He continues to have a long, full life as a man of the world. 87 year old William Stevenson is a British born Canadian author who was once a World War 2 Royal Navy fighter pilot. The author of books such as “A Man Called Intrepid” and “Intrepid’s Last Case”, Stevenson has released his own story in a memoir called “Past to Present”. He chronicles the major events of his life and his meetings with such iconic figures as Mao Tse-Tung, the young Dalai Lama, Nikita Khrushchev and James Bond author Ian Fleming. Stevenson joked with Mike and Jean on The New Classical 96.3FM’s Good Day GTA, that he once told Fleming to stay away from writing fiction. He realizes now that was not good advice!
William Stevenson makes his home in Toronto. At one time, he was also a reporter for the Toronto Star.
