Show Notes

Adrea L. Peters

For nearly two decades, Adrea stole any free moment she could from her hectic consulting career to write stories and articles that included her obsessions: love, physics, food, wellness, logic, grace, cleverness, wordplay, and imagining the best of herself and others.

She graduated valedictorian with a journalism degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and later earned a Masters in Popular Fiction Writing from Seton Hill University. In 2020, she published the first two novels from her Becoming Truitt Skye trilogy. The third of the series will be released on March 23, 2023. She also published the Quantum Collection, which includes her award-winning bestseller, Quantum Thinking, a collection of affirmations to ignite possibility within the reader. Quantum Thinking and When I Go Outside, I Go Inside were both selected for the 2021 Academy Award gift bags given to all the nominees for Best Actress, Actor, Director, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress.

She was honored as one of the Top 500 Entrepreneurs for 2021 by Brainz Magazine. The award winners, which included Oprah, Jay Sheety, Mel Robbins, Jessica Alba, and many more, were recognized for their entrepreneurial success, achievements, and dedication to helping others. Adrea leads the Enterprise Application Architecture team for the University of California, Irvine, and lives in the woods of Vermont.
