About Author

Leslie Charteris

Leslie Charteris was a British-Chinese adventure fiction author and screenwriter. He was most known for his many works on his hero, Simon Templar, also known as "The Saint". Charteris was born Leslie Charles Bowyer-Yin in Singapore. His mother, Lydia Florence Bowyer, was English. His father, Dr. S. C. Yin (Yin Suat Chuan, 1877–1958), was a Chinese physician who claimed to be descended from Shang dynasty monarchs. Leslie grew interested in writing at a young age. He formerly published his own magazine, which included essays, short stories, poems, editorials, serials, and even a comic strip. He attended Saint Andrew's School in Singapore then, after migrating to England, Rossall School in Fleetwood, Lancashire. In 1926, Leslie formally changed his surname to "Charteris". In the BBC Radio 4 program Leslie Charteris - A Saintly Centennial, his daughter revealed that he chose the name from a telephone book. However, other sources contradict this information. In an introduction to the 1988 edition of The Saint in New York, William Ruehlmann (author of Saint with a Gun: The Unlawful American Private Eye) wrote, "He acquired, in 1928, the legal name of Charteris, after the roguish Col. Francis, gambler, duellist, and founder of the Hellfire Club" (confusing Col. Francis Charteris (rake) with Francis Dashwood, 11th Baron le Despencer, also a rake and founder of the Hellfire Club).
