Daniel E. Sharpe

I am 60 years of age, a proud father of two sons and one daughter, and a grandfather of three. I am a Veteran of Vietnam: U.S. Navy, 1967–1970.

I have been a dishwasher, prep cook, busboy, service station attendant, carpenter, carpet cleaner, shoe salesman, department store manager, and now prisoner. I write of which I know.

Thank God my life’s not over.
