Arlene loves to write. Her earliest memory of exercising her writing skills was as a preteen writing to her secret confidant inside a daily journal. While Face Forward, Move Forward is the first book published under her own name, Arlene has more than 30 years experience as a nonfiction and technical writer. Arlene advises clients who want to write nonfiction by helping develop themes and directing the writing process. She’s been a ghostwriter for a variety of markets and media including trade magazine articles, human-interest and inspirational stories, and numerous educational and marketing programs for non-profits. She helped write a multigenerational family history of Texas pioneers: The Morehead Family History. She has also written numerous articles and short stories about North Texas engineering innovators.

Arlene is a public speaker for a variety of interested groups to spread the message of hope and success that is Face Forward, Move Forward, which won the Oklahoma Writers’ Federation, Inc. “Best in Class” Award for General Nonfiction in 2014. Face Forward, Move Forward has received positive reviews from marriage and family therapists, social workers, pastors and others.

Arlene lives in rural North Texas with her husband, two sons, sheep, chickens, donkeys and a dog. She dedicates her time and energy to working with youngsters in realizing their potential through robotics, band, scouting, reading and other community volunteer programs.

Arlene earned a Marketing/Public Relations degree from Texas Christian University and a Masters in Marketing from the University of Texas at Arlington. She is a member of the Texas Authors Association, Writers’ League of Texas, Fort Worth Writers’, Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc., and Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

Arlene’s imagination is being stretched writing a series of historical fiction books for young, pre-teen readers. Bach in Space and Time is the first in a series designed to be a fun way to teach history and music theory. Arlene is working on these books in conjunction with her already award-winning, published young son. The other series, History Shakers is about a family that travels the world to resolve injustices historical figures claim were done against them to change the course of their lives.
