Synopsis: One writer's experience about living, working, dating, finding love, and raising kids in a foreign country. If you've ever thought about teaching English in an Asian country, then this book is for you. You'll learn what to expect when you arrive, how to pick a good school, what qualifications you'll need, how to come up with interesting ways to teach foreign kids, and much more. But this book goes much deeper than just teaching. The writer shares some very personal information about dating and finding a deep and meaningful relationship while living abroad. What starts out as a helpful guide to help newcomers arriving in Taiwan turns into a very heartwarming love story, as marriage, children, bizarre customs, and overbearing in-laws enter the picture. Filled with dozens of pictures, the author pulls no punches in his description of life in Taiwan. It's not always pretty, but it's always entertaining.

About the Author: Ken Berglund was born and raised in Southern California, spending most of his early years in Downey and Long Beach. He spent 4 1/2 years in Asia working as an English teacher in Taiwan. He met his wife Chien Yu (Christy) while working for Hess Language School in Hsinchu. His experiences in Taiwan were documented in his first book, "An American Teacher in Taiwan." Ken moved his family to Austin, Texas in 2008, and his struggles and successes were documented in his second book, "From Taiwan to Texas: Life in Mid-America." His third book, "The Reluctant Austinite," is the third and final book in a trilogy of memoirs & anecdotes about life in America and Taiwan. His first fiction book, "Interstate 10", was released in January of 2013 to very positive reviews. He followed up that book with another fiction book, "Small Town Evil", in February 2013. "Small Town Evil" went on to become a best-seller in the Horror genre, staying in the top 50 for many months, and reaching as high as #6. For his latest book, "The Dead Ones", released in April of 2013, Ken described it as "sort of a companion piece to 'Interstate 10.' If people liked that one, they will probably like this one too."
