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 currently resides in Arkansas with her daughter. Formerly an RN, she now writes and publishes her stories full time. She is a also a motivational speaker.

Carla Foster is still reeling from what she calls “the ultimate betrayal” of catching her husband in the midst of his infidelity. Now, seemingly stuck in marital limbo, she finally decides to move on with her life only to find herself face-to-face with a monster. As her life begins to crumble, she wonders if things will ever get better. Will Carla be able to find healing and eventually, love?

In Jan. 2014, Jackie Vernon-Thompson, Founder and President of From the Inside-Out School of Etiquette LLC, was inspired by the Holy Spirit to create a school that teaches girls to perform at their optimum. In our fast-paced society, there is a definite need for this service.
Jackie has earned a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Business focusing on Communications. A certified Etiquette Consultant for the International community, Jackie has worked with girls in the urban and suburban communities for many years and is blessed with the ability to meet each girl where she is in order to be effective. For several years, she has been afforded the opportunity to conduct etiquette skills and self-enhancement workshops at her church for a girl’s group called the Pearlettes.
From the Inside-Out School of Etiquette LLC works with each girl internally, with her attitude, what she thinks of herself, the standards she has set for herself and any self-inflicting faults created. Once those concerns and others are addressed, there is a strong possibility that she will be a changed young lady, for the better, from the inside out. Jackie also believes in philanthropy and has, in many cases, shared her gift of teaching etiquette and self-enhancement classes at various venues. It is her prayer that every lesson taught will resonate with each girl for life.
Parents today are experiencing such busy schedules and sometimes do not have the opportunity to teach their daughters the necessary etiquette and life skills. The desire of every parent is that their daughter grows to become a well-rounded, respectful young lady and one who will superbly perform in any environment. Unfortunately, the day just doesn’t seem to have enough hours. "Where did the time go?" you ask yourself. Let From the Inside Out School of Etiquette, LLC. be a part of the village to raise your daughter.
