I've been a James Bond fan since I was 8 years old when I simultaneously read Casino Royale and bought an Corgi Aston Martin DB5.
I've been running The James Bond Dossier under a variety of names since 2002, having settled on the current domain in 2004. Today there are a variety of authors contributing to the website and as well as writing articles and news items I act as editor.
You can also find me on Google +.
