Writer Groupie Episode 29 Arlene Hittle, romance author

arlenehittleArlene Hittle is a Midwestern transplant who now makes her home in northern Arizona. She blames her father for her love of all things sci-fi. He took her to see Star Wars when she was six. She immediately fell in love with R2-D2, C3PO, and Luke Skywalker. (only with the Star Wars re-release in the ’90s did she succomb to the bad-boy appeal of Han Solo) When she’s not writing, reading, spending time with her boyfriend, or slurping down Starbucks’ drinks, Arlene works as a page designer/reporter for the Daily Courier in Prescott. She is full of great information and inspiration for authors, so I am excited to have her on Writer Groupie Podcast.
