The only thing better than writing an article about a legendary and intriguing person is getting to write a whole series about him. While writing this three part series about the life and times of Jim Thompson, Thailand's King of Silk, I was like a kid in a candy store.
The research, the fact checking and the sheer excitement of writing about a real person I have always admired is what writing is all about.
Check out this series and I'll bet you'll learn something you didn't know.
