USA Today bestselling author ADRIANA HERRERA was born and raised in the Caribbean, but for the last 15 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.

Her debut Dreamers, has been featured on Entertainment Weekly, NPR, the TODAY Show on NBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post and Oprah Magazine.

When she's not dreaming up love stories, planning logistically complex vacations with her family or hunting for discount Broadway tickets, she’s a social worker in New York City, working with survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

A masterpiece. And essential for queer Latinx.

“I’m a big fan. Don’t give me too much credit on my Latinx music prowess though; I discovered them in the whitest way possible.” At this all three of them turned to me with different versions of a look that said, “Oh, I can’t wait to hear this.” I paused for effect, then quickly muttered, “NPR.”

“I was not a romantic, but when Easton Archer looked at me like that I felt like I could invent a whole new life. Just so I could get to have him without conflicts or guilt, without the world getting in the way of this joy.”
Adriana Herrera, American Love Story

“Oh man, I wonder if the owner is Dominican. He kind of looked Dominican,” she said, tilting her head to the side. I laughed at her because Carmen was always on the hunt to spot a fellow Dominican, and yet never really made an effort to befriend any of the ones who lived in town. She said it was like having a fire extinguisher, it’s reassuring to know it’s there, but you don’t need to carry one around all the time.”
Adriana Herrera, American Dreamer
