About Harvey Stanbrough

Harvey Stanbrough is an award-winning writer and poet. He’s fond of saying he was born in New Mexico, seasoned in Texas, and baked in Arizona. After 21 years 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: Gervasio Arrancado writes magic realism; Nicolas Z “Nick” Porter writes spare, descriptive, Hemingway-style fiction; and Eric Stringer writes the fiction of an unapologetic neurotic. Harvey writes whatever they leave to him. You can see their full bios at

Review by: Kenneth Flowers on June 8, 2011 :
Brilliantly humorous (I could see that John was angry.)

Review by: Don Johnson on April 14, 2011 :
An excellent handbook by the old word meister himself. Harvey Stanbrough boils what would normally amount to reams of narrative into a few terse paragraphs that say it all.
Whether you’re a neophyte scribbler or a seasoned pro, you’ll find this book helpful and easy to assimilate. A bargain for anyone who wants to improve his/her craft.
