About Cliff Harrison

Cliff Harrison is a writer, blogger, researcher and photographer. He is also a homeless advocate and a humanitarian. He writes to make the world a better place in which to live. He resides in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. He is currently working on both nonfiction and fiction book projects. He has several works in progress.  In addition to his nonfiction projects his works of fiction include novels as well as collections of short stories. Storytelling is his most sacred elation.

Cliff writes mainstream fiction in a variety of specialty genres such as horror, western, crime-detective-mystery-suspense and action-adventure. His interests vary as have been the experiences of his life. His storytelling reflects this keen focus on life’s adventures. He doesn’t believe that one must write exclusively for a single genre as is the common perception. He believes a writer has to correctly identify his audience and tell a good story in whatever genre he writes–be a good storyteller and everything else will come natural.

He has substantially reduced his blogging and attention with his self-hosted websites in order to apply more time to his book writing adventures.  During available time, his numerous sites are undergoing restructure to develop a new focus and direction of media and communications management.  The restructure of existing and startup publications will provide an enhanced publishing experience for the readers in a broader yet more focused and defined audience.

He has also temporarily  withdrawn from most social networking due to the perceived division of the people and what he considers harmful, widespread hatred which seems to be spreading on social network sites. His restructured writing will focus on works and ideas to promote greater harmony among humans and the need for more peaceful solutions to our many political, social, economic and religious problems. Sometimes fiction is the better avenue to present the solutions to the problems. Fiction also often provides a more favorable and acceptable format if presented correctly.  That is what Cliff is trying to accomplish in the renewal of his writing and art in the humanities and in his work in his humanitarian projects. Rather than to hang like an uneven picture on a wall of frustration, a more balanced image ought to be observed and represented in the renewed theater presentation.

My Books & Publishing Company

Most novels and works of fiction will generally be under the abbreviated name, Cliff Harrison, while most nonfiction works are usually penned under the full legal name, Clifford G. Harrison. It just gives readers an easy guide to my writing. This is not usually true of my blogs and social pages which are almost always under Cliff Harrison. There may be some variation of this, especially if a blog idea spins off as a book. Cliff Harrison’s World of Quotes is under the abbreviated name, book projects likewise. Soon my books will begin being released under the Sunrise Mountain Publishing imprint. My BOOKS will be available at the following websites:

In the far left sidebar at the top is a list of pages, many with Native American videos and items. Enjoy! And, thanks for visiting and following.

COMING SOON: ~The Gerry Spence Story~

~The Gerry Spence Story will soon be open to the public for viewing. The currently private story can be found in the "Pages" section found at the top left of the gray section of this blog when it is opened to the public. It will have a little bit of writing and commentary by me about one of my greatest mentors and most respected attorney in America.

Spence is America's greatest trial lawyers, bar none. There will be many video, similar to the story-videos in the other pages found in the listing that present an insider's look at the charismatic couple of Mr. and Mrs. Gerry Spence.

The accompanying website links and videos contribute to a broader story of one of my most respected professionals. Gerry's charming wife, Imaging, is a magnificent designer and when you see the home she designed you'll understand why she has so much charm and imagination. ~


I'm currently focused on my book projects and will not be revisiting my websites, blogs, social pages or photo galleries for sometime (EXCEPT FOR RARE OCCASIONS) while I am completing these book manuscripts. Thank you ever so much for your support. I hope to reconnect with all of you soon. You are all such a wonderful group and such a joy to share with. THANK YOU!
