Adriana was born and raised in the Caribbean, but for the last fifteen years has let her job (and her spouse) take her all over the world. She loves writing stories about people who look and sound like her people, getting unapologetic happy endings.
 
When she’s not dreaming up love stories, planning logistically complex vacations with her family or hunting for discount Broadway tickets, she’s a trauma therapist in New York City, working with survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
 
Her Dreamers series has received starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly and Booklist and has been featured in The TODAY Show on NBC, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Library Journal and The Washington Post. Her debut, American Dreamer, was selected as one of Booklist’s Best Romance Debuts of 2019, and one of the Top 10 Romances of 2019 by Entertainment Weekly. Her third novel, American Love Story, was one of the winners in the first annual Ripped Bodice Award for Excellence in Romantic Fiction. Adriana is an outspoken advocate for diversity in romance and has written for Remezcla and Bustle about Own Voices in the genre. She’s one of the co-creators of the Queer Romance PoC Collective. Represented by Taylor Haggerty at  Root Literary. 

PRAISE FOR ADRIANA

Elizabeth Acevedo

National Book Award Winner for The Poet X

“[Adriana Herrera]  is writing some of my favorite Afro-Latinx characters and giving us beautiful love stories along the way.” 

Washington Post

“Incisive and modern, navigating the complexities of privilege, purpose and power, all while exploring intense passion.” 

Publisher’s Weekly (Starred Review)

“Herrera’s work remains compulsively readable. She crafts lively Latinx characters with instant, electric chemistry that sings on the page, and handles realistic relationship obstacles in a relatable manner.”

Entertainment Weekly

“With American Dreamer, Adriana Herrera positions herself as a fresh and vital new voice in romance.”

Suzanne Brockmann, New York Times bestselling Author

“Adriana Herrera writes romance with teeth—you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll be refreshed and inspired to fight even harder to create the vibrant, welcoming America in which her books are set."

Booklist, (Starred Review)

“Herrera not only dishes up plenty of muy caliente same-sex love scenes in her impressive, not-to-be-missed debut, which beautifully celebrates the rich diversity of life in the U.S., but she also excels at creating the kind of rich emotional connections between her protagonists that romance readers will find irresistible.”

Publisher’s Weekly

“Herrera’s entertaining first Dreamers romance is fueled by love, community and plenty of Afro-Caribbean food… An adorable delicious foray into hapless romance.”

K.J. Charles, bestselling author of “The Magpie Lord”

“A really impressive debut with heart, brain, and vibrant characters. I’m looking forward to the next story.”
