E. Don Harpe
Award winning author E. DON HARPE has had a varied career, from military service in the 60's to years spent as an industrial engineer for a major appliance firm, and more years as a manager in a call center that specialized in computer troubleshooting.
Harpe is a published Nashville songwriter, and his book Music City Myth offers advice for anyone who is thinking of giving the world of country music a try.
His work with the story of his ancestors, the Terrible Harpe Brothers, who are known as America's First Serial Killers, is the backbone of a documentary that will air in early 2016 on the Investigation Discovery Channel. In addition to supplying much of the source material, Harpe will be the main person on screen. The Harpe story is one of our country's long established legends, and the television program looks to generate major renewed interest in it.
Now retired and living in Georgia, Harpe devotes his time to Helen, his wife of nearly 50 years, to his family, and to his writing.
"I'm pretty satisfied in my own skin right now," Harpe says, "and I just want to continue to write things that will entertain and hold the readers interest."
