David Downie

David Downie is a native San Franciscan who moved to Paris in the mid-1980s and now divides his time between France and Italy. His travel, food and arts features have appeared in over 50 print magazines and newspapers worldwide and on dozens of websites. Downie is the author of over a dozen nonfiction books, one literay novel and two thrillers, dozens of anthologies (as a contributor), an app about Paris history (featuring key Dates from 8000 BC to the present, plus key People, Places and Events), and another app about the food and wine of Rome (both Apps are currently being updated and are not available–stay tuned). Downie’s latest nonfiction works are A Taste of Paris: A History of the Parisian Love Affair with Food (winner of the 2017 Gourmand Award for best American food-travel book) and A Passion for Paris: Romanticism and Romance in the City of Light, both published by St. Martin’s Press. His most recent novel, Red Riviera, a mystery set on the stunning Italian Riviera, is forthcoming from Alan Squire Publishing on June 25, 2021.
