About the Author

Biography Harold Blevins was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and came to California when he was five years old. Highlights of his career were attendance at Fullerton High School, which he considered the best years of his life. He was popular as a baseball star. After high school, he tried out with the Brooklyn Dodgers and was in the process of acceptance when he injured so badly his arm pitching that he was unable to continue and had to look for other talents in his future. After that, he went into the Korean War, which was probably one of the hardest endeavors that he ever encountered . . . If there was an obstacle, he was there to try and overcome it. After the service, he received his arson certificate. During his career as sheriff, he was injured and laid off on a disability retirement. From there, he worked as a safety director at a large mobile home factory, security at Whittier College, and property manager at a large condominium complex. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
