Five Flowers by Franki deMerle

October 28, 2012

Five Flowers, a reincarnation novel, will be available soon in ebook & paperback from

Five women find themselves drawn together through several lifetimes. The challenges they face deal with love and betrayal and finding their way to personal independence. What is the strange attraction they feel toward the sinister man around whom they orbit like satellites? Which of them will break free, and which will fall victim to him again and again?

The five women, each symbolized by a different flower, start out as the first five wives of King Henry VIII. Then they reincarnate in Victorian London and again in California in the 1960’s. All are historical figures. I very much enjoyed having to dig deep within myself to experience their life events and choices and to understand what motivated those choices. This is very much a character driven novel. I hope the readers enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Five Flowers is published by Katmoran Publications, an independent publisher.


The Between Times by Marta Moran Bishop

October 8, 2012

Like George Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984 Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, The Between Times is a social cautionary tale. Beautifully written, it’s a short book about a small girl trying to understand what she’s not allowed to know. Although the author set the story in Chicago, it could take place anywhere, because Marta Moran Bishop wields a mighty metaphor. I had the honor and privilege to edit The Between Times, and I highly recommend it. There is magic in its pages as Jewell weaves the light of The Between Times.
