Cyrus Parkercyrus parker is a pro-wrestler-turned-poet, hailing from a small town in new jersey, living with his poetess fiancée, amanda lovelace. originally from michigan, where he spent half a decade working on the local independent wrestling scene, cyrus is now trading his literal dropkicks for literary dropkicks as he puts wrestling on the backburner to pursue his other passion, writing.

a creative writing major at brookdale community college in lincroft, nj, the self-proclaimed DROPKICKpoet has set out on a journey to find his voice, and himself, through the written word. when he’s not illegibly scrawling away in his journal or typing away on his next project, cyrus can be found napping excessively after consuming massive amounts of coffee, or wandering the world, trying to be the very best pokémon master that ever lived.

the forthcoming DROPKICKromance is cyrus’ debut poetry collection.




release date: 3/6/18
publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
