Synopsis

Welcome to Soulless.
We are the generation that laughs at death.

Reincarnation; what was once considered a gift of immortality has become an eternity of nightmares.

Nadia Richards lives in a world plagued by reincarnation, a system of recycling souls where all past memories, personalities and traumatic events are relived daily in disjointed sequences. Trapped within their own warped realities, not even the richest and most powerful are saved from their own minds unraveling. Madness is the new human nature, and civilizations are crumpling beneath themselves trying to outrun it.

Within a society that ignores death, Nadia appears to be the one exception to the reincarnation trap. Born without any reincarnated memories and with printless eyes, the hot tempered 19 year old quickly becomes the ultimate prize to all those wishing to end the vicious cycle, or for some, to ensure they could evade death forever.

Teaser: Excerpt

Book One:


Immortality. What was once a magnificent dream has now become our grim reality. Man no longer fears death; he yearns for it.

In 2016, children began to have dreams of the people they once were. They could remember it all— past friends, family events— with eerily accurate detail. By 2200, entire generations experienced the same, marking that year as the Return, and it was then we realised that reincarnation was more than a belief. Our souls could never leave this earth, and with every return, our minds began to crowd with memories that no longer belonged to us.

With every century that passed, the insanity deepened and drove humanity to the verge of extinction. Countless wars devastated society, leaving the planet and civilization in ruins. The advancement humanity once made came to a halt as the will to better the world became the will just to survive it. A decade after the world wars, a powerful group calling themselves the Elite stepped in to rebuild our depleting race.

During this time, researchers discovered that every soul left a unique mark on the iris, which was carried through to the soul’s next body. To bring back order, a new technology capable of tracking the soul imprint was created, allowing our government to tag, track and control us. For the Elite, the system was perfect. Regardless of where they were reborn, they were returned to their former glory and entitlements. For those who broke the law, death was no longer an escape and they were branded as blacklisted and sentenced to decades of imprisonment.

To slow the insanity, scientists created a serum called the D400 that repressed the memories and personalities of all previous lives. Most of the population survived off small doses, just enough to suppress violent and paranoid behaviours. Those of the lower classes were left to crumble beneath the weight of the disease, becoming crazed husks of humanity called drifters. The Elite thought they had cracked the code to our reincarnation problem and a new norm emerged. That is, of course, until I was born.

You see, I was born without a soul imprint. A defect that has restarted centuries-old wars, but this time nothing can stop the madness from destroying us all.

    1. Hey Becky!

      Thanks for the awesome question, a lot of my ideas stems from what's happening around me. Ive always had a fascination with the afterlife and with the human soul, so it was just a matter of asking the WHAT IF question. In this instance, what if reincarnation was so powerful, it affected everybody?
      I love trying to write out philosophical questions and exploring all the different possibilities behind them.

      In some cases, like Soulless, the outcome is far darker and intense than I could've predicated.

    1. Hey again Becky,

      The hardest part to me is the blank page. Sure, there are plenty of difficult things when it comes to writing. Writers block is a famous one, but I found as long as you have something down on the page, at least it's something you can make better.
