It feels so good to be writing again! I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. It's been a rough few months, but I'm happy to be back to posting regular installments for my romantic comedy, Cinnamon Rolls and Running Shoes! It will warm your heart like a warm tasty pastry. There is a new chapter available today and there will be another chapter available Sunday! After that, I'm planning to release chapters on a weekly basis. I'm going to work hard to keep this momentum going! If you're a writer, how are you holding up? Let me know in the comments or through a message!

Relocating is taking longer than expected, especially having a child this go around.  I cannot wait until I have my home office setup and get back to posting.  I am working on being more consistent in posting and writing.  A new installment for He Completes Me will be released soon.

I just wrote the title poem of my sixth book of poetry, a work-in-progress, called "The Meandering". The Meandering is the name of a creek along the River Jordan between the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea that forms the border between the countries of Israel and Jordan. The funny thing about it is that the Meandering part of the border keeps on shifting and changing with each rain erasing a previously existing sand bank on one side and depositing a new sand bank on the other side, and sometimes drying up altogether. I used to have to patrol along The Meandering.

I'm also working on a new book of poems in Hebrew, called "לא מאותו מסטינג" ("Not from the Same Messkit"). You'd have to have served in the Israeli Army (IDF) to understand the title of the book.

I guess I've been a tad remiss in not keeping you all up-to-date with what's happening with me these days. To get you up to speed, I just published my fifth book of poetry, "The Hoopoe's Call", which runs 138 pages. Interestingly enough, I published it a year to the day after I published my fourth poetry book, "Call of the Whippoorwill". If anyone's interested, I only write when I'm inspired to do so, and it usually takes me a week or two to get inspired. I usually have no idea what I'm going to write next until the inspiration runs over me like an eighteen wheeler out of hell.

Oh, and another interesting item: I happened to see a poem by A.A. Paar, also a Channillo series writer ("I Wrote You this Poem") who writes poems to strangers who send her a message. I sent her a message that her poem reminded me of a poem I had witten. So she wrote a poem about me, based on the poem I had sent her. Then I sent her a poem about the poems she writes to strangers, called "Knower of Strangers". Maybe we'll get a poetry dialectic going back-and-forth. Could be interesting. We're all strangers to some extent. Some people are stranger than others though.

 Til next time ...

I hope everyone is staying healthy in body, mind, and soul during this surreal period in history. I'm sure all of you, my fellow writers, are leaning on your creativity with words to stay sane right now! I'm looking forward to reading what you're creating during this moment when the whole world seems to be holding its breath for what's next. Health and happiness to you and yours!

I have sadly missed keeping up to date here but the last two years have been hectic. I have a new thriller I am getting excited about - "The Bilderberg Diary" - that will be finished next year. In the meantime, I am in collaboration with another author and we are writing an autobiography that should be finished by Christmas. My last book, "Little Gems," is posted here and shortly I will be posting my poetry book that is a little unique. It includes several lyric sets for Blues numbers along with poems and a hilarious set of "From our own Correspondent" news flashes about two American ladies who have an adventure visiting Irland. In fact the two ladies are my late wife and her friend. Not to be missed if you want to laugh over a cup of tea. Last - a sample of the start of my latest thriller.

At first, it looked as though Adam had mailed an empty envelope. A silly joke or reminder of the wedding perhaps. Jessica knew it was from him. The Czech stamps gave it away. No-one else would write to her from Prague. She opened the envelope and was puzzled to find a torn diary page with the name Jozef Novotny embossed across the top. Below were a scribbled message and a small business card. Her heart began to thump, and she caught her breath as she read the note.

Aurora, if anything happens to me, you must find this diary a Czech official is hiding. She wants to cross the road and will bring this diary she stole from Erik Novotny. Listen to her and trust her and no-one else. Enda will know who to give the journal too. Stay away from the embassy.

Jessica stood looking at the note, speechless. A small card embossed with the Da Capo Cafe & Cocktail Bar legend dropped out of the envelope. She picked it up and turned it over. Inked on the back was Every Tuesday 7.00 Table 22.

And so the story starts...

May 2020 News

"The Librarian's Secret Diary" is now up and running every Wednesday. Nina is the new librarian on the block and she writes about the quirks of the library in her diary. Her senior librarian hates reading, somebody is defacing the romance books, the printer is out to get her, and the inter-library-loan guy is kinda cute. Keep an eye out for the Library Bear who developed a whole subplot of his own when I was writing this one.

Celaine Charles commented on Colors:
   "Hello friends! I wanted to pop on and express my gratitude to my followers still enjoying my Poetry series, Colors. I have been busy writing fiction lately, and wanted to update everyone on what's up in my little corner of the world! First of all, it was an honor to win three awards through Channillo for my series, Colors, as my heart is all over the poems in this collection. I selected half of the poems (my favorites), wrote a few new poems, then put them together to publish a book, Colors Collected (available on Amazon). I also have three treasured poems in last year's Channillo Holiday Series. Thank you Kara Klotz for all your support and the opportunity to grow as a writer! Today I am excited to announce I have accepted a book contract to publish my Contemporary Fantasy, Seam Keepers! It won't be available for a year or so, but to know it is coming has me in an emotional and elated state! I know my fellow writers will understand. I still have a new series I have been planning just for Channillo, so will hopefully get that to you soon. I'm writing in so many different mindsets right now, it's hard to balance everything with my daily life. But, I'm not complaining - only praying to the motivation to carry out all my dreams and goals. THANK YOU readers and followers and writers and friends! I appreciate your support and will use it to continue growing as a writer. I hope all of you are doing well! I miss my time on Channillo, and am looking forward to checking back in and picking up where I left off. Cheers! CC"

Mike Stone commented on I Wrote You This Poem:
   "Hi Ms. Parr, I happened to read this poem, which I liked very much, and was reminded of a poem I wrote almost eight years ago. I also have a poetry series on Channillo. Maybe we won't be strangers anymore. Here's the poem. Mike Stone "Walking to the Moon" (Raanana, September 1, 2012) Sometimes you have to walk a poem To see the shadows of it go in front of you And then behind you, A funny kind of locomotion Walking crablike, orthogonally. It's been so long since I've written, You must have thought I'd forgotten, If you thought about me at all. No, I hadn't. Couldn't. Ever. These were the dimensions of your loveliness, The smell of sunlight on a field of wheat in your hair, The cool touch of my rough hand on your soft thigh, The vibrations of your voice as your meaning dances across it, But the publicity of your smile For all around you to see, Not just for me, Meant the sunlight soft vibrations of you Might as well be like walking to the moon. (c) 2012 Mike Stone (from "Yet another Book of Poetry")"
