About the Author

Ken Mansfield has experienced a life that most people have only read about. He was in the heart and heat of the music industry when it was young and vibrant—back when creativity and passion made the music. A simple young man from the Indian reservation lands in Northern Idaho, Ken found himself propelled into the center of a Rock ‘n’ Roll whirlwind when as a Capitol Records executive the Beatles asked him to be the US Manager of their Apple Record label as well as acting as their personal liaison between the UK and the US. When the Beatles breakup seemed inevitable, he moved on to become a Vice President at MGM Records and then President of Barnaby Records a CBS label owned by Andy Williams. Wanting to fly even higher and faster, he left the corporate world to set up his own company, Hometown Productions Inc., where he produced famous artists of that era such as Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter, Don Ho, David Cassidy, Claudine Longet, Nick Gilder, The Flying Burrito Bros. and more.

Ken is the author of six books including the top selling The Beatles, The Bible and Bodega Bay (Broadman and Holman) and The White Book (Thomas Nelson). Other titles include, Between Wyomings (Thomas Nelson), Stumbling on Open Ground (Thomas Nelson), Rock and a Heart Place (Broadstreet) and Philco (Post Hill Press.) Ken now lives, loves and writes on the beautiful Florida gulf coast with his wife Connie.
