Brandon Gene Petit is an indie author of prose-poetry and verse who refuses to be bound to any one subject, style or mood. The tone of his pieces can range anywhere from gothic and nostalgic, to dreamy and romantic. His collections could be described as borderline dichotomous, at times showing traces of pessimism and existentialism while other times expanding into breathable fantasies with touches of folklore and romance. He gets much of his inspiration from dreams, paintings, and everyday life, but also hints of a fascination with “past lives”, or what he more acutely describes as “past incarnation experiences” and paramnesia (déjà vu). Petit strives to speak of the past mingling with the present, in a voice of mystery, illusion and melancholy reminiscent of romantic times. In his daily life he is also a lover of music, science, psychology and art, and he enjoys sketching and playing bass guitar in his spare time. Among his other achievements include a Bachelor’s Degree in Education, as well as considerable experience working with special needs children; a profession he finds very rewarding, next to art.
