Born at the end of the Vietnam war and raised on a horse farm near small town north Georgia, his imagination evolved under the swaying pines surrounding his family’s log home. On summer days that were too hot, winter days that were too cold, and every night into the wee morning hours, he read books.

In addition to writing, he has been a submarine sailor, nurse, and business owner. His studies have included biology, anthropology, and medicine at UCSB and SUNY Buffalo. He is an active member of SCBWI and lives in sunny southern California with his beautiful wife and two perfect children. He writes like he reads, constantly.

Hi Danny,
Thanks for your compliment on The Last Orphans! It made my day to hear that you enjoyed it. If you have a chance, it would be awesome if you posted a review on Amazon and GoodReads, even a short one. No pressure though, I'm just happy you read my book and enjoyed it.

Joshua's Tree is my earliest work, and it's not as impressive as The Last Orphans in my opinion, but many people have enjoyed it. It's published through another publisher and so is not available through all the formats that The Last Orphans is. If you'd like, I can email you a free copy of Joshua's Tree. Just provide and email address and let me know what format you prefer (.epub, pdf, or Kindle (.prc)). You might want to message me through GoodReads instead of posting your email in this stream because it is visible to the public. ;-)

Thanks for contacting me,
Neil

The Young Adult Variety Bundle – Curated by Nick Harlow


Most of us don’t want to read the same plot over and over. Sure, we have favorite books we’ll read again, but sometimes novels of a particular genre can feel too similar.


So while I love young adult books, I like books that aren’t formulaic.

“Opening his eyes, Shane searched the darkness. Where was he? It didn’t take long to realize this wasn’t his bed—he couldn’t be at home. He lay on cold, hard concrete in a puddle of water. Confusion and disorientation caused a surge of panic to boil through him. And then he noticed he was curled around a warm body. Silky hair tickled his nose, smelling faintly of roses and lavender.”
N.W. Harris, The Last Orphans

“What if they were the last people alive on the planet?”
N.W. Harris, The Last Orphans

“I said get out, damn it,” Dad repeated, spittle flying from his mouth. “I won’t have a sixteen-year-old boy bawl’n like a little girl all the way home. Man up or walk.” Too much wine had left Dad’s teeth and lips stained red, and Shane could smell the alcohol, even over the foul stench of Jackie’s cigarette. His aunt had whispered an apology to Shane at the funeral reception, saying she’d only put wine out because she didn’t think his dad would drink it. What she didn’t realize was Dad had become such a raging alcoholic that he would’ve”
