The Ian Fleming estate has authorized another three stories in the James Bond universe, reports the Guardian.
Novelist Kim Sherwood, who describes Bond as “one of the enduring loves of my life,” will write three thrillers in which Agent 007 is missing, presumed captured, or even killed.
It marks a first, with an asterisk, for women and the Bond series; previously the estate has authorized additional Bond books from male authors, but those books all included 007.
Sherwood’s debut novel, Testament, received the 2016 Bath Novel Award, and she was shortlisted for the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year in 2019.
Her Bond trilogy will launch in September 2022.
