Stanbrough's engaging and insightful offering for writers of all fiction subgenres--and any writer who uses dialogue-- is like eight books in one. In a low-key and conversational manner, Stanbrough [will teach you] valuable keys to combining dialogue, punctuation and sentence structure to pace and intensify crucial story elements to engage the reader's interest--and ultimately their emotional involvement in your prose. [WRD&FF is] Packed with hints, lessons and important advice.

I learned more from Harvey in a couple of months than I did thru years of taking creative writing classes and reading tons of books on the subject of writing. If you have an interest in writing, I highly recommend his books.
Jean Coggins
I just had to write you this note. I received your books a few days ago and I must say that every new writer should have your books. (Notice, I only used one exclamation point!) Punctuation for Writers and Writing Realistic Dialogue & Flash Fiction were just the books I needed!

Meet the Author

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 HEStanbrough.com.
