M.J. Reveals Her Inspiration…

The Author of the Reincarnationist Series Reveals Her Inspiration
By M.J. Rose (from More Magazine)

“What’s a nice Jewish girl who was a very successful ad exec in New York City doing writing novels about reincarnation? To answer that question I have to go back… not that far… but to when I was three years old and at a Seder.

The family was gathered around and my great great grandfather who was a Kabbalistic scholar was saying a prayer over the wine when I chirped up and told him something about a dinner he’d had at home in Russia when he was a child.

I was three. I didn’t even know what Russia was.

But, my mother later told me, because I don’t remember it, that he never finished the prayer.

I apparently had told him something that he’d never told anyone about, an embarrassing moment in the life of a 9 year-old boy, buried deep inside this 88 year-old man”…

The Reincarnationist Q&A: Author Heather Graham

Thank you to author Heather Graham for answering this week’s Reincarnationist Q&A! Heather is the author of The Bone Island Trilogy: Ghost Shadow, Ghost Night, & Ghost Moon.



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

Complete and pathetic disorganization. I watch others manage time and resources while I run around in circles. Maybe that’s not a hold over. Maybe that’s punishment for something evil I did in a previous life.

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

What heroine?

A strange one, I think, Varina Davis, the one and only first lady of the Confederate States

of America. Not that I would have sided with anyone in a Civil War–and my family wasn’t in this country until the 1940s, if that matters!–but I thought she was a tremendously admirable human being. Like Robert E. Lee, she worked extremely hard after the war to mend the rift in the country. She lost a child in the “White House of the Confederacy” and had to stand strong with her husband while he conducted the war and the country, torn apart by grief. She was down to earth, loved her husband, and once, when running from the approaching Union forces, she refused to lie upon an altar to rest, not wishing any disrepect, and clinging to her beliefs even in the worst of times. I admire her–and I loathe confrontation and love peace, so maybe . . . also, Mary, Queen of Scots. Sadly, she behaved idiotically and tore apart a country and lost her head. All for love, and the advice of the wrong people. I might have fallen into that mold!

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

Three people . . . wow! Only three? I want a banquet. I would invite Washington, Jefferson, and Patrick Henry–I’ve always loved a good speaker, I’m an easy mark for an articulate man! Then, Sir Thomas More, perhaps Leonardo da Vinci, King Charles II (after all, he was tall and charming–and was careful and tolerant about taking revenge on those who had brought about his father’s execution, well, after throwing Cromwell’s bones out of their burial place)–and then a Civil War grouping, including Varina Davis, Jefferson Davis, Abe Lincoln, and Robert E. Lee. If only we could really chat with these people!

What do you think happens when we die?

I don’t know what happens when we die. I grew up in an Irish household, so at first, I believed that the banshees howled and came and were your escorts into the next world. I have lost all of my immediate family–mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, all grandparents–and naturally, in my heart of hearts, believe they will be there to meet me when my time comes. They say that energy doesn’t die. I believe that the soul is a part of that energy, and that our finest human emotion is love, so perhaps that’s part of it, too. I’ve seen things that suggest there is more, though I have not gotten Robert E. Lee or Lincoln to sit down and chat about their lives with me. Perhaps it’s being human–I want to believe their is more.

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

When I come back next time . . . I don’t want to be a what. Definitely want to be human. An organized human! Yes! A Cirque de Soleil performer. I could even be coordinated!
