Leslie Charteris

Charteris, born Leslie Charles Bowyer-Yin, had wanted to be a writer since his formative years in Singapore. With a Chinese father and an English mother in the British Crown Colony young Leslie found it hard to make friends; the English children had been told not to play with Eurasians and the Chinese children had been told not to play with the Europeans. Leslie was caught in between and took refuge in reading. He’d read the family collection of encyclopaedias from start to finish, not realising that for most people education was a chore.
