Arlene James has written romance for three decades, and has published 75+ novels. A mother of two wonderful sons and now a happy grandmother to the brightest of all grandchildren, she is finding her fifth decade to be great fun. She and her very supportive husband of 35 years (whom she agreed to marry on their first date!) enjoy a busy social life and particularly delight in traveling. They have visited much of the world and after calling Texas home for three decades, they have recently relocated to NW Arkansas to be close to their grandchildren. Arlene grew up on a ranch in south central Oklahoma and still maintains strong ties in that area. She is most thankful for loving Christian daughters-in-law, the godly grandparents of her youth and the three strong men in her life. She firmly believes that writing has afforded her the best of all possible means of earning a living, and 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.
