Welcome to the Indie Writer Podcast where we talk about all things writing and indie publishing. Today host Jacqui Castle talks Humor Writing with David Sharpe.
David E. Sharp is a noisy librarian. Having grown up on the windy plains of the Texas panhandle, David learned early on how to make his own fun. He also discovered a love for storytelling, a rich and vibrant artform with cultural roots all over the world.
Among his early writings was a ransom note to his high school algebra teacher in poison pen, delivered with an enclosed photograph of a text book tied to a chair. While this was wildly entertaining, it lacked the plot and structure of his later writings.
Sharp has authored a number of short stories and launched a series of novels. His first book, Lost on a Page, chronicles the plight of fictional characters from various genres who seek to murder their authors. Had this been an autobiographical work, David E. Sharp might not be with us today.
