ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Leon Fredrick has been involved in journalism in some form for all but the first few years of his life. After serving in both Atlantic and Pacific in the United States Coast Guard in World War II, he attended Pittsburg, Kan., State Teachers College and the University of Arkansas. Getting the bug to get into business for himself, he left college and, with his sister and brother-in-law, Duke and Betty Williams, leased a weekly newspaper at Fredericktown, Mo. The owner sold the newspaper after a year. He then worked as a Linotype operator and printer for six years before establishing the Stone County Republican. He published that newspaper for 10 years before selling it. After starting and then selling a weekly newspaper at Boliver, Mo., he worked in the editorial department for various publication, ending up as a news editor for Billboard Publications in Nashville. He published the Mountain Echo at Ironton, Mo., The American Showman, an international entertainment trade magazine, and the Aurora Advertiser before retiring. He has been Entertainment Editor of the Branson Country Review since its debut. This is his first book.
