Alene Sachitano

Arlene Sachitano

After working nearly 30 years in the high tech industry, where Arlene’s writing consisted of performance reviews, process specs and a scintillating proprietary tome on electronics assembly, she wrote her first mystery novel, Chip and Die.

Inspired by the success of the popular Block of the Month quilting pattern program Seams Like Murder for Storyquilts.com, Inc., she wrote Quilt As Desired, the first Harriet Truman/Loose Threads Mystery, which was published in the fall of 2007.

Arlene is aided in her writing endeavors by her canine companion Navarre. When not writing, she is on the board of directors of the Harriet Vane Chapter of Sister’s In Crime as well as Latimer Quilt and Textile Center in Tillamook. She teaches knitting at Latimer and of course, is a quilter.

She’s been married to Jack for more than thirty years, splitting their time between Tillamook and Multnomah Village in Portland. They have three lovely children and three brilliant grandchildren. She also has two wonderful friends named Susan.
