Samuel Hawley was born and grew up in South Korea, the son of missionary parents. After earning BA and MA degrees in history from Queen's University, he returned to East Asia to teach English for a year and ended up staying there for nearly two decades before retiring in Kingston, Ontario to become a full-time writer. He is the author of the nonfiction books Speed Duel: The Inside Story of the Land Speed Record in the Sixties, which received starred reviews in both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal; I Just Ran: Percy Williams, World’s Fastest Human, named one of the five "Best Sports Books of 2011” by the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation); and the monumental The Imjin War, the most comprehensive account in English of Japan’s sixteenth-century invasion of Korea and attempted conquest of China, hailed as “magnificent” by the South China Morning Post. Bad Elephant Far Stream is his first novel.
Samuel Hawley was born and grew up in South Korea, the son of missionary parents. After earning BA and MA degrees in history at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, he returned to East Asia with his wife to work as a teacher for nearly two decades, first in Japan and then Korea, ending in 2007 as an associate professor of English at Yonsei University in Seoul. He additionally served for three years as head of Yonsei’s 3,000-student Communicative English Department, and as publications chairman and editor for the Royal Asiatic Society, Korea Branch. He continues to serve as general editor of the Society’s annual journal Transactions, the oldest Korean studies journal in the world, published since 1900.
It was in Japan in the early 1990s that Samuel started writing for magazines and newspapers on topics ranging from Japanese fashion and international travel to the world of sumo wrestling, daimyo clocks and fishing at urban tsuribori. By the late ‘90s he had turned his attention to books. His most notable work from this period is The Imjin War (co-published by the Royal Asiatic Society, Seoul and the Insitute of East Asian Studies, UC Berkeley, 2005) the most comprehensive account in English of Japan’s sixteenth-century invasion of Korea and attempted conquest of China, an event of seismic importance in the history of East Asia. He next focused on US Navy ensign and American diplomat George C. Foulk, Washington’s representative in Seoul at the time of Korea’s opening to the West. Foulk, one of the first Westerners to learn to speak Korean and to travel extensively in the country, was perhaps the foremost Western expert at the time on the “Hermit Kingdom." Hawley's interest in Foulk resulted in two books, America's Man in Korea, and Inside the Hermit Kingdom (both Lexington Books, 2007).

Raising awareness is our best defense. Preventing child sex exploitation and victimization through education is part of the solution.
Education, awareness in the following topics:
Missing and exploited children, child sexual assaults, child sex trafficking, internet crimes against a child, aggravated physical abuse to a child, and questionable parenting, the good, the bad and the ugly.
Diaries of the Cheshire Girls Book 1 of The Shattered Looking Glass series is the one that talks about addiction, drunkorexia, inhalant deaths, the first year of sobriety

Our beautiful artist from Oxnard, California has joined us on the show before this - but THIS time, Geneva Renee has big news! A Blues Alley event - showcasing that warm and glorious voice - will be held soon.
You must certainly understand that this is a big deal from a small town on the West Coast. Coming to Washington D.C., a few years ago to attend Howard University, our guest must have known that it was going to take some work to achiveve success. There are so many wonderful artists in this region! Well, she not only has achieved some enviable success - but the attention on her is something special. So far, she has performed in front of director Spike Lee and two Presidents. She won the local NBC affiliate's competition for a VIP audition - for the wildly successful TV show, "The Voice." AND Geneva has shared the stage with dozens of performers - some are household names. Diana Ross and Vanessa Williams and Hugh Jackman. We could fill a PAGE with artists!
Our mezzo soprano has a project called "Beautiful Wonder" - and some of the songs on the album have come under close scrutiny for the BEST reasons. We'll talk about that and play a few tracks. And we'll learn how her inspirations: Kathleen Battle, Yolanda Adams, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston continue to propel her. Geneva wants to keep expanding her horizons and attracting the right kind of attention. Like, for example, Grammy consideration for a song that she wrote (it happened!).
Join us for a special show on 8/21 - just an hour, starting at two p.m. Eastern - we'll get the lowdown on what makes a California Girl tick. You'll be delighted by what you'll learn :)
Marala Scott speaks from the heart with her life-changing words of faith and strength. Her efforts caught the attention of Oprah Winfrey who honored her as one of her five Ambassadors of Hope in 2009 and stated “A childhood of abuse almost kept Marala Scott from a life of happiness…until she discovered how to use her story to help others.” Ms. Scott is also a recipient of a Congressional award for her humanitarian efforts for sharing her prolific life story in efforts to help and inspire others. Marala's Award-winning books, In Our House, (an Amazon Bestseller #3) Surrounded By Inspiration and the newly released Bad to the Bone (an Amazon Bestseller #17) provide powerful lessons that inspire, provide hope and encourage change.
Join certified life coaches Sherry Pierce and Beth Brownlee when the talk with Marala Scott on Thursday, August 21st, at 1:00pm ET discussing her journey through life. Feel free to call into the show at 347-945-5813 and join in the discussion or stream live via the internet using the link below. Blessings and they look forward to hearing from you!
