Professor Bill Sharpe has spent his career working in everything from politics to film making. But his latest project has challenged him in a new way. Sharpe will be publishing his first novel “Death by Lethal Affection” on April 30th through Amazon.com. Sharpe describes the novel as girl meets boy, boy meets girl “and then it’s just murder.”
