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 Unimportance of Importance

March 27, 2012

Last night I dreamed about how I used to think it was important to do something important, but now I understand that doing something important isn’t what’s important at all. In a virtual world where opinions are spouted without consideration for consequences to others’ differences, and with so little tolerance in the mix, just being kind is monumental. In a world full of snap judgments, tolerance is more important than ¬†recognition. Before judging, realization of how little one really knows might be considered. One never knows what others are thinking or what they actually know, and trying to find out isn’t important. I guess I finally understand that blogging is sharing with everyone letters one writes to oneself. By the way, I’m still working on Five Flowers (novel) and Child of the Universe (poetry). I just understand how, in the overall scheme of things, it’s not important, and that’s why I’ll keep working.
