About Adrienne

Adrienne Thorne grew up on a steady diet of country music and Catholicism, so her writing ranges from fun cowboy sh*t to lighthearted explorations of faith and family life. Adrienne’s writing accomplishments include a spec feature sale and a produced feature script, as well as a recent writing assignment co-writing an indie feature. When she’s not writing, she’s busy navigating through the non-stop adventure of life with the autistic and other neurodiverse traits that she and most of her five children live with.
