About the author:
Joe Blakely lives with his wife, Saundra Miles in Eugene, Oregon. He has one son, Justin, and a stepson, Jonathan Baker. Mr. Blakely earned a degree in history from San Diego State College-while in college he excelled in the writing of history term papers.

Mr. Blakely retired from the Office of Public Safety at the University of Oregon in 1999. After retirement he decided to write about Oregon history.

Mr. Blakely has written eleven books-eight are histories about Oregon. Mr. Blakely says his best work is his biography of Oswald West, Oregon's rascally governor who wrote legislation in 1913 to set aside Oregon's beaches as a highway, thereby providing public access. His two Highway 101 coast books, Lifting Oregon Out of the Mud: Building the Oregon Coast Highway (2006) and Building Oregon's Coast Highway 1936-1966: Straightening Curves and Uncorking Bottlenecks (2014) on building the coast highway, have been most popular.

Mr. Blakely is currently working on a novel set in 1960, on Oregon's Coast Highway.
