Who is Sinbad the Sailor Man? Well wouldn't we all like to know, who we really are?
He is nobody special yet, at least not in the writing industry. He was
born Donald Beres Jr. in Hammond Indiana, to Carol Ann (Muskin) Beres
and Donald Beres of Pennsylvania.
Donald's Mother divorced his natural father and married Wayne L.
Douglas. The couple thought it easier to conceal the fact of his
mother's divorce from Donald's natural father.
He was raised in Hobart, Indiana as Donnie Douglas until about the age
of sixteen.When he found out that his mother had him by her first
Donnie found this out shortly after attending Hobart Junior High. He
took this news in stride but did not realize the damage that this and
the lies that followed about his natural father and half sister would
eventually unfold later in life.
He attended until his Sophomore year. He Letter in Football and Wrestling during his Freshmen year.
In 1980 he left before graduation to go to Portage Adult Night School so
he could join the US Navy with two of his childhood friends; on the
Navy's Buddy System.
But because of budget cuts that semester. Donnie was delayed six months and missed going through Boot Camp with his two Buddies.
As a result he would no longer qualify for the twenty yrs and out full
retirement. Instead he would need to do thirty years to receive that
option. Donnie's two buddies both took full advantage of that option.
On Aug 23rd 1985 Donald was Honorable Discharged from the US Navy.

after a short falling out with his Mother over being lied to about his
true identity. He started writing again, about six months after his
divorce. From his wife of ten and a half years.Which he strongly took as
a betrayal by his first true love.
He has been writing off and on ever since. He has had several Back
Surgeries and others most on his lower back. Although he was disabled
December 1998 and has been on Disability since. He has made several
attempts to return to full duty work, but failed and remains on
Disability to this day.
He has a very bad short term memory problem, brought on by almost nine
years of prescription drug use, mostly pain killers. He has bouts of
depression from time to time and has contemplated and attempted suicide
These attempts were early on in his disability. While he was on strong
Pain Killers. The ones that one should also be put on anti-depressants
with. Donald was not! He attributes his attempts on his life to this
lack of proper medication.
Among these annoying problems he has other small annoying ticks and
clicks that keep him from holding down any normal nine to five job for
One of his attempts to return to work was as a semi truck driver. He
drove for about five months but, his eyes started to fail due to high
blood pressure and now he has severe night blindness, so he can't drive
semi truck at night any more. He drove a taxi for about five months
after getting New Glasses but has since given up on trying to drive

Chicago's Children's Hospital from Indiana by helicopter. Donald dropped
a load of rubber and drove from Saint Louis Missouri, He stated to his
dispatcher the thing is floored and It wasn't stopping until I got there
or It burnt up!

Inter Net jobs, which he has not yet mastered any of those either.
