Adrienne Brady was born in Burma and grew up in Surrey. Marriage and four children took care of her creative energies for a good number of years. An honours degree in English and History and a master’s degree in creative writing acted as a springboard for writing her own poetry and to satisfy a deep-rooted ambition for travel and travel writing. Since 1987 she has lived overseas in Singapore, Brunei, Libya and the Middle East taking opportunities to explore ancient and lost worlds as well as to capture them in words and on camera.
Based in Dubai from 1996–2006, her travel features were published regularly in Gulf newspapers and magazines. From a home base in Devon and more recently Dorset, she has continued to travel as well as completing three memoirs: life and travels in Libya under sanctions, travels throughout Oman and into Central Africa and a trilogy of adventures into Asia, the Gulf and Europe. On the Trail of Saint Paul focuses on a series of journeys made to those places that are a legacy to Saint Paul on his first and third missionary journeys and his final journey to Rome, as well as places that are a legacy to those who were influenced by his Word, primarily the Order of the Knights of Saint John and the Crusaders.
Adrienne Brady is also a prize-winning poet. She lives in Dorset.
