K. R. Lobel has had poetry and short stories published in The Blue Moon Review, The Porter Gulch Review and Matrix Magazine. More of her poetry can be read at the national poetry site Locuspoint.org (Volume 3, San Francisco.) She spent seven years doing research for The Flower Daughter.
The Flower Daughter is the story of an independent spirit through seven incarnations.
Ani and her father are the ultimate examples of the power struggles between a failing matriarchy and a rising patriarchy.
When Ani is challenged to offer her father a peaceful resolution to their conflict, she unequivocally refuses. But their violent deaths throw her into millenniums of life experiences.
