Bio

Profile FBI still need to do a lot of work on the profile before releasing it for publication. Until everything is more fully organized I’ll use this page for a general heads up page.

[Note: This page is not identical to the “Bio pages” of the blogs listed below. Those blogs do not contain this note or the next three paragraphs. And, this page has additionally been slightly edited.]

(I borrowed this page from my three newest blog-writing adventures listed in the next paragraph below this note so that my readers may get a feel of just why I’m NOT producing like Stephen King, James Patterson, Stephenie Meyer or Jo Rowling,  or even the great Leo Tolstoy but more like or nearly identical to the beautiful and creative wordsmith Laura Hillenbrand, author of bestselling hits, Seabiscuit and Unbroken. I suffer from the same medical condition Miss Laura does. It slows me down, but it doesn’t stop me. And it won’t stop me until my heart stops beating.

To be a great blogger accumulating a huge fan list requires constant posting and publishing of short content in few words. I’m not interested in acquiring a huge fan list. I’m interested in creating a volume of writing that will spark brush fires in a few minds that will carry the torch to the next generation in a world of darkness that needs more illumination and peace than hate, conflicts and wars–a world that needs more humanitarianism with more volunteers. People willing to use their own time and money and less force of using other people’s money to pay salaries and fund programs to achieve common goals.

My writing reflects just how to achieve that in fiction and nonfiction storytelling. My characters offer a balanced approach with views from both sides debating the issues fairly. Oftentimes people ask me, why so many blogs, websites and writing sites? It’s against good advice which is to have one or two good ones. The answer is, each one is its own book, its own project. Its own specific subject. I’m a generalist with a vast universe of material, but my writing sites are specialists specializing specific subjects unless they are a collection. I also have numerous private blogs or writing centers which act as storage backup to the actual manuscripts, works-in-progress, formats to allow publishers, editors, literary agents and such to read my work without it actually being published in public. I’ve also used private blogs for communication with friends or a closed group of people on various subjects. So, the imagination and experimentation allows the ability to lead a life that is not nearly as boring as it could be. As a closing note, this “Bio” is not that of the real autobiography detailing my life as described in full-length writings elsewhere. Much material is currently private due to seeking commercial publication, reworking and/or described in the navigation pages of websites currently private or under reconstruction.)

Currently many of the public blogs in the Cliff Harrison at WordPress group are sporadic publications without a consistent schedule. The same applies to my three other writing publications in the group, By Storyteller Cliff Harrison, Writer’s Lair and Vegas Valley. I’m working the best I can to get the sites organized and up to the professional standards I demand from all my publishing endeavors.

I have a number of projects in the works simultaneously and although that never used to be a problem for me it has since my severe chronic fatigue syndrome has intensified. Sometimes I’m rendered dysfunctional for days, weeks, even months upon end. A number of other health problems interferes with my ability to produce in a timely manner like I used to, yet I refuse to surrender to “disability” and forsake my purpose. I apologize for any discomfort this may cause you. I hope it doesn’t interfere with a periodic visit from you. The multiple health problems can only delay my production output, it can’t halt it or discourage me into surrendering my greatest joy in life–writing & storytelling.

This site is intended as a general reference only and is not intended to replace any professional advice one may have which may or may not be contrary to my own opinions and statements. Often the articles and stories contained herein are expressions of how I do something personally or what I have found on exploration or deeper research into the subject matter.

All of my writing is based on three primary elements: Experience, Research & Imagination. That statement applies equally to my vast slush pile and collection of nonfiction and fiction manuscripts.

I write, in the words of my late and beloved cousin Debbie, “…to make the world a better place in which to live.” I write in the profession of my late and beloved brother, Kenny. I write to teach. Writing is the universal method of educational lessons in the written language. Readers are the students of those lessons. Great readers become good writers who pass the torch of generations through the teachings of the spoken and written word. The circle is unbroken. The pen is the most powerful weapon in the world & the writer is the master of minds.

Some of the articles and stories in this publication were previously published in substantially the same form in the Cliff Harrison Media Group since 2006. Other media published my work, some commercially even earlier than 2006, in both electronic and print form. Some material is substantially edited to enhance a more recent manuscript draft. While other edits, revisions or rewrites updates previously published work in my own network of media & communications as well as previously released in commercial publications in which I retain the rights to. In most of those cases, I sold my stories by assigning only the standard First North American serial rights to the newspapers and magazines that printed them. Therefore I retained full ownership of my intellectual and literary property.

As mentioned above, the same statements applies to my three other writing publications in the group, By Storyteller Cliff Harrison, Writer’s Lair and Vegas Valley.

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:

Aho!

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. ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~NOTICE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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!
