About Harvey Stanbrough

Harvey Stanbrough is fond of saying he was born in New Mexico, seasoned in Texas, and baked in Arizona. After a 21-year stint in the US Marine Corps, he managed to sneak up on a BA degree at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales in 1996. Because he is unable to do otherwise, he splits his writing personality among four personas: Harvey Stanbrough; Gervasio Arrancado; Nicolas Z "Nick" Porter; and Eric Stringer. You can see their full bios at HEStanbrough.com
Harvey Stanbrough writes poetry, fiction and nonfiction. Various works have been nominated for the Frankfurt Book Fair Award, the Foreword Magazine Engraver’s Award, the Pushcart Prize, the BEA (NY) Book of the Year Award and the National Book Award. Of his personas, Gervasio Arrancado writes magic realism; Nick Porter writes spare, descriptive fiction; and Eric Stringer writes the fiction of an unapologetic neurotic.
