Meet Your Instructor

Adrienne deWolfe has written six #1 bestselling Romance novels for Bantam, Avon, and ePublishing Works. A former newspaper journalist and corporate publicist, she has earned more than 40 awards for writing excellence.

When Adrienne’s not writing, she indulges in her other passions, literacy and education. Currently, she manages the Women in Leadership Advisory Board for one of the nation’s top universities. 

The Inspiration for Adrienne’s Courses

Adrienne has delivered Romance-writing workshops across the country. During one of these speaking events, the students of a Texas college approached her. They were frustrated with their Creative Writing courses, which weren’t adequately preparing them to sell Romance novels to Legacy Publishers.

Within months, Adrienne was hired as an adjunct faculty member by that college, where she began teaching her Romance-writing curriculum to sell-out crowds.

Adrienne’s Publisher Asked for Her Help

Eventually, Adrienne’s publisher asked her to review the manuscripts of several aspiring authors. He described these authors as having “potential;” however, he wasn’t ready to contract them.

Adrienne agreed to privately mentor these authors. She showed them how to “fix” their manuscripts for the commercial marketplace.

Several months later, her publisher reported that those same authors had sent him “phenomenal” rewrites, and that their books were earning 4+ stars on Amazon. Thus, Adrienne’s private mentorship program was born.

The Road to Bestsellerdom

Adrienne’s own fiction debut occurred with Bantam’s release of Texas Outlaw, the first book in her bestselling Wild Texas Nights series.

Texas Outlaw broke industry records in paperback when it was nominated for two Rita Awards by the published authors of Romance Writers of America (RWA).

In ebook, the Wild Texas Nights series remained on Kindle’s Top 100 list for seven months. Book 3 in the series, Texas Wildcat, was named the Best Historical Romance of the Year by Calico Trails Magazine. 

Since that time, Adrienne’s books have earned a variety of distinctions, including six awards for characterization.

Adrienne’s current fiction projects include a Contemporary Christmas Romance, and the third book in her bestselling series, Lady Law and the Gunslinger. 

“Adrienne is excellent at teaching the commercial aspects of writing. I had an author come to us with a novel that was not commercially viable. I sent her to Adrienne for coaching. This author came back with a phenomenal re-write. The book was just recently released and is pulling excellent reviews, averaging 4.6 stars at Amazon.”
