If you’ve been following FanRag Sports since it’s early inception two years ago as “FanRag.com”, you probably recognize Hunter Sharpless as a regular contributor covering the NBA from every angle. He’s able to find those nuances that many writers cannot.
It was no different when Sharpless went out on a limb and reached out to Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers band, asking if he–just 19 years old at the time–could join the band and chronicle their tour. Going on tour was nothing like he expected, nothing like you’d find in the movies.
He documented his thoughts and experiences in his new book Song of the Fool: On the Road with Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers.
The book is Sharpless’ first, although he’s working on his next one already. Song of the Fool is based on his three month tour with the band, going coast to coast with stops ranging from New York City, to Fargo, North Dakota to Sacramento, California.
Sharpless is a graduate from the University of Iowa, and he now attends the University of Minnesota where he’s working on his MFA in nonfiction writing.
Versatility can be found everywhere in Sharpless’ writing. He has a recognizable writing voice in each of his stories, whether he is writing about NBA League Pass teams, his beloved Oklahoma City Thunder, religion or a touring band. It’s a voice that’s easy to read and one that brings you back.
You can find Sharpless’ book at Amazon here. You can buy it as a paperback copy or a Kindle version.
