About the Author: John C. Calhoun

John Caldwell Calhoun March 18, 1782 – March 31, 1850) was a leading politician and political theorist from South Carolina during the first half of the 19th century. A powerful intellect, Calhoun eloquently spoke out on every issue of his day, but often changed positions. Calhoun began his political career as a nationalist, modernizer, and proponent of a strong national government and protective tariffs. After 1840 he switched to states' rights, limited government, nullification and free trade. He is best known for his intense and original defense of slavery as a positive good, for his inventing the theory of minority rights in a democracy, and for pointing the South toward secession from the Union.

When John Gentry decided to become a Georgia colonist for the great nation of Britain, he could have never imagined the adventures that would spread out before him. After befriending an orphaned girl during the ship's passage, John finds promise, possibility and the chance to make a name for himself-a far cry from his thievery and single pence lifestyle in London. Author John C. Calhoun takes readers on a timeless adventure in his new novel, Reluctant Empire, with a colorful cast of fictional characters interacting with historical figures such as James Oglethorpe, Mary Musgrove and the brothers John and Charles Wesley in the barely-touched Georgia landscape and settlement of Savannah. As readers follow the daily lives of the colonists, a vivid portrait of early-Georgian life is painted on a mural of freedom, illustrating the life, loss, love and self-discovery that was essential to the founding of this unique and influential colony.
