is an avid book and cookbook collector, loves photography, exterior & interior design, and Pinterest. Adrianne is a member of IFWTWA~International Food, Wine, Travel, Writers Association. She advocates overnight road-trips and "backyard travel" adventures. Why? Because many of us see the world in whirlwind vacations, but we never experience the magic that’s right around the corner in our own backyards!
