I'M ARDRE ORIE

As a writer, I specialize in identifying the heart of every story I am blessed to tell so that they are grounded in their roots and amplified in their message. My three decades of writing include a host of clients, including the WNBA, NBA, NFL, MTV, WETV, BRAVO, BET, CENTRIC, OWN, VH1, and YouTube, Grammy Award-winning artists, political activists, and politicians, as well as a bevy of entrepreneurs and everyday heroes.

My love of writing began when I wrote and published my first book at the age of 10, highlighting accomplished Black women in my community to ensure representation.

As a product of a single-parent home and a childhood survivor of domestic violence, I recognized that there was great power in the transparency of pain that manifests into stories of triumph. 

READ MY STORY
I want to thank Ardre Orie for working with me to finish my memoir It's a lot of work. My life is so full, so keeping me focused, reading and writing everyday is a real task. Working together has forced me to be a stronger writer and open Pandora's box. You are appreciated Ardre!"
