Voices de la Luna Gathering on Wednesday

Voices de la Luna
A Quarterly Poetry & Arts Magazine
Wednesday, June 27th, at 7 p.m.
Barnes and Noble--Shops at La Cantera

Voices de la Luna is featuring me, yes me,
Floyd L. Lamrouex, at their monthly venue
at the Shops at La Cantera.
So, I am asking all of you who support
Awaken the Sleeping Poet to come out and
support me Wednesday night.

Floyd L. Lamrouex, who writes under the pen name Michaud L. Lamrouex, is a native Texan and a practicing attorney in San Antonio, Texas. He received his BA honors degree from Howard Payne University, and a Juris Doctor degree and an MBA degree from Texas Tech University.

Lamrouex is a published writer whose articles have appeared in the Texas Bar Journal and the BMW Roundel. He is also an aspiring novelist, having completed book One, Child of Light, and book Two, Warrior, Wizard, and Healer in a fantasy series entitled, The Daystar, for which he is currently seeking a publisher (and is well into writing books Three and Four of the Daystar Series).

His most recent published writing has been in the area of poetry, and in his collection entitled Oasis in the Sky, he combines his story-telling ability with his skill in writing poetry. His poetry has been published in Inkwell Echoes, Voices Along the River, The Dreamcatcher, the Poetry Society of Texas’ Book of the Year, A Galaxy of Verse, and the San Antonio Express-News. He has already received numerous awards for his poetry, including first places at both local and state levels, and he was recently the spotlighted poet for the Poetry Society of Texas.

Lamrouex serves the San Antonio Poets Association as Treasurer and Webmaster, and has also served as membership chairman, and program chairman. He is legal counsel for A Galaxy of Verse, and he is a councilor-at-large, Webmaster, and legal counsel for the Poetry Society of Texas. He is also legal counsel and Parliamentarian for the National Federation of State Poetry Societies, Inc., and he is chairman of the board of directors for the Laurel Crown Foundation, a non-profit literary organization for the promotion of poetry and art in the San Antonio area. Lamrouex is the host of Awaken the Sleeping Poet, a monthly poetry venue at the Northwoods Barnes & Noble in north San Antonio and a second Awaken the Sleeping Poet venue close to downtown at the Twig Book Store.

In addition to writing poetry and supporting poetry at the local, state, and national levels, Lamrouex enjoys ballroom dancing and loves the challenge and adrenalin rush of dangerous pursuits such as sky diving and rock climbing, but he also enjoys the more sedate pleasures of restoring classic BMWs and Jaguars, training Border Collies, building computers, composing music, and playing trumpet and flugel in his church’s orchestra.
