Stan Slap writes next book in Jamaica on 007 Ian Fleming’s Actual Desk
The point is: That I recently gave a keynote in Jamaica to the heads of all the Caribbean credit unions and grabbed the opportunity to spend a couple of weeks at Goldeneye, site of Ian Fleming’s former house. It’s now now owned by Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records and the guy who brought Bob Marley to the world. In Fleming’s house is the original desk where he wrote all 13 James Bond books — James Bond did not exist until he was created at that very desk. I set my laptop right where Fleming sat his typewriter and used the peace of the private Jamaican beach and the inspiration of that holy desk to work on my second book. Haven’t figured out how I’m going to get the girl in the gold paint worked into a book about employee culture.
