I have always had an interest in the supernatural and the possibility of reincarnation. It’s a theme that runs through my three latest books. Writing them allowed me to explore topics such as past lives, possession and reincarnation within the thriller genre. My fourth novel, The Liar’s Promise, explores the apparent reincarnation of a murdered teenage girl. She is four years old in this life, and seems to know what happened in the lead up to the murder and how she died.
Reincarnation is a topic that has been studied in the academic world. Dr. Ian Stevenson (October 31, 1918 – February 8, 2007), a psychiatrist at the University of Virginia, was a pioneer in the field. He spent the last 40 years of his life researching reincarnation claims. He documented 3,000+ cases of people who remembered past lives. He was able to verify the facts and claims in approximately one third of these cases.
