Brandon Gene Petit is an underground author of poetry – mainly prose poetry – who exudes a deep affection for dreams, synesthesia, de ja vu, romanticism, and anything to do with past lives or alternate realities. He considers himself heavily influenced by Clark Ashton Smith, H.P. Lovecraft and James Joyce, as well as paintings, photographs, dreams and nightmares, life experience, etc.
He has three books currently available: two collections of mature poetry (both of which are available in printed softcover and Kindle eBook) and a children’s coloring book featuring his own dinosaur line drawings. When he is not writing, Brandon plays bass guitar in three rock bands: Project Insanity, Bone Tomahawk, and Rigortortus. He also enjoys sketching and cartooning – both talents he has been honing since his early years – as well as experimenting with graphic design, digital photography, and music software. To date he holds a Bachelor’s in Education and an Associate’s in English, and has been releasing his written works under his own independent publishing label, Orchestrion, officially since 2010.
