and a 7-minute excerpt about "Loving Abby in Truth and Spirit," on Youtube.

This is the portal for the supporting websites for both works. The section for "Mathew Franklin Whittier in his own words" will present additional evidence that has surfaced since publication, as well as serving as a clearinghouse for that evidence; while the section for "Loving Abby in Truth and Spirit" will function as an educational service for soul-mate couples who have lost one partner in death, and who wish to continue their relationship cross-dimensionally, as depicted in the book.

In year 2000, I was asked in an interview if I knew about any of my past lives. I wrote: "I do think that several of my past lives have been very influential in my work. I have, through intuition, glimpses, and educated guesswork, identified a few lives I feel pretty sure of, and a number of others I have hints of. I've been a writer, connected, I think, with the Romantic poets, for example. Not any of the famous ones as near as I can tell, but I think I knew some of them personally and ascribed to their overall philosophy (for better or worse)."

Five years later, in my "Update" (blog) of June 6, 2005, for the first time I presented a possible past-life match, that of Mathew Franklin Whittier, younger brother of poet and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier. I had not, as you might imagine, been searching for a case which fulfilled my earlier prediction. It was entirely coincidental that Mathew did, in fact, turn out to be peripherally connected with the Romantic writers, just as I had felt. I researched that case for the next several years, but most intensely from 2009 through 2011, when I met, online, someone who coincidentally lived in the area where Mathew was born. Working as a volunteer, this person (who I have promised to keep anonymous) would send me historical images or information, and I would carefully and fearlessly record my gut reactions to it. Those reactions would then be checked for historical plausibility, and everything was carefully dated, so I knew which came first. In this way, a case gradually evolved for my having been Mathew in the 1800's.

Finally, in 2012, "Mathew Franklin Whittier in his own words" was completed (it is "in his own words" because I am his reincarnation). It explores, in a scholarly and yet intensely personal way, the evidence for my being the reincarnation of Mathew, and it also includes, in Part II, 27 of Mathew's own works, writing primarily as the fictional Archie Bunker-type character, "Ethan Spike."

One day, in the course of the research, my researcher found a letter written by Mathew's first wife, Abby Poyen Whittier, and through a medium I was able to make contact with her. Abby and I proceeded to pick up the threads of our relationship, even though she has remained in the astral realm, "in spirit," these last 170 years. I decided to save our modern story for a second book, "Loving Abby in Truth and Spirit."
