In many respects Galen Stoller spent his childhood being an all American kid. He liked going to theme parks, going to movies, visiting his grandparents, hamming it up at school and hanging with his friends. He was steeped in the world of Sci-Fi/fantasy and read the complete Harry Potter series, the Golden Compass/Dark Material series, the Bartimaus Triology and read the C.S. Lewis Narnia series over and over, except for the last book where all the protagonists were killed in a train accident. That last book he only read once and never wanted to read it again.

 

It was a train accident that would take Galen’s earth life when he was sixteen years old. His goal was to be an actor and his talent and imagination brought him to the place where was performing in both children’s theater productions and community theater productions. He was about to perform the dual roles of Fagan and Bill Sikes just before he passed.

 

Galen was in 11th grade at Desert Academy in Santa Fe, New Mexico and was starting to think about what college he wanted to attend. He was an ethical vegetarian and helped train dogs for Assistance Dogs of the West.  For this service he was nominated for the Amy Biel Youth Spirit Award in 2008, but despite being the only youth spirit nominated (as he put it) he could not win being unable to submit an essay.

 

It was with his theatrical flare that he first made contact with his father within days of his passing. Knowing he could reach him in dreamtime, he put together a montage of his father’s memories with a musical accompaniment of Robert Goulet singing “I ever I should leave you” from Camelot. Over the ensuing years, Galen began to describe where he was and what he was experiencing. After the second anniversary of his passing he asked his father to start writing the first book in what he is calling the 'Death Walker' series.

MY LIFE AFTER DEATH: A Posthumous Memoir

My Life After Life: A Posthumous Memoir 

 

An unorthodox personal tale of tragedy and transcendence, My Life After Life confronts timeless questions concerning what happens to our loved ones and ourselves after death. The journey began for Dr. K. Paul Stoller one evening in 2007 when he received a phone call from the state police that his 16-year-old son Galen had been killed. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Stoller's son appeared and eventually began to communicate with him in dream states. Keenly aware of their emotional bond during his son's life, Dr. Stoller soon realized just how powerfully that bond could express itself. Dr. Stoller experienced difficulty in accepting what was happening to him-both the stress of the loss and the stress of the contact. Eventually convinced that it was his son, Dr. Stoller began journaling hundreds of pages of communication from Galen about his new circumstances, which led eventually to this book. Stoller's only comments appear in his Editor's Notes at the end of each chapter.

............I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this book. Galen's father is my son's doctor, so I wanted to read this to learn about Galen. I was blown away! It is a beautiful and amazing look at life after life. And I got a look at what an inspiring soul Galen Stoller is, and feel like a better person for learning about him. One book has changed the way I look at life. ONE book! (and I read a LOT of books) I have much less fear about death, and even about life, then I did before I picked up this book. How often can a person say that? I bought this on my Kindle, but will be ordering one in regular book form for my dad as well. A beautiful and amazing read.
