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).

My Guest is Sister Wendy Cleveland. Wendy’s ministry has given her opportunities to travel and deliver the Gospel proclaiming the Name of Jesus Christ, not only throughout the United States, but also in many countries singing in both English and Spanish. Her travels included Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Aruba, St. Vincent, and the Caribbean, appearing in many churches and concert halls. She has carried the Gospel as far as Ghana, West Africa and Nairobi, Kenya.
Wendy worked for “World Vision” a worldwide organization that supports children through their sponsorship program and has appeared in concert in various churches encouraging the body of Christ to help the hungry children around the world. Her travels led her to Guatemala where World Vision is helping to fight hunger and malnutrition.
Wendy has since embarked on two projects: The first is a classical mixture of Gospel named appropriately, “Give Him the Praise”- the second entitled “He’s Changing Me” of which the signature track she wrote. Wendy has appeared several times on Trinity Broadcasting Network in New York and Atlanta, Georgia. She has been a regular guest on WBPI- Club 36 (Comcast and Knology) in North Augusta, SC., as well as WJBF-Channel 6 (The Parade of Quartets) in Augusta, Georgia as well local churches.

Wendy’s ministry is now expanding in the Spanish-English market. She is singing and ministering in Spanish and reaching the Hispanic community in the Augusta Atlanta areas as well as internationally.
