My name is Mark Simmons; welcome to my website. I’m a writer of espionage books, both fiction and non-fiction. My first book about Ian Fleming, Ian Fleming & Operation Golden Eye: Keeping Spain out of World War II, was favourably reviewed in the New York Times and was followed in 2020 by Ian Fleming’s War: The Inspiration for 007. 

For many years I have also run an online book shop selling a wide range of second-hand titles. Visit my eBay store to see the full range.


You can purchase the full range of my books in my new online shop. From my fiction novels to my non-fiction titles, all can be purchased directly from myself. Kindle books also available via a link to Amazon.

As well as selling my own titles, I also have an array of second-hand books by other authors available to buy. Visit my online shop via the button below and start browsing the various categories of second-hand books.
