Author Biography

Discovered inside a brown paper bag left on a toilet seat in a Rochester, New York, bar-and-grill washroom, newborn A. K. Driggs made headlines from the start. Adopted by a loving couple, she continued making waves on her extraordinary life journey—animal communicator, musical prodigy, bisexual lover, phone-sex superstar, recording artist...

Welcome to the colorful world of A. K. Driggs. From abandonment and betrayal to unconditional love and trust, Abandoned in Search of Rainbows chronicles Driggs’s incredible life. Her provocative, often sizzling, candor lets us experience the whole spectrum of emotions as Driggs searches for a meaningful life.

By finally finding her place in the world—personally and professionally, romantically and sexually, musically and spiritually—Driggs illuminates a magical path for each of us to follow to get there too. As she says in her song, “I Found the Rainbow”:

In perfect harmony
My answers are clear.
With my eyes finally open

And now I can see. For I found the rainbow and the rainbow is... ME.

Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite

What a life! That was my exact thought when I finished reading Abandoned in Search of Rainbows by author A.K. Driggs. Found as an infant in a brown paper bag on a toilet seat, the story of her arrival in the world made the news from the very beginning. She was adopted by a loving family, and her journey went from abandonment to the life she was meant to lead. Living an incredible life, experiencing incredible vocations, from animal communicator to phone sex operator, from recording artist to author, A.K. Driggs seems to have done it all. This fascinating autobiography delves into the idea that even those with the saddest of beginnings can end up with the most fulfilling of lives.

I so enjoyed Abandoned in Search of Rainbows. There are some stories that just grab a person from the get-go, and this was definitely one for me. Author A.K. Driggs has certainly written her autobiography in such a way that readers will be completed engrossed in her story, but will also get a lot of personal meaning and thought provoking moments along the way. The idea that an innocent newborn could be left in such dire straits, but that the same person could evolve into such a unique, talented and multi-dimensional person is a wonder. I recommend Abandoned in Search of Rainbows to any reader who loves autobiographies or just a great story. Author A.K. Driggs is certainly an author to watch. While this book is autobiographical in nature, I can certainly see her using her talents and interesting life experiences to write a great work of fiction as well. If she does, I will certainly be in line to read it!
