{back to About Paul}


I was born in Bloomington, Indiana on March 19, 1965. I am the only child between Paul J. Sharits and Frances Trujillo-Sharits. My parents separated and divorced when I was 3. I grew up just west of Denver near the world famous Red Rocks amphitheater which is coincidentally where I live again. I have two half-sisters and one half brother. We all live within ten minutes of each other.

I married my high school sweet heart in Lakewood, Colorado on August 11, 1984. We moved to San Francisco when we were married and then when Paul died we moved to Buffalo, NY where I finally finished my BA in Political Science. In 1997, we moved back to Denver so I could work on my MA in International Security at The University of Denver's Graduate School of International Studies. In addition to my other studies, I have recently completed my MA in Education/Instructional Design. My PhD in Educational Technologies at Walden University is currently on financial hold. Cheri and I have three boys, Gregory Paul, 23; Jeffrey Patrick, 21; and Bobby 16.

With help, I run my father's flurishing Art/film Estate, write and paint. While I mostly write freelance articles, I just published my first fiction novel named "Night in Positano." Its about a bipolar teen who leaves the security of his circle of trust to visit his father and decides to go off of his meds which eventually leads to his attempted suicide. The book can be found on several eBook outlets like Amazon, Apple, and Lulu .
