Student returns to alma mater as an author

December 13, 2013

Adrianna Lockhart, a former Fernandez ES student and current 8th grader, returned to her alma mater to talk about the book that recently wrote and got published.

“The Adventures of Hayden and Nikki” can be purchased at, Half-Price Books on Bandera Road, and downloaded to Kindle. She spoke to the fourth grade students about how she accomplished this and to encourage students to reach for their dreams.

The book is about orphaned prince Hayden who escaped his cruel uncle, and a chance meeting with Nikki, a peasant girl who is determined to find her grandfather, and their adventures together.

Lockhart donated $2 of each book sold to the Fernandez ES Reading Department.
