F. John Sharp, Fiction Editor, was born in Indiana, grew up in Toledo, was schooled in Columbus, and lives in Cleveland. He plays drums and penny whistle, writes fiction and poetry, and he once saw Ned Beatty riding a bicycle in Marina del Ray. He’s neither the fastest runner, nor the slowest, and he’s halfway decent at making free throws when he’s in practice. He’ll play euchre for money, but never bets on the horses. Speaking of horses, one of his teenage jobs was collecting urine samples from race horses (yes, that’s exactly what it sounds like.)
