I was sitting in a nice bar in The Philippines when a guy came in and asked if I wanted to be in a local movie starring Eddie Garcia.. and so started my movie career.
Since then I worked with many stars including, Chuck Norris, Edward Fox, Linda Blair Chris Penn, Richard Hatch, Lou Ferrigno, Doald Pleasance, Denholm Elliot, Miles O' Keefe, Sam Jones and many many others.
During filming of a movie starring George Takai (Mr. Sulu of Star Trek)called "The Return To The River Kwai" I was approached by some locals and asked if I could get George to translate some Japanese writing on a map.
Of course I was to shy to ask him, but I found out that the map was supposed to show the location of treasure that was buried by General Yamashita at the end of WW2.
Years later my film work took me to Hong Kong where I did a bit of scriptwriting and worked in a number of local movies. I also worked as an extra with Jacky Chan and Jean Claude Van Damme. Funnily both films were about twin brothers.
It was here that I decided to write an adventure novel set against the backdrop of the Yamashita legend.
When I eventually got back to the UK, I put the manuscript under the bed and forgot about it.
One spring morning I found it and decided to send it to a publisher who quickly accepted it. (To my surprise)
The book was featured at the London Book Fair and I have been on the BBC as well as local radio stations and in all of the national newspapers.
Recently I was invited to participate on the History Channel's 'Myth Hunters' Series 3, on an episode called' Yamashita's Gold.
So now the book is doing very well now, thank you, all due to that brief encounter while I was enjoying a cold beer in The Philippines...
Enjoy the story.....James Mckenzie.
" Try as he might he could not shake the sight of the aswang from his head. At first he thought it had been a ghost, the type that might appear to children and the superstitious; it was an old woman floating before his eyes, but only part of her body was visible. She had a strange face, old and tired, but eyes that could melt steel, red and violent."
