I have proven I am a valid author of James Bondish books, even though I have not completed and published one. Reading about THE END of Bond Movies, Bond Roles, and Bond Actors is a Art Piece, in that the producers and makers conclude there are no more Real Bond Books to be written by a bonified Bond Writer. It reads like a shipwreck and salvage job that reminds me of the claptrap Syndey Morris instigated when he sold the Rosamond Creative Legacy to an Inept Salvage Crew – who destroyed – THE WRECK! Christine wanted me to be her manager, and I told my daughter I could teach her The Family Style so she could carry on. Christine Rosamond could have gotten in on the Bond Bandwagon and produced much artwork for Broccoli.
My love affair with Lara Roozemond is at an end. She will not make a good Victoria Rosemond Bond. My mother, Rosemary Rosamond, worked in Naval Intelligence while in the WAVES. Rosemary was insane. My father said it was like she was writing a book and…..”wanted to employ me in it.”

With Daniel Craig turning in his license to kill after his fifth and final James Bond film, No Time to Die — which finally arrives in theaters on Oct. 8 — speculation is naturally rampant about the identity of the next 007. So far, the guardians of the long-running franchise, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, are keeping that particular secret hidden away in their own Q-designed vault. But that hasn’t stopped fans from offering their own suggestions, with one common theme being that the new Bond should reflect the diversity of modern-day action heroes, not to mention the diversity of the modern-day audience for action movies.
Over the years, everyone from Idris Elba and Regé-Jean Page to Emily Blunt and Gal Gadot has been floated as a replacement for Craig. But the actor has his own thoughts on whether the time is right to reinvent the role so dramatically. In a new interview with Radio Times, Craig discussed why he thinks the conversation goes beyond Bond and should entail creating exciting new characters as opposed to reimagining existing ones.
“The answer to that is very simple,” Craig said when asked about the possibility of a woman or actor of color taking over the franchise.”There should simply be better parts for women and actors of color. Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?”
It’s worth noting that No Time to Die is already making history by featuring breakout Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch as the first Black actress to achieve “00” status. In fact, her character, Nomi, is rumored to actually be the new 007 in the film, at least until Bond comes out of his post-Spectre retirement. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar U.K.last year, Lynch described how she accepted the part because she’d be placed on equal footing with Craig and not “behind the man.”
