A Bear called Frank

Waiting for Frank Bear is released over thext 24 hours or so and I’m delighted that good friend and Melbourne author ANdrea Flory (Meeks) has posted an encouragement to buy on her blogging page.

I’m delighted on behalf of the Bears. I still find them irresistable creatures and hope that the Book does them justice.

Pop over and take a look.

Thank you so much, Andrea.

Meeka's Mind

No, this is not a post about a personable grizzly – we don’t have any in Australia. The closest we get is the legendary ‘Drop Bear’.

<<cue hysterical laughter>>

<<cough>>

No, this post is about my good friend Frank Prem and the Beechworth Bakery Bears he has come to know and love. Frank is an Aussie poet-storyteller who brought me to tears with his stories of the Black Saturday bushfires that killed so many in our state. This time, however, Frank has created a beautiful book about teddy bears:

These gastronomic Bears greet customers in the Beechworth Bakery, Victoria, Australia

I love teddy bears and have a whole shelf full keeping me company in my office, so I fell in love with the Bakery Bears at first sight!

In the latest Bear book – Waiting for Frank Bear – Frank gives voice to these cuddly Bears and shows us their…

The Bears have entered the building . . .

Next week I have an author appearance to make at a local Library in Yackandandah. Not far from where I live. The topic will be two-fold - my 'a love poetry trilogy' of books (which has never really had an airing in public) and to talk about self-publishing. It feels a little ironic, because the … Continue reading The Bears have entered the building . . .

Robbie’s Inspiration – Guest post by Frank Prem and a review

It’s my pleasure to invite visitors to my blog to pop over to Robbie cheadle’s place – Robbie’s Inspiration.

Today I’ve chatted with her and her vistors a little about The Bakery Bears, and why they engage me so much that I’ve written two books about them, now, with Waiting For Frank-Bear just about to be released.

Robbie has also posted her review of the new book and it is just lovely to read.

The Bears will be delighted when I mention it to them!

Robbie has also featured another collage of Bakery Bear photographs with the article.

Thank you, Robbie.

Robbie's inspiration

Today, I am delighted to welcome poet and author, Frank Prem, to Robbie’s Inspiration with a post about his The Beechworth Bakery Bears series of books.

What is it about Bakery Bears?

I can’t really begin to examine my literary aspirations for The Beechworth Bakery Bears books without recounting the context for my becoming aware of them.

Background to the first book – The Beechworth Bakery Bears

By profession I am a Psychiatric Nurse, and have had enough years of performing shift work for the thrill of rocking up to the job for a 7am start to have worn off, a little. So, what I like to do is to create a little contemplative bubble around myself before my early shifts start.

A little after 6am, (before Covid 19 struck), I would approach the Beechworth Bakery, often still in pre-dawn darkness. The Bakery is the only place in town that…
