Non-binary poet Cyrus Parker returns with an all-new collection of poetry and prose dedicated to those struggling to find their own identity in a world that often forces one into the confines of what's considered "socially acceptable."

Divided into three parts and illustrated by Parker, masquerade grapples with topics such as the never-ending search for acceptance, gender identity, and relationships, and the struggle to recognize your own face after hiding behind another for so long.

* UNIQUE VOICE & PERSPECTIVE: As a professional-wrestler-turned-poet, Cyrus Parker offers a unique voice and perspective.
* SOCIAL: 8.1k Instagram followers
* EMERGING WRITER: Parker is working on a degree in creative writing, and his poems have been published in his college's award-winning literary magazine, Collage. He has also been featured on Writers Resist and Poetic Interviews.
* MARRIED TO AMANDA LOVELACE: Parker is the spouse of poet Amanda Lovelace, who is a rising star in the poetry world. Parker will appeal both to Amanda Lovelace's large fan-base and a more general readership.
