About the Author:

William (Bill) Sharp was born and raised in upstate New York. Graduating from college with a degree in Industrial Engineering, Bill earned a Regular Commission from the Reserve Officers Training Program at Ohio University and entered the Air Force as a second Lieutenant bound for flight school in southern Georgia. Upon graduation from flight training, Bill was assigned to the Strategic Air Command, flying KC and EC-135 tanker aircraft. Bill served in that capacity domestically and in Southeast Asia. Later he was cross trained into helicopters, flying the expansive missile range in southern Arizona. During that tour of duty he became a helicopter flight instructor and helped test the Air Force designated UH-1F (Huey) helicopter for desert operations. After eight years on active duty, Bill was honorably discharged after completing his service on station as the Base Industrial Engineer for the attached Civil Engineering Squadron. For the next thirty-five years, Bill was active in the home finance business as a manager and instructor for various financial institutions involved in mortgage finance and residential and commercial construction. Over the years Bill began writing short stories for the enjoyment of his immediate family, and the men and women in various service groups he was involved with. During that time he introduced several short stories based on his military experiences to include "Rest In Pieces", "There's No Such Thing as a Gucci Flight Suit", and "Same Way Same Day" about military formation flying. Summer Warriors is Bill's debut outing writing a full-length mystery novel, with a sequel currently in the works. Actively working on several short stories and three full-length screenplays, Bill is a prolific writer of adventure and mystery fiction and non-fiction with a light comedic line of dialog woven throughout the story line. His characters are not the stereotypical hero types but revolve around over aged retired cops, strong-willed women of action, and boys coming of age when forced to manhood by the brutality of man. Married with three children and five grandchildren, Bill currently lives with his wife in Grand Haven, a small resort town on the eastern shores of Lake Michigan. Currently outlining a series of children's books with his wife, Bill is enjoying the tranquility of life that the beach town has to offer.
