Hello Bernard and thank you for agreeing to sit down with us! We are so excited to have you with us here at Rukia Publishing with your memoir series, "A Harem Boy's Saga".
Thank You! This is always exciting. It's is great to meet Team Rukia!
Let's Get Started!
How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been a writer since early 2011. I wrote because four years ago, after I closed my fashion boutique in Honolulu, I decided it was time to document my positive adolescent life experiences that I’ve kept under wraps for close to 40 years. That’s when A Harem Boy’s Saga; a memoir by Young (my pen-name) series was born. An inner calling told me to document my unique education and now, is the correct moment to tell my story.
How did you come up with your stories?
I’m writing about my life’s many adventures and experiences. The dialogue within the books are my creative input since I can’t remember everything that was said 40 something years ago. But the experiences are true because I have many photographs taken during those early years of my life to remind me of what transpired.
How did you conduct your research for – A Harem Boy’s Saga – I - INITIATION?
I had a privileged and unique upbringing in Malaysia, where I was known as a "sissy boy." Following in my brothers' footsteps, I was sent to an exclusive boarding school in England. It is there that I was inducted into a clandestine organization, E.R.O.S. The Enlightened Royal Oracle Society. For four years, unbeknownst to my family, I was willingly and happily part of a Harem.
My story has been kept under wraps for close to 45 years. The correct moment has arrived for me to make known my unique education.
