Author Biography

Barry Homan was born and raised in Fitchburg, Massachusetts and graduated from Bentley College (now Bentley University) in 1971.

A student of the metaphysical from an early age, Barry has studied astrology, tarot cards and numerous other New Age subjects. He also read countless books concerning the metaphysical realm, and was particularly impressed by the works of Raymond Moody and Brian Weiss. In 1997, after the passing of his father, he began attending the local spiritual church, where he met mediums, shamans and channelers who helped him along the way.

Adhering to the admonition "write what you know", he decided to write a metaphysical novel incorporating much of what he had learned over the years. A believer in reincarnation since he was a young child, Barry decided that would be the theme of his first book.


Barry and his wife now live in Florida, where he is working on a sequel.

Whispers Through Time by Barry Homan is an uplifting story about spirituality. This is the story of Jill Palmer, a mother of two teenage boys, divorced and working as medical transcriber and hostess. She lived an ordinary life, and the last thing she was looking for was unsolicited thrills. One day, her best friend Lauren Masters, trying to help her friend make her life more exciting, convinced Jill to go on a past-life regression session. Jill never believed in reincarnation or in the possibility that someone could live multiple lives. Through hypnosis, Dr. Simon Taylor, psychologist and Lauren’s friend, took Jill on a journey throughout different lifetimes. Skeptical in the beginning, Jill slowly let her guard down. She started doing research and meeting people who would change her life forever. Through each session, she immersed herself in a different lifetime; she learned many lessons about her inner self, her loved ones, and also came to find a bigger purpose on her current lifetime.

Whispers Through Time is a delectable story. As an spiritualist myself, I have read many books in this genre in languages other than English, and this was one of the greatest I have read in English literature. It is a light read, especially for those who have just started studying the topic. Nonetheless, Mr. Homan touched on subjects such as reincarnation and karma with such refinement that makes anyone interested in the subject want to search for more. The subject of hypnosis was another one that particularly interested me. The way that the psychologist conducted the regressions on Jill fascinated me and was more proof of how well the subject was researched. I also loved the characters. They were well developed and their stories were pretty interesting. I also appreciated the subtle history lessons the book included. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the metaphysical, spiritual world. Especially for those who are just beginning, this book is a great start. I look forward to reading more of Mr. Homan’s literature in the future.
