Brent writes in a simple language, offering a direct approach in conveying the complexities of emotion and experience. Sound, cadence and repetition drive much of Brent's word selection, drawing inspiration from great poets like Anne Sexton, Essex Hemphill, W.H. Auden, and Robert Frost.

Styled in free expression, Brent exposes deeply personal subjects with familiar and relatable wisdom as mindful exploration of self-understanding

Having published Survivor in 2001, Brent presently composes a new volume of poetry entitled A Bee In My Bedsheets.
