Five Flowers by Franki deMerle

October 28, 2012

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

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.


Thanksgiving/birthday 2011

November 26, 2011

Thank you for being here with me πŸ™‚ This birthday/Thanksgiving is the most wonderful so far. I have a home, the best friends in the world, doctors who really care, lots of fun and creative things to do when I’m up to it, lots of comfy places to rest, the best sister and sister in law–I HAVE JOY πŸ™‚

My 9 year old cat is playing like a kitten again. My parakeet helped raise a family of hummingbirds this year, and he’s rightfully proud. In spite of a short, mild, but perfect summer, the garden was brilliant with color and variety.

I’m currently revising my next novel, Five Flowers, with the support of my favorite writers group, The Magic Pen. And I like the way the characters have expressed themselves. Preview: Henry VIII reincarnates as Jack the Ripper and then as one of the 20th century’s most notorious serial killers, but it’s not about him–it’s about the 5 women symbolized by their flowers. It’s about choice with some paranormal fun.

I’ve also been researching the next novel, Noted. I’ve written a few scenes, and that was fun. It’s great to be able to look back at the past and learn from it, to have a present full of beauty and kindness, and some cool things to do to look forward to. Te amo mi vida πŸ™‚
Thank you everyone! Being able to share brings the joy πŸ™‚ Wishing everyone joyful thoughts and the gift of seeing the beauty around you wherever you may be. And may you be at ease in mind and body.
