Born and raised in the middle of the American Midwest, Dennis Sharpe has been a writer as long as he can remember. His mother has told many people about the fantasy and science fiction stories he'd write on scraps of paper, and staple together as his 'books', before he'd attended his first day of formal education.

He has spent many late nights at diners and dives, drinking coffee with a tattered notebook to put a voice to his feelings of himself and the world around him, and other worlds that can exist only in fiction. The voices in his head don't ever stop talking to him, and so sooner or later he has to get out onto a page all that they've filled him up with.

Inspired by Neil Gaiman, Kurt Vonnegut, Frank Miller, Joss Whedon, Chrissie Pappas

(I'm not a fan of GIFs)    I was having a discussion with a friend about my "Childhood Hollywood Crushes." Why does that matter? Well, it started me thinking about the topic. That led to me dwelling on the topic. In turn, that led to me actually make a year by year list, starting in 1984 (when I was seven and first remember crushing on someone on TV or in a film) and ending in 1991 (when I was...
