Inspired by a magazine article about a man who wrote a haiku a day, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Karla Mosley (Maya) set a similar goal for herself, daily writing brief “micropoems” that range from the silly to the sublime. The actress compiled a collection of her favorites into the newly-released self-published book called Short Poems For A Long And Happy Life, which is currently available in paperback at Amazon.com.
“The only reason it happened is because of the fans that I stay in touch with on social media,” Mosley explains. “I was posting haikus, and fans started asking me, ‘When are you putting a book together?’ I finally said, ‘Why not?'”
In addition to adding “published author” to her repertoire, Mosley has kept busy during B&B’s summer hiatus on the set of HART OF DIXIE, on which she recurs as the comically stereotypical Southern belle, Elodie. In July, Mosley shared with Twitter fans a setside photo of herself sporting a bright pink bow on her head for the role. “All pink. All day,” she quipped. “Must be back in Dixie.”
