Author Details

Pen Name
Steven Harz
Where I Live
United States
Steven Harz is the author of multiple collections of love stories and is a multi-time winner of The Iron Writer Challenge. Originally from West Virginia, he grew up in Maryland, and now lives in New England. You may recognize these places in his stories.

Steven did not begin writing until in his 40s, needing that time to collect, and weed through, the things he’d collected throughout his life. Spending much of his time inside his own head, healthy or not, much of what he writes comes out of the noise that’s in there.

If you are looking for flowery love stories you’ve come to the exact wrong place. Steven refuses to write in such a way that the reader needs a companion dictionary to figure out what he’s trying to convey – he wants to paint a sweet and simple picture, not perform unnecessary vocabulary gymnastics (if he ever uses the word ‘osculation’ rather than ‘kiss’ he gives you full permission to smack him if you see him on the street).

His series, “Backroad Love Stories,” covers various topics and moves between stories that, on one end of the spectrum resemble the lyrics of a country love song, to the other end where his words cut into the reader, reminding them of the pain caused by loves gained and lost.
Steven’s words have been highlighted in in Inwood Indiana Press' Tracks, Voices 2, Donut Factory, Words+Pictures, Ink Monkey Magazine, The Germ, The Voices Project, Pocket Thoughts, and Indigo Rising UK.

Steven Harz is a graduate of Towson University’s College of Fine Arts and Communication. He loves music and reading, coffee and Dr Pepper, sports and Broadway, and watching his boys perform on stage and the baseball diamond.
