About the author:
Bobby Cenoura is an independent literary artist who grew up in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area in the 90s and witnessed some of the sweeping changes in demographic, scenery, and socioeconomic interaction. He holds a bachelor's degree in the social sciences.
In the late 90s, Washington D.C., affectionately dubbed "Chocolate City", was recovering from the crack epidemic and the label of "murder capital".
Interaction beyond the bulletproof glass that divides Black customers and Korean merchants is what drives SEOUL REVELATIONS. Race, culture and inner city survival are examined and revealed.
SEOUL REVELATIONS is a story of friendship and betrayal; one that analyzes the challenges of a budding interracial relationship between Marcus Richardson, a young Black community college student and aspiring four-year university enrollee, and Kim Han, a young Korean American college girl whose father runs Sunbeam Market, a liquor store/bodega in Marcus' inner city neighborhood.
Marcus, wanting to escape the snares of the inner city, has built a friendship of trust and fresh perspective with Kim. Meanwhile his best friend Tyrell deals with issues of depression and self-esteem because he feels that he lives his life in Marcus' shadow.

Worlds collide when Delonte cheats P-Nutt and is given an ultimatum to recover the money plus interest or face execution. Delonte sets his sights on Sunbeam Market as a target for robbery which drastically impacts Marcus' and Kim's relationship.
