Librarian Note There is than one author in the GoodReads database with this name See this thread for information I was born in Washington, D.C From there my life likely mirrored that of a lot of my readers We moved around I got some education Played some sports, and got some education Prior to becoming a novelist, I worked as a financial analyst determining the value of companies But let s talk about my current and final career, writing mystery novels As a writer, I conjure up occurrences designed to quickly bring the story to a roiling boil Along the way, I invent people Victims and villains and heroes are needed, as well as a supporting cast I make these people fun and interesting so you will welcome them and introduce them to your friends Primary characters need habits and tics and talents, the qualities that bring them to life and make you love them or hate them You ll want to see them humiliated or hunted down, be sucessful or seduced My mysteries offer you the opportunity to be challenged to find the villain from among the suspects Clues as large as a log or as tiny as a bump thereon are salted throughout the stories There are distractions in the form of false clues, called red herrings, which point to someone other than the real villain Take a journey with me Laugh Hold your breath Cheer Boo The characters are rich and the plots are grabbers I promise that you ll be glad you came along Some people don t like golf or chocolate or even a hearty laugh But I ll bet you like some of those things and I ll bet you ll like my mysteries Yours very truly, David Bishop
