D.V.Bishop is an award-winning screen writer and TV dramatist. His love for the city of Florence and the Renaissance period meant there could only be one setting for his crime fiction debut, City of Vengeance, the first book in the Cesare Aldo series which was published in 2020. It won the Pitch Perfect competition at Bloody Scotland 2018, and he was awarded a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship by the Scottish Book Trust while writing the novel. When not busy being the programme leader for creative writing at Edinburgh Napier University, he plans his next research trip to Florence.
