Grand Rapids, MI (Take Five, WZZM 13) -- While serving in the British Navy, author Ian Fleming told a friend that he was going to write THE spy story to end all spy stories. On February 17th, 1952, Fleming began writing his first James Bond novel, "Casino Royale" at his Goldeneye Estate in Jamaica.  

Twelve novels, two short story collections, and 50 years later .. Fleming really DID write the spy story to end all spy stories. From where the name "James Bond" really came from to "Bond Scrambled Eggs" to the American "Jimmy Bond" ... as the latest Bond movie "Skyfall" hits theatres today, we celebrate with a behind the scenes look at how it all came to be.
