Warren Adler Career

Adler was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Fritzie and Sol Adler. His parents were Russian Jewish immigrants. He graduated from P.S. 91, Brooklyn Technical High School, New York University, and attended the New School. Among his classmates were Mario Puzo and William Styron. In 2009, Adler was the recipient of the "Alumni of the Year" honor at NYU's College of Arts and Science and was also the founder of the Jackson Hole Writer's Conference, WY. During his residence in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Adler was Chairman of the Library Board.

After graduating from NYU with a degree in English literature, Adler worked for the New York Daily News before becoming editor of the Queens Post weekly. During the Korean War, he served in the US Army in the Pentagon as the Washington Correspondent for Armed Forces Press Service. Before his success as a novelist, Adler had a career as an entrepreneur. He owned four radio stations and a TV station, and founded and ran his own advertising and public relations agency in Washington, D.C.; his firm Warren Adler Ltd. was responsible for advertising and PR campaigns for political candidates, businesses and communities. Among his clients was the Watergate complex, which Adler named. He closed his agency in 1974 after the publication of his first novel, Undertow, and devoted himself to a writing career. He sponsored the Warren Adler Short Story contest on the Web.

Writing career

Adler wrote The War of the Roses and Random Hearts. The War of the Roses was adapted into a feature film starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito in 1989. Random Hearts was adapted into a film starring Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas in 1999. There was a bidding war in a Hollywood commission for his unpublished book Private Lies. Newsweek reported, "TriStar Pictures outbid Warner Bros and Columbia, and purchased the film rights to Private Lies for $1.2 million. …the highest sums yet paid in Hollywood for an unpublished manuscript."

Adler also wrote The Sunset Gang, produced by Linda Lavin for the American Playhouse series. It was adapted into a trilogy starring Uta Hagen, Harold Gould, Dori Brenner, Jerry Stiller and Ron Rifkin, and gained Doris Roberts an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Mini-Series. The musical version of The Sunset Gang received an off-Broadway production with music scored by composer L. Russell Brown.

In 1981, Adler wrote a sequel to The War of the Roses, The Children of the Roses. It focuses on the effect the Roses' divorce had on their children.

On October 29, 1986, he started his own production company Soaring Eagle Productions, to develop Hollywood film adaptations of his novels, such as We Are Holding the President Hostage, which is the first film to go before the cameras, and he developed The War of the Roses, Trans-Siberian Express and Random Hearts.

Adler was early involved in electronic publishing. In the early 2000s, he predicted the decline of printed books and he envisioned digital publishing becoming the norm. He acquired his complete back-list, published now under his own company, Stonehouse Press. He wrote an article for The Author's Guild stating that authors had best prepare for a major change in the way traditional publishing businesses operated. He argued that they no longer had a monopoly on marketing, distribution, publicity, and content, and stated prolific authors like himself should take charge of their own destiny.

Adler regularly blogged for The Huffington Post and was the sponsor of a visiting writer series at the New York university department of creative writing. He was a member of the Authors Guild, PEN America, the Dramatists Guild and the Writers Guild of America.
