What pushed Brenda to write this book.
She has written a book called “My journey through wonderland”.
Fredrick Narohna (from Goa) has been Pushing Brenda to write this book. She stared in 1992. She never thought it would see the light of the day. There a lot of big names involved so she was hesitating to publish.
The publisher encouraged to put in real names. Brenda says it was massive work as all papers were to be organised as proof to prevent any litigations.
Note – some names had to changed like the main antagonist.
