California native, Adrianne left Los Angeles and a corporate aerospace career behind for the quiet, sweeping desert vistas and mineral waters of California’s Spa City: Desert Hot Springs. Now she writes and explores the lows and highs of the SoCal desert: Coachella Valley to Joshua Tree. Here she indulges her passions: FWT, books, writing, photography, interior design, herbs, and Pinteresting. Adrianne is a Secretary/Officer of the Board of Directors for the International Food, Wine, Travel & Writers Association. She adores wine flights, testing recipes during cookbook reviews, real books, and full-heartedly advocates scenic road-trips that must include a Latte, shopping stretch breaks, and no corporate dining ~ local & street eats only, please.
