About the author (2008)

L.H. (Loren Harold) Mitchell was born in Tacoma, Washington on June 9, 1930 and spent most of his life living and working in Oregon and California. He attended high school in Pacific Grove, California, graduated in 1948. He began working toward a career in commercial photography when the Korean War broke out in June, 1950. Thinking that he might be drafted into the Army, he joined the Navy in October, 1950. He ultimately became a Navy photographer and spent 17 months on aircraft carriers off the Korean coast, and stayed in the Navy almost six years (including Naval Reserve time). After receiving an Honorable Discharge, Mitchell attended Monterey Peninsula College and the University of California. He left the University of California in his senior year after deciding that he should have been studying Journalism, which he preferred, instead of English Literature. After college, Mr. Mitchell worked as commercial-industrial photographer. He made the change to journalism while in his 40s and wrote numerous articles and several contract books. While in his fifties, Mitchell was forced to give up journalism to manage and maintain family property in Pacific Grove, California. He sold the property in his late sixties and retired to the Pacific Northwest where he could write again.
