Adriana Girolami was born in Rome, Italy. Her creative, artistic nature was apparent as a child; she even delighted in drawing pictures on the pristine sands of Italy's coast line during beach outings.
She immigrated with her family to the United States and later attended The Art Students League in New York City. Soon she embarked on a successful career as a portrait artist and illustrator, but always longed for the freedom of the written word. An avid reader, she favors distinguished, historical authors such as Sir Walter Scott and Adriana's personal favorite, Alexander Dumas.
She wrote her debut novels, The Templar Trilogy containing Mysterious Templar, The Crimson Amulet and Templar's Redemption. Being a professional artist, she made the illustrations for the cover of the books.
She jogs faithfully, plays racquetball and has a black belt in Kenpo Karate. She loves to travel and has visited many different countries throughout the world.
