PITTSTON — Adriane Marrin has lived a peculiar life.
So much so, several years ago she decided to tell her story by writing a screenplay called “Adrianne’s Warehouse.” That screenplay is now available on book shelves for all readers.
“Before it became published, I worked on this for a couple of years,” Marrin said. “This actually came out in 2010 as a movie and it was put up in a well-known theater in New York City.”
The movie was shown in the Leonard Nimoy Thalia.
According to a summary of the story, “Adrianne’s Warehouse” tells the story of a young woman who is chasing her dreams after surviving struggles no one should be forced to endure.
Through her bravery, she learns many life lessons about trust and friendship.
Marrin said the book is about 60 percent fiction, 40 percent non-fiction and the characters are based off people in her life, particularly her ex-husband and siblings.
“I had a bad brother, and I didn’t have a good sister,” she said.
Marrin was born in Marin County, California but raised in Montclair, New Jersey and commuted to and from New York City.
“That’s where the film jobs and everything and soap operas, and museums and places I liked to visit were,” she said.
It was during her time in New York City she met her ex-husband.
After her divorce, she won a $35,000 settlement and moved to Pennsylvania, eventually settling in Pittston in 2012.
The book was published through Dorrance Publishing Co. and is available on Amazon.com and at Barnes & Noble.
“Adrianne’s Warehouse” is the first of three films with the other two being “Adrianne’s Castle” and “Adrianne’s Truth.”
Marrin portrays Adrianna in all three movies and they’re available for viewing on IMDB and YouTube.
She’s currently working on the screenplays for two more in the Adrianne series — “Adrianne’s Move” and “Adrianne’s Bed and Breakfast.”
“There’s about six or seven of them, at least,” she said.
It took several years for “Adrianne’s Warehouse” to be converted into a book, and Marrin said she’s looking to convert “Adrianne’s Castle” and “Adrianne’s Truth” to books, too.
“I would probably say, with some luck, that it would probably (start) in October,” Marrin said. “But, then I’d have to start the process and that would take another year. So, probably 2019 (they’ll be on book shelves.)”
