Interview with Billy Sharpe

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Good question! However, that all depends on the weather, time of year and possibly a family situation.
If the season is winter, I load my hunting dogs { Stella (a Brittany) and Molly (an English Setter)} whereupon we three head for the fields and woods. Stella is an excellent upland bird dog while Molly is fair, but what a beauty she is. Sad to say, if I were as good looking as she, I'd put some Hollywood actor out of work. Alas, I have the face of a Russian wild hog. On the other hand, you wouldn't have some excellent stories to read.
In the spring, I turkey hunt.
In the summer and fall, I garden on my farm with my Farmall 140.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Hunting, and gardening. During these endeavors, I dream about becoming a successful author. Usually, my best 'hunches' appear when I enjoy my hobbies.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Smashwords!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, the story turned out to be a mess. I'm 76 years old and that was sixteen years ago.
What is your writing process?
I can write anytime and any place; nevertheless, my best work takes place in my bedroom where my desk faces a blank wall.
How do you approach cover design?
I can't handle work like that. So, I hire the job; however, I give specific instructions to make certain the picture projects the subject.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The stories are terrific in these: To Kill a Mocking Bird, A Farewell to Arms, The Sun Also Rises, To Have and Have Not, The Old Man and the Sea.
What do you read for pleasure?
Stephen KIng.
