Meet Arline...

Arline Chandler left a teaching career in the kindergarten classroom to launch full-time into writing. She has found that RV travel fits hands-on-keyboard with discovering people and places for her many articles in Workamper News, Branson's Review, Coast to Coast Magazine, Motorhome, Ozarks Magazine, and other entertainment, travel, and senior adult publications.

Arline's book, Truly Zula, Daughter of the Ozarks, traces the life of her 90-year-old aunt, Zula Turney, combining Mrs. Turney's memoirs with glimpses into the history and culture of the Arkansas Ozarks.

Arline is also in demand as a speaker. Between 1995 and 2005, she served on the staff of Life On Wheels RV Conference at the University of Idaho, and spoke at The Rally and Job Fairs across the United States. She is currently available to speak at RV rallies or travel related events about the merits of combining work with travel. Her book, Road Work: The Ultimate RVing Adventure, published in 1997 and revised in 2003, covers this subject. Also in 2003, she co-authored with Greg Robus, Workamper News' Guide to Recruiting and Retaining the Right Workampers. Her book Road Work II: The RVers' Ultimate Income Resource Guide, is an extension of Road Work: The Ultimate RVing Adventure (SOLD OUT), focusing on the expanding possibilities in jobs and volunteerism for Workampers.

Arline is also available to speak at conferences and community events on aspects of writing gleaned from writing courses, seminars, and her own experience in the field of writing. Additionally, she presents two classes on caring for elderly loved ones, aimed at the "Sandwich Generation," individuals often caught between the responsibilities of raising children and caring for aging parents. Her book, When Heads and Hearts Collide, shares her personal experience in caring for her aging parents.

Arline's articles are published regularly in Workamper News, RV Life, Ozarks Mountaineer, Ozarks Magazine and Motorhome. She has additional bylines in Branson's Review, Coast to Coast Magazine, The Country America, Modern Maturity, Successful Retirement, Mature Living, ActiveTimes, Figurines & Collectibles, Home Life, Country Woman, Trail Blazer, Vocational Biographies, and Highways to Adventure.

When not on the road, Arline makes her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas.
