Ian Fleming – Inspirations and Influences


Join bestselling action-thriller author Chris Allen as he explores the past of writer Ian Fleming. 

Learn about Fleming’s upbringing, his literary inspirations and role models, and how all these elements combined to create James Bond, a character who remains unsurpassed in modern popular culture.

Allen’s detailed knowledge and enduring interest in Fleming - the man, his life and creative works, makes for a fascinating session for Bond, Fleming and fiction lovers alike.

A former paratrooper, Chris Allen served in three Commonwealth armies across two decades and four continents, retired and worked for three Australian law enforcement agencies, and is now the best-selling author of the ‘Intrepid’ action-thriller series inspired by his military and law enforcement service.
