Author has written 1 story for James Bond.

The Ghost of a Chance is to date my only fan-fiction but I thoroughly enjoyed writing it so will be doing another at some point. For those who asked I also have some non-Bond stuff over on FictionPress.

It's present-day movie-style thrills written, hopefully, in an acceptably Fleming-esque manner without me trying to copy his style (I don't pretend to be clever enough). For those who've read the books, it's similar to Christopher Wood's 'The Spy Who Loved Me' novelisation. (I also think it's better than Sebastian Faulks' effort, but of course I am biased:-))

I've thrown in all my favourite stuff, partly because you write about what you know but mainly because I'm writing the Bond I would want to read. The reviews so far have been pretty positive so hopefully I've hit the spot - many thanks to those who provided them.

If you like it - or frankly even if you don't - please consider giving to

CancerResearch www.justgiving.com/AlexanderTurnbull or

BiPolarUK www.justgiving.com/AlexanderTurnbull2.

We're smart enough to beat both.

I think I am obliged to say I don't own any copyrights of any of the stock characters nor the 007 'formula'. Hopefully this is obvious, but just in case, there it is. So don't go selling this for huge wodges of cash or making it into a film. Well, not without telling me first anyway.

Hope you like it - please leave comments good or bad under 'Reviews'.

Thanks for your time,

Sandy Turnbull.
