Arlene Hittle is a Midwestern transplant who now makes her home in northern Arizona. She suffers from the well-documented Hittle family curse of being a Cubs fan but will root for the Diamondbacks until they run up against the Cubs. Longtime friends are amazed she writes books with sports in them, since she’s about as coordinated as a newborn giraffe and used to say marching band required more exertion than golf. Find her at arlenehittle.com, on Twitter or on Facebook.

I have a few more ideas percolating in my brain, including one that features Condors pitcher Luis, who you met in SLIDING INTO HOME, but nothing has been finalized yet.

My next book from Turquoise Morning Press is something completely different. Well, it's still romantic comedy and it's set in Arizona—but there's no baseball. BREAKING ALL THE RULES: A new (and some would say stupid) state law forces a by-the-book mental health facility administrator to go on the hunt for a Klingon interpreter. The free-spirited guy she hires makes it his mission to convince her some rules are meant to be broken.(less)

(They're stubborn, and tend not to let me write unless I do their thing.) The one time I did complete extensive planning before I started writing, for NaNoWriMo 2010, I finished three days ahead of schedule with 3,000 extra words. (less)

You heard it here first?

Okay, I’ve been sadly neglecting this little author blog … and I made the big announcement of my newest project on my author Facebook page. Guess that means you heard it here second, not first.

Oops. My author blog is sadly under-utilized.

April is Camp NaNoWriMo month, and I’m using it as the push I need to FINALLY finish editing Beth & Cody’s story, Trouble in Paradise.

I loved this book so much more than The Woman in Cabin 10. Our book club read that one, and -- eh, it wasn't my favorite. But I didn't hate it so much that I refused to read The Lying Game when it landed in my lap. I'm so glad I took a chance. The Ly ...more

E.L. Doctorow
“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.”
E.L. Doctorow

Dave Eggers
“Books have a unique way of stopping time in a particular moment and saying: Let’s not forget this.”
Dave Eggers

Lauren Graham
“That's the thing that always stuck out to me - the idea that quantity becomes quality. I always took it to mean if you do anything enough, if you keep putting effort in, eventually something will happen, with or without you. You don't have to have faith when you start out, you just have to dedicate yourself to practice as if you have it.”
Lauren Graham, Someday, Someday, Maybe
