Adrienne Martini

Writer · Oneonta, New York

The New York Times called Somebody’s Gotta Do It, Adrienne Martini’s most recent book, “50 percent memoir, 50 percent advice manual and 100 percent heart.” She’d love to talk with you about the importance of running for elected office or about all of the drama of holding a seat on the Board of Representatives in Otsego County, New York. 

Adrienne also is the author of Hillbilly Gothic: A Memoir of Madness and Motherhood and Sweater Quest: My Year of Knitting DangerouslyThe latter is an account of Adrienne’s year-long hero’s journey to knit Alice Starmore’s famous Tudor Roses sweater. Adrienne blogs when the spirit moves her at Martini Made.
