Humor Writing with David Sharpe

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.
