PLEASED TO MEET YOU.
I'M ARDRE ORIE,
I’ve always believed that every ending in our lives, is the start of a beautiful new beginning.
As a Celebrity Memoirist, 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 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 product of a single-parent home and childhood survivor of domestic violence, I recognized that there was great power in the transparency of pain that could be leveraged through the act of storytelling. My three decades of writing includes 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 goal as a writer is to allow the voices of those who have suffered from oppressive circumstances to be heard and to create meaningful narratives that feeds our souls and chronicles our experiences.
Prior to taking a leap of faith towards entrepreneurship, I attended Florida State University where I earned both my undergraduate and Master’s Degrees in Special Education. After teaching for 4 years, I went on to earn an Ed.S in Educational Leadership.
Today, I reside in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, two daughters, and a loving son in college and work daily to bring compelling memoirs and screenplays to life.
As a Celebrity Memoirist, a significant part of my days are devoted to interviewing my clients. I'd like to say we're in candid, compelling conversation with one another. Amidst these honest exchanges, the best untold stories emerge. Stories that enlighten, inspire and those that have the power to change the way we see ourselves and the world.
Tune in each month for a new episode of Anecdotes with Ardre Orie as I share some of the most intimate moments and interesting stories with you. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll finish each episode motivated to live life more authentically.WATCH THE LATEST EPISODE
