D. V. Bishop is the author of the Cesare Aldo mysteries set in Renaissance Florence, and published by Pan Macmillan. Before his debut as an author, David had a varied career, from journalism to editing some of the UK's biggest comics at Judge Dredd The Megazine and 2000AD, before becoming an award-winning screenwriter and TV dramatist. City of Vengeance won the Pitch Perfect competition at the Bloody Scotland crime fiction festival in 2018, and he was awarded a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship by the Scottish Book Trust while writing the novel. We had great fun learning about David's journey, hearing about how he landed the editor job at 2000AD, and talk in detail about why has wanted to write City of Vengeance for twenty years. As David is also the head of Creative Writing at Napier University, we also get some great tips on writing (use all five senses!), talk about plotting vs pantsing, and much more!Links:Buy City of Vengeance now!Visit David's websiteFollow him on TwitterWatch our video panel Page One Sessions as we discuss writing with great authors: https://youtu.be/gmE6iCDYn-sThe Page One Podcast is brought to you by Write Gear, creators of Page One - the Writer's Notebook.
