His debut romance novel, Game of Love, will be published by Astraea Press in both print and digital formats.

Game of Love is about a struggling tennis star whose celebrity status spins out of control, and not because she is a world class athlete. Meeting her kindred spirit turns into a nightmare when love takes on a whole new meaning off the courts. From the clay courts of Roland Garros to the pristine lawns of Wimbledon, Game of Love is a journey of redemption.

What drove a man to write a romance novel? Ara has always been driven by stories of second chances. And as an IT executive he develops strategies to help turn around struggling groups. So call it love stories, romances, or stories of second chances, Ara is now writing two more books with similar themes because he believes everyone should have a shot at happiness.

Planned for release in mid-June, just before the start of Wimbledon, Game of Love will be available at all major booksellers both online and in stores. You can find more information on

Arthur Wolak
University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, 2001

Arthur Wolak, PhD recently had a book published by Palgrave Macmillan (New York & London). “The Development of Managerial Culture” examines the differences in underlying values and cultural distinctions in managerial cultures in Australia and Canada. Despite a similar history of British colonial origins in Australia and Canada and despite both countries receiving English, Scottish and Irish immigrants, differences in management culture can be attributed, in large part, to the impact of the influence of the greater numbers of Irish-Catholic migrants to Australia. 

This book argues that Canada, lacking the 'Irish factor' in its cultural and socio-political development, derived much of its business culture from British colonial traditions. The Development of Managerial Culture offers a valuable commentary on differences in attitudes to managerial culture and industrial relations in both Canada and Australia. However, it remains a comparative study of national character development as a whole, in order to provide necessary context and insight for readers.
