Author of "THE MOST INTELLIGENT OF IDIOTS"
The Memoirs Of Author Steven Clark Bradley~~
I am so excited about having been given the opportunity of authoring my Memoirs, 'The Most Intelligent Of Idiots.' It is appropriately titled. I thank God for giving me the skill and the passion to author the five dramatic thriller novels titled: The Second Republic; Patriot Acts; Nimrod Rising; Probable Cause; and Stillborn. My life has seen the opened doors that God has given me. I was able to learn both French, and Turkish. In my past, I was an assistant to a prosecutor, a University instructor, and a freelance journalist.
I grew up in Knox, Indiana, and attended and graduated from Knox High School in 1977. In that same year, I began college studies in Theology at Emmaus Bible College, which is now located in Dubuque, Iowa. I completed my degree at Bethel College, and earned my B.A. in Organizational Management of Human Resources. In 1985, while in France, I was able to earn a Certificate of Fluency in the French Language at Cavilam Institute of the French Language in Vichy, France. I was also able to obtain a Master's Degree in Liberal Studies at Indiana University in 2001.
I worked a number of years in various countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa. God granted me the privilege of visiting or living in thirty-four countries, where I worked extensively with Kurdish refugees from Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. I established a school by correspondence for African students in the African countries of the Gambia and Senegal West Africa, and founded a Cultural Center for refugees in France, where I lived for six years. Because of my experience, today I can speak French and Turkish.
Before returning to the United States in 1995, I worked as an instructor of English and Business skills four years at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey. I was responsible for the supervision of ten tourism instructors, and supervised the development of syllabi, course outlines, and the development of pertinent materials for Tourism and Business courses. I was given the opportunity of assisting in the development of a Masters of Business Administration and Public Presentation skills courses. Developing specialized Writing course to deepen students abilities in communication for business and writing purposes. I was involved in several World Bank courses, which were offered at the University as well.
In 1999, I took up the challenge of becoming the Republican Party's nominee for Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, where I presented the strongest Republican Candidacy in the democratically controlled city in decades. Today, I reside in the Los Angelas area, where I am a full-time novelist, and language instructor.
