ABOUT ME

I am a Frenchman who lives in London (UK).

I believe poetry to be about musicality and rhythm, that it should engage our emotions and experiences through powerful and creative images. I have a preference for rhymes, although I can dabble in free verse as well.

A Vow - A Collection of Love Poems is my first poetry collection in English. It features 'An Argument' (winner, 3rd place, Momaya Poetry Competition 2018), and poems previously published in an anthology (Poetry Review 2018: Love) and various international publications (Writing Magazine, The Wild Word...). 

A Vow was described as being 'a splendid collection' by Ayo Gutierrez (TV host and publisher, author of Yearnings); 'poetry at its finest' by Edentu Oroso (publisher, author of Richer than Pride); 'a gorgeous book... a commanding jolt of the beauty of love' by JinQue R.D. (author of Someone Painted the World Black); and 'a ray of hope for all those old-school romantics' by Divyanshi Sharma (journalist and blogger, writing in Hiraeth). Readers gave it a 5 star rating on Goodreads

I am a member of The Poets League, a group of bestselling poets spearheading GMGA Publishing. I also run Burning Words Poetry, a YouTube channel dedicated to poetry.  

Besides writing, I love my job as a Care Support Worker, reading a lot of stuff about a lot of stuff, and headbanging on metal music. 

I am currently working on editing a poetry anthology dedicated to fathers and fatherhood, from which I intend to donate all proceeds to the UK charity Families Need Fathers. If you are interested, please get in touch...
