Ian Fleming was an English writer, known mainly for his James Bond novels. He was a friend of Noel Coward, lived in Jamaica in house called Goldeneye (inspiration for the 1995 Bond film title) and had been involved in British Intelligence during the Second World War as an officer in the Royal Naval Reserve. While on detachment to America, he co-wrote the charter of the OSS (Office of Strategic Studies) which was the predecessor to the CIA.

(1908-1965) Fleming studied French, German and Russian at the University of Geneva and the University of Munich. Afterwards, he worked at Reuter's for three years, then as a partner in an English stockbroking firm. After returning from a trade mission in Moscow Fleming started as Personal Assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence, Admiral Godfrey - and those experiences led to the Bond series.
