At 17, having conquered Agatha Christie and the first 1000 pages of War and Peace, I was to ready to join MI 6 as the next James Bond, when, out of the blue, came the offer to be a copy editor at a magazine where the copy included research findings on the movement of spindles. I accepted, as a temporary measure, before catching the flight to London to meet Ms Moneypenny. It turned out to be a licence to edit, for the rest of my life. Since then, I have floated on a sea of stories, (apologies to Rushdie whom I interviewed a long time ago), lapped by the waves made by celebs and criminals, stockbrokers and politicians, romance and ransoms. At last, decades later, wish comes true - I meet money and penny at CentSai.
