About Harvey Stanbrough

Because he is unable to do otherwise, Harvey Stanbrough splits his writing personality among four personas. When asked why, he most often replies, "Hey, Roses are red and violets are blue; I'm schizophrenic and so am I."
As Harvey Stanbrough, he writes poetry and nonfiction, various publications of which have been nominated the Frankfurt (Germany) 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. Harvey also copyedits for other writers and teaches writing in Southeast Arizona and (soon) online. Harvey 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 bachelor’s degree at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales in 1996. Oh, and he also writes a little fiction under his own name (see below).
As his alter egos—Gervasio Arrancado, Nicolas Z "Nick" Porter, and Eric Stringer, all of whom are close friends except maybe Eric—he writes (respectively) magic realism, spare Hemingway fiction, and the fiction of an unapologetic neurotic. You can see the full bios of Gervasio, Nick and Eric—including their photos (hey, a persona needs a life of its own)—on their own respective Smashwords pages. Thanks for stopping by.
