About Dennis Batchelder

I have been writing for ten years, and I've spent over twenty years in the computer security industry. I grew up in New England, spent twenty-five years in Maryland, and now I live with my wife, our three youngest sons, and my mother-in-law in West Seattle, Washington.

My novels revolve around Soul Identity, an organization that helps you leave your money and memories to your own future life.

My first novel Soul Identity is half techno-thriller, half existential journey. It explores what would happen if a God-less, business-based take on reincarnation prevailed--and the consequences this could cause.

Next comes Soul Intent, and it explores why people do bad things for good reasons. It's set both in Germany during the Nuremberg trials and the present day. This is an adventure tale of stealing, hiding, and recovering Nazi Gold.

My third book, Soul Integrity, explores the extremes people will undertake as part of keeping their faith. It's set in Cuba during the 60's, India and China in the 80's, and Seattle in the present day.

I'd love to hear from you... email me at, or visit me on Facebook!

Reviews of Soul Identity by Dennis Batchelder

Lisa White reviewed on Dec. 3, 2013


A ... unique to you, pattern in your eyes that identifies your soul... that will show up again on earth in someone else's eyes after you have died... identifying your soul's reicarnation.

This was a fascinating book, I read it in one day (and now over half finished with the second book).

This is where I stumble in reviews... I want to tell you all about the mystery and the intrigue .. but how to do it without spoilers?

Just know that you won't be disappointed... This book grabbed me from page one and I am still immersed in the story (so much so that I made my boyfriend buy me the second book)... and it kept me reading on the internet, which I normally don't like to do.. (gosh I need a kindle)...

I am really happy to have gotten the chance to read this on smashwords and I am very much enjoying the second book...

I found the story concept very fascinating, but I could see the tech jargon getting in the way of some readers. Overall a great read.

“These guys have been tracking soul identities for almost twenty-six hundred years. They have examples of identities repeating eight, ten, and even twelve times over the centuries. If you like reincarnation, you’ll love Soul Identity.”

What are these identities? They are complicated measurements of various characteristics of both eyes. As far as they can tell, only one person alive in the whole world has that identity. Only after you die, could another person be born with that same identity. The company exists to search for the same eye/soul identity appearing over generations, and to keep money from one person to be passed on to a later person born with the same eye identity. Needless to say, there is lots of room for corruption and power grabs, and lots of good excitement in this book.

The editing is almost flawless in this story. I can’t quite give it 5 stars because it’s a very simply written story lacking in sufficient character building that would help the reader to know the people. There are no changes of scenes and the story is totally linear because it is written in the “I” format: “I sat down at the dining room table this time. I moved the shotgun to the side and opened the folder.” All the I’s get a little annoying, but they are softened when there is dialog between them. The sample at the end of this book of a coming book has the prologue written in the story-telling/third person style and it is very well written and interesting . . . until it gets to the first chapter and switches back to the first person format.

I knew that I would love this book just by the summary. I'm obsessed with original stories and new ideas so this book is an instant favorite for me. The idea that a corporation helps people track their souls from one lifetime to the next so that people can transfer their money or knowledge back to "themselves" is ingenious. I loved the story and everything in it.

The characters were believable and I found myself thinking of them as friends. That's hard for some authors to pull off but Batchelder does it wonderfully. The twists kept coming, which barely allowed me to stop at the end of a chapter. All said, I can't think of one negative thing about this book. It was superb in terms of characterization, how the plot unfolds, the end, the descriptive portions, etc.

I cannot wait to read Soul Intent!
