Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on coming up with ideas for his works] I have no idea where plots and characters come from. If you are a professional novelist, a writer of the kind of books that I write, that's the job--inventing characters and plots. See more »


In his Bond novels, he made 007 a little less flamboyant, and changed his Aston Martin to a Saab. The women characters were given more depth. See more »
