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.
