CUTV News Radio spotlights author Franki deMerle Vancouver, WA

– This is not our first time here and it won’t be our last. We’re spiritual beings on a physical journey. When this journey ends, we will begin a new one in a new body and a new time and place. Franki deMerle is the author of three novels, each focused on the subject of reincarnation: Deception Past, a novel of past life identity theft, murder, blackmail, and forgiveness; Dragonfly Dreams, a novel of romance and reincarnation; and Five Flowers, an historical reincarnation novel. Each novel draws on dreams, premonitions, past life regressions and memories.

“Reincarnation is a subject that interests me. I personally believe in it, but you don’t have to believe in reincarnation to read my novels,” says deMerle. “Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, it offers great structures for a novel.”

deMerle started writing poetry when she was only 15 years old out of an emotional need to express herself and her deepest feelings. She grew up Huntsville, Alabama, during the Civil Rights Movement, and would listen to Dr. Martin Luther King on the radio in her bedroom, much to the dismay of her parents who did not subscribe to Dr. King’s message of equality.  “This is why I’m a writer, I believe,” says deMerle. “I’m a sensitive person and sensitive to others, but most importantly I have something to say about tolerance.”

deMerle has also published three volumes of poetry: Ripples On the Surface, deMerle’s earliest collection of poetry, often described as mystical, which includes poems deMerle wrote from the 1960s to 2006; Child of the Universe, which covers 2006 to 2010; and her most recent book of poetry entitled A Call to Contemplation.  “My poetry is a search for meaning, beauty and harmony in a world of contention and conflict,” says deMerle. deMerle says if there is one thing she hopes readers glean from her writing it’s compassion and forgiveness.

CUTV News Radio will feature Franki deMerle in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on January 10th at 2pm EST. Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.  If you have a question for our guest, call (347) 996-3389. For more information on Franki deMerle, visit http://www.reincarnationbooks.com

My Third Collection of Poetry Is Now Available

June 7, 2015

A Call to ContemplationfrontA Call to Contemplation:Amazon:Kindle Store @FrankideMerle http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YLBK0JU/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1433106523&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SY200_QL40&keywords=franki+demerle&dpPl=1&dpID=51-%2BO0LEKtL&ref=plSrch …

This is my third collection of poetry after Ripples on the Surface and Child of the Universe. It’s currently available on Kindle, but the paperback version is in the works The cover picture is a bonsai wisteria. As with my other collections, A Call To Contemplation includes my thoughts about my perspective of life in general and specific, but this one is more frequently inspired by my practice of meditation. Many of the poems were written while contemplating the beauty and serenity of my cats, my Celtic harp, and the Portland, Oregon, Japanese Gardens on the west side of town near the zoo.

With this collection, I feel I’ve completed a life’s work, although one never knows what may be written in the future. But for now, I’m focusing on writing music and more novels. I’ve just copywrited my musical “calling card”, inspired by a performance of the Oregon Symphony conducted by Carlos Kalmar at the beginning of this year. It’s called Mercurial Collection of Duets and/or Solos for Celtic Harp and Classic Guitar (my instruments) and includes six pieces: Mercury in D, Mercury in A, Mercury in E, Mercury in B, Mercury in F, and Mercury in C. I intend to find a way to publish it. This will be a first for me.

I’m getting close to finishing my next novel, Roundabout, which is a future incarnation novel. It takes place in Wick, Scotland. It will be my fourth reincarnation novel after Deception Past, Dragonfly Dreams, and Five Flowers. I’m having fun, and I hope you enjoy reading them.

For Robin Williams

for Robin Williams

So many things I’d never thought of
You spouted naturally
At a speed most can’t keep up with
You let it all flow free

You were the epitome of human being
Kindness incarnate
Not making fun of others
But of life for us to laugh

The clown crying inside
Some mock the creative fire
That enlightens and consumes us
As we forgive them and reach higher

It hurts to live with cruelty
What about this life is not?
Kindness laughing freely
I hope that’s what you’ve got

I choose to live in a place
With legal death with dignity
You chose your time and way
Someday we’ll all be free

Gentle spirit, judge me not
As I will not judge you
Smile now and forever, my friend
That’s how I’ll remember you

from A Call to Contemplation by Franki deMerle
