Arlene James has written for nearly four decades and has published 90+ novels. She is finding her sixth decade to be great fun.

Her husband of 40 years (whom she agreed to marry on their first date!) is a retired engineer and an artist. They enjoy a busy social life and have visited much of the world. Native Oklahomans, they proudly called Texas home for thirty-four years and now live close to family in beautiful NW Arkansas. She has three bright and beautiful granddaughters.

A Christian since the age of 9, she is deeply thankful for the godly Grandparents who taught her that faith grounded in a firm understanding of God's Word is the true key to happiness and peace.

Arlene firmly believes that writing has afforded her the best of all possible means of earning a living, and she credits a junior high school English teacher with proving to her that her dream of being an author was entirely achievable. She's had two great agents during her career, Charles M. Stern, now retired, and Pattie Steele-Perkins of the Steele-Perkins Literary Agency. She considers both to be the best in their field.




Short Story "Worth the Wait" in the March 27, 2017, issue of WOMAN'S WORLD magazine.
