Author: Theofil Halama

Theofil Halama is a renowned Czech-American author, educator, linguist, and theologian. Leaving his homeland Czechoslavakia in the late 1970s during the Soviet occupation, he traveled the world. From Italy, he immigrated to the USA. He took teaching positions in Texas and then in Monterey, California, where he has retired. His multi- dimensional poetry and short stories gradually re-emerged with publications in Prague, Brno, and other Eastern European cities after the Czech Velvet Revolution in 1989. Inspired by his son, this work is the first of Halama's seventeen books directed to young readers. Written in the Hawaiian Islands at Christmastime in 2013, these stories are permeated with the fragrances and songs of the Pacific Ocean at daybreak. AS DAY BREAKS (Cross Cultural Communications, 2015) is published simultaneously in English and Czech.
