My bio states that I am a Celebrity Ghostwriter, book publishing expert, playwright, film director and CEO of 13th & Joan Publishing House. If you ask me, I’m a bonafide Storyteller! My clients include VH1, MTV, WETV, BRAVO, BET, CENTRIC, YouTube, the NFL, Grammy Award-winning artists, as well as a bevy of entrepreneurs and everyday heroes. As the product of a single-parent home and childhood survivor of domestic violence, I recognized at an early age that there is infinite power in the art of storytelling.
I wrote and published my first book at the age of ten and on that day, I also learned that stories could be monetized. This lesson allowed me to embark upon a writing career that has spanned thirty years and launch a six-figure business with words. After telling stories for over three decades, serving as a pioneer in the literary industry, writing and publishing seventeen books per year as an acclaimed celebrity ghostwriter, authoring of over thirty books and coaching hundreds of aspiring writers across the finish line to become published authors, believe me when I say that I know a thing or two about telling stories.
I’ve witnessed the power of storytelling in my personal life and in the lives of my clients who after receiving my coaching have gone on to earn royalties and residual income, paid speaking engagements, corporate endorsements, sponsorships, radio and television appearances, countless media features and the list goes on. I simply believe and affirm that words have power.
The Storytellers Inner Circle is my pledge to ensure that storytellers have access to a tribe from which to exchange ideas and thrive, acquire the skills to tell compelling stories and cultivate income generating brands.

Ardre gets the job done. Her writing left me on the edge of my seat, wanting to read more.

Ardre encouraged me to tell a part of my story that I had never even thought of. I could not have finished my book without her help.

I’ve worked with the greats in the music industry like Berry Gordy and Lionel Richie. Ardre Orie has that same greatness as a writer. She has this ability to pull the best out of you.
