Nicolas Z. Porter (the adventurer/writer persona of Harvey Stanbrough) is an expatriate, having moved in better times to a small place in the hills above the fishing village of Agua Rocosa. He is an adventurer who enjoys deep-sea fishing, trout fishing in the back country, engaging intimately in the revolutionary struggles of other lands, and any other endeavors that might serve to refill the well of experience from which he draws his stories. He unapologetically takes full responsibility for his own life and flatly refuses to accept responsibility for poor choices made by others. He has been known to say, “You set your own priorities, so don’t whine about it. The whining destroys my concentration.” See more work by Nick at HarveyStanbrough.com.
