I'm Adelyn Sterling, writer of all things hopeful and stories full of magic. I live in Ohio with my husband and my cavalier, Theo. I've been a magazine editor, a purse saleswoman, a marketing associate for a major Pittsburgh newspaper, and a bagel store cashier. I've run an Etsy shop to fund a DIY addiction, but I'm now a part-time freelance writer and I write novels in my free time.

I grew up on a steady diet of Disney VHS's, Harry Potter books, and musical theater. I always loved stories (Drama, as my parents would tell you) but in 2013, I decided to write a novel. I never finished that novel, but I was hooked and haven't stopped writing since.

I immediately began sharing my writing on where I met some of my writing besties and started shaping my writings into something readable. In 2014, I joined the online writing community,, where I connected my work with readers around the world. There, my novel The Prince's Guide to True Love's Kiss won a Watty award in 2015 for "Best of HQ Love". In 2017, I was invited to be part of the Wattpad Stars program which aids in the development and mentorship of Wattpad's most promising writers.
