MythArc: The Authors

Sharon K. Gilbert

Sharon K. Gilbert Born in the rolling hills of southern Indiana to Appalachian parents, Sharon brings a rich heritage to her writing.  A childhood spent meandering crooked streams and dancing meadows coupled with a degree in molecular biology and a short career in opera have created a patchwork personality that feels at home with many genres.

Sharon has lived here, there, and everywhere, preferring her native Indiana to all other lands.  While living in Indianapolis, Sharon, whose name was then Sharon Ferguson, sang jingles with the likes of Sandy Patty and Steve Green, through whom she met David Clydesdale, then of Singspiration Music.  As a born-again Christian, Sharon happily said yes to a one-year tour as the featured vocalist with Clydesdale's CCM group, Life Unlimited.  The group recorded eleven albums, and toured the continental U.S., Canada, and the U.K.

Later, as an older student at both the University of Nebraska and Indiana University, Sharon studied human genetics, music, literature, and history, giving her a well-rounded approach to learning and a full quiver for writing.

Married to Derek Gilbert, a writer himself, Sharon is stepmother to a precocious and very gifted teenager named Nicole.  As she finishes the final touches on the various MythArc manuscripts, Sharon makes time for church, her family, a bit of gardening, and the pack of three dogs who run the Gilbert household.  The Gilberts reside in Manchester, Missouri.  Sharon also doubles as Publishing Manager for deeperPublishing and Bay Bridge Press, the deepercalling publishing imprints.

Derek P. Gilbert

Derek P. Gilbert In the twenty years since graduating from college with a degree in Economics, Derek Gilbert has worked as a Top 40 radio disk jockey (he was once world famous in Peoria), a real estate salesman, the manager of a tuxedo shop, PA announcer at high school hockey games, and a salesman of steel pipe now used in power plants and offshore oil rigs all over the world.

Born in Chicago, just a long Sosa homer away from Wrigley Field, Derek's radio career took him from Peoria and Chicago in the Midwest, to Philadelphia out east, and then south to Little Rock before finally bringing him back to the Midwest -- Saint Louis, an area he loves for its values, cost of living, and most of all, toasted ravioli.

For over twenty years, Derek sang the high tenor part in a series of barbershop quartets.  His quartets performed regularly in the Saint Louis area, including several appearances on Saint Louis radio and TV.

Derek's interests include reading, teaching Christian apologetics, rooting for the Cubs, unraveling conspiracy theories, scratching the family dogs, and letting daughter Nicole beat him on the GameCube.

Despite being out of the public eye, now that he's hung up his headphones, bowties, and striped vest, Derek is enjoying life more than ever as husband and father to the two most beautiful, intelligent, and talented women on Earth.

Derek has always been fascinated by the way things work and how things got to be the way they are.  It was his study of evidence for the authenticity of the New Testament documents that awakened him to the battle raging around us.

It is this battle that inspires his writing.
