Profile: Robert M. Blevins

I spent my early years being dragged around the Pacific Rim by a wonderful single mother. Grew up in places like Manila, Kwajalein Atoll, Midway Island, Guam, Hawaii, and Mexico. Finally ended up in the Seattle area.

I’ve authored three sci-fi novels, Say Goodbye to the Sun, The Corona Incident, and The 13th Day of Christmas. These days I help run a small US registered trade press called Adventure Books of Seattle. Our claim to fame is that we’re 98% sure we’ve solved the famous ‘D.B. Cooper’ hijacking case after an investigation that lasted almost eight years. The result was the book, Into The Blast – The True Story of D.B. Cooper, and a 54-page report to the Seattle FBI. Less than a year later they stopped investigating the case and we wondered if it was because of the report. You never know. In any case, the Cooper book and all our investigatory files were optioned for a movie in January 2017, with production shooting to begin next year.

My favorite activities are camping out, photography, day hiking, and fishing. The best thing I did this year was guide a group of very nice people to Magone Lake, Oregon to watch the total solar eclipse.
