long biography

Brennan Harvey is an award-winning speculative fiction author of dozens of short stories and two novels. He was the first-place winner of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest for the 1st quarter, 2010. His work has appeared in anthologies and magazines, and is available on Amazon.

In high school, Brennan won a certificate for "Composing an exceptional article for the CDC bulletin." He promptly forgot about this, until he found the award in 2002. He first realized he had a talent for writing in college, when his teacher asked for permission to publish one of his short stories in the school paper. The deadline had passed, unfortunately, and the story was not accepted.

During his work life, one of his bosses stated that he documented projects and communicated in writing better than any of his peers. It was after this that he started writing on a "hobby" basis. As he got more serious, he took creative writing classes. He finished 1/3 of his first novel "EVE320," before learning that few first-time novelists ever get published. So, he shelved the novel, and started writing short stories.

His first short story, "In the Service of Others," was a finalist in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest. "This isn't as hard as I thought," he reasoned. Little did he know it would be years until he achieved any similar success.

Brennan's first published short story, "Willow's Bend" was a initally a class paper for a creative writing class. The story was published in Teacakes and Afternoon Tales: New Stories from Mississippi. His first novel, "EVE320," is a 110,000 word endeavor that is currently out to potential agents. He's polishing his second novel, "The Nine-Finger Revolution," Meanwhile, Brennan is working on his third novel.

Brennan has served as the Meeting Coordinator for the Southern California Writers Association, Membership Chairperson for S.F. Novelist, and is the Organizer of the Long Beach Writers Meetup group. He has attended the La Jolla Writers Conference and Literary Orange since 2007 and attended Uncle Orson's Writing Class in 2008. He attended his first Nebula Awards Ceremony (as an observer) in 2009.
