D. Eric Maikranz


You ever have one of those moments where you are visiting a new place, but then all of a sudden you feel like you’ve been there before. That somehow you know the place you are in, yet you have never set foot there until that moment. But what if you had? Or how about those times when you meet a new person yet you both feel like you have known each other for years? Enter the concept of past lives or reincarnation. That once we finish with one life, we don’t simply move on to the hereafter after one round, but rather come back several times over until we are truly ready to move on to the other side. This week on The Malliard Report, Jim’s guest just so happens to be an expert in this field. Dedicating his work into the study of past lives; author, producer, and researcher D. Eric Maikranz joins us to discuss his work and more.

“D. Eric Maikranz is an American novelist whose debut novel, The Reincarnationist Papers, was adapted into a Paramount Pictures film, Infinite, starring Mark Wahlberg and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and directed by Antoine Fuqua. He is also a software executive and former software programmer. Maikranz began writing fiction and articles in the late 1990s and continued writing in the early 2000s with two Italian travel guides for publisher Marshall Cavendish. He self-published his debut novel, The Reincarnationist Papers, in 2009 where he notably crowdsourced his readers to act as agents by offering a reward on the front page of his book (10% of any advance) to any reader who could introduce the novel to a Hollywood producer who would adapt the book into a movie, which led to the novel being adapted by Paramount.”

Eric certainly provides some fantastic insight to a very interesting topic that we all have found ourselves wondering about whenever we run into those déjà vu situations.
