Read Excerpts from Jéanpaul's work


Jéanpaul Ferro's poems welcome you in and pour you a glass of the good stuff, with sinuous music in the background and dark wind in the trees outside to make you want to stay. - Tom Chandler | Providence Journal

Jéanpaul Ferro's work reaches inside the human heart and pulls out into the light what we often ignore.   Poignant and articulate, Ferro should be considered one of the great voices of our generation.  
- Corrine De Winter | Stoker Award Winner and Author of "Virgin of the Apocalypse"
