Ian Fleming was a writer from the United Kingdom.[1]

He is best known for creating the fiction character of James Bond, a secret agent with "a license to kill". Fleming wrote 12 novels featuring Bond.[1]

Fleming served in Naval Intelligence during World War II and commentators credit his real world experience for making his novels more entertaining.[1]

Retrieved on 2024-02-13. “Perhaps because of the difficulty he found in resisting life's indulgences, he adopted a strict writing routine in his last 12 years, the period in which he wrote more than a dozen Bond novels that spawned the multibillion-dollar film franchise.”
