Thank you Wendy Webb, author of THE TALE OF HALCYON CRANE, for answering this week’s Reincarnationist Q&A –


What is your most marked characteristic that you believe could be a hold over from a past life?

My writing ability.  Writing comes naturally to me, and it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.

What is your principle defect that you believe may be inherited from a previous incarnation?

I have an irrational fear that I’ll fall overboard when I’m on a ship in the middle of the ocean. In an odd coincidence, my mate, photographer Steve Burmeister, is rather obsessed with the Titanic. He knows names, dates, facts, every little thing about the ship and the night it went down. Were we among the people who died in those freezing seas?

Which of your favorite heroes do you think you could have been and why?

I don’t think I was anyone famous, but I do have an affinity for certain time periods and peoples. Early Native American, Victorian England, and post-World War I Paris all seem familiar to me.

What three people from history would you like to have over to dinner for a discussion about reincarnation?

Edgar Cayce, Jesus and my brother Randy, who died in 2004.

What do you think happens when we die?

The spirit leaves the body, (I do believe in ghosts, after all) but beyond that, I really don’t know.

When you come back next time, who (or what!) would you like to be?

I like the ride I’m on right now, so I’d wish for it to continue.
