Michael Dempsey’s first novel, Necropolis (Amazon), is not his first foray into writing. Not by a long shot. He’s a veteran of Hollywood most notably CBS’s Cybillstarring Cybill Shepherd and has sold and optioned screenplays and television scripts.
So why stop writing for movies and TV to create a genre-busting mix of scifi and crime? Michael and I talk about that, the business of TV writing, the pain and difficulty of coming back to life, an encounter with Jerry Seinfeld’s Porsche, and more.
