  Boye L De Mente's Success Story
I first began writing professionally in 1950 when stationed in Japan as a member of the ASA [Army Security Agency], when I originated and became the editor of The ASA Star weekly newspaper. My first book, "Japanese Simplified," was published in 1951...primarily to help ASA members communicate with their Japanese girl friends and mistresses. Afer leaving the ASA in 1952 I worked for a succession of magazines and newspapers in Tokyo, then became the editor of the new Tokyo-based IMPORTER Magazine in 1958, covering Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong & China.
My first serious book was published in 1959 [it is still in print at McGraw-Hill] I moved back to the U.S. in the mid-1960s and began commuting to Asia from three to four times a year on research projects for new books. I continued this routine until I hit 80, and then began to concentrate on books on the foibles and failures of Western cultures...particularly that of the United States.
