Hawley is a writer of narrative nonfiction. His books are
highly eclectic. He has written about 16th-century East Asian history,
19th-century Korean-American relations, Olympic sprinting and land
speed racing and a circus elephant named Topsy who was electrocuted in 1903. He lives in Kingston, Ontario.
Here are some things to augment the two books I edited on George Foulk: America's Man in Korea: The Private Letters of George C. Foulk, 1884-1887 (Lexington Books, 2007) and Inside the Hermit Kingdom: The 1884 Korea Travel Diary of George Clayton Foulk (Lexington Books, 2007).
