Peace Corps/Korea Peace Corps volunteers served in the Republic of Korea (South Korea) from 1966 through 1981. The majority of volunteers who served in Korea during this fifteen-year period taught English as a Second Language. Others served in various health programs. By 1981 South Korea was rapidly developing into the modern capitalist and democratic nation that it is today, and Peace Corps ended all its programs in the country.

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
