Product description

About the Author

Bill Hiatt has been teaching English at Beverly Hills High School since 1981. Although teaching has been and remains his first love, he has also been drawn to creative writing of various sorts. From high school on, he wrote short stories, a little poetry, and an earlier novel, finished in 1982. Living with Your Past Selves, is his first published work. Bill’s ancestors came from a wide variety of European backgrounds, with Celtic groups (Irish, Scottish, Breton, and, as you might guess from this novel, Welsh) being the most well represented. His ancestors settled in America long ago, though, some of them as early as the colonial period. He is a third generation Californian who grew up and still currently lives in Culver City, California.

This book was recently entered in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards. This is what our readers thought:

The readers very much enjoyed the mthological background to much of the story and how well developed the characters were. They felt the book was very well paced and had a nice balance between character development/setting description and action. They thought the relationship between Stan and Taliesin was well thought out and interesting.
All the readers enjoyed the author's style. They felt he worked well with ‘speech’ (although the teenagers who read the book felt that the characters spoke a little too formally) and the author's simile work was superb, for example, p1 pressure on him as if they believed he was coal…
There was also an enjoyable element of humour running throughout the book, for example, p159: but at least he wasn’t insisting on sitting on his lap.
The readers felt the editor did an excellent job with pacing although the editor might have suggested to the author that he make the speech less formal between the teenagers.
The readers did note that there were a large number of sexual references in the book which was not noted in the blurb. However, the sexual development/thoughts of the teenage characters was well done and often very insightful.

‘A page-turning mixture of magic and teenage sexual insecurity. Highly recommended.’ The Wishing Shelf Awards

This book is a real gem, a page turner of the highest degree. The writing is crisp, well crafted and the story line is compelling. I also liked the tone of the authors voice, a book with personality. In short this book hits all the marks and is a great read. I can't wait for more from this author.

A really interesting concept that I hadn't come across before. The book is almost a mixture of Time Travel and Sci-fi on a teen basis.

That someone's past lives could come back to them as vivid memories that engage their everyday life was a new one on me and I was completely swept up in all the action.

I loved the depth and colourfulness of the main characters (Tal, Stan and Carrie) and how they really came to life as the story progressed. Each have their own quirks and differences that make this book quite special.

I liked the 'teen' type language and scenarios. They felt very real and didn't stop me enjoying the book as an adult.

An excellent read all round and well worth taking a look at.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this story. I want more like it. 22 July 2017
By Mary Enck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the most creative and innovative novels I have read using the Arthurian Legends as intricate threads on the author's loom. I was fascinated with the characters and whom they represent. There are surprises and delights as you delve deeper into the enchanted forest of the story. It was exciting, moved at a fast pace and kept my interest going long into the night. I am so pleased to find a novel like this that entertained me and surprised me at every turn. Thank you, Mr. Hiatt, for the fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Put on must read list 13 May 2017
By LISA - Published on Amazon.com

The storyline was downright freaky. Most would go insane being able to remember their past lives and keep it a secret. I selected this book because it's different than my normal reads. It did not disappoint. Well written. The story pulled me in and before I knew it, I couldn't put it down.
5.0 out of 5 stars If you like stories of magic and spells mixed with science, then you will love this book 28 Feb. 2015

“Living with Your Past Selves (Spell Weaver Book 1)” by Bill Hiatt is a riveting novel that will keep you turning the pages. Join Taliesin “Tal” Weaver, the 16-year-old protagonist on a journey to discover his past. This coming of age story is set in a wealthy California coastal high school amid sexual awakening.

Stan, Tal’s teenage computer whiz buddy, who is also a math and science genius, realizes that he has been speaking a Middle Ages language in his sleep. He also seems to pickup complex skills at a masterful level far too quickly. Reincarnation is suspected and their adventure begins in the present from a small town just outside of Santa Barbara, Ca.

If you like stories of magic and spells mixed with science, then you will love this book. Shape shifting, travel across time and to other dimensions plus a nod to Arthurian legend are just some of the rich areas woven into this tale. Supernatural themes have been a big part of both novels and television for the past decade. This book has a fun twist on a familiar theme.

The story is easy to follow and it will draw you in. The chapters are fast paced and will make it hard for you to put down.

Young adults and parents alike will enjoy this book. Think Hogwarts set in a modern day West coast beach town. Tal thinks he is just an average teenager growing up in a small, but wealthy enclave. He is quickly thrust into the spotlight once he realizes and starts to own his newfound powers. If you have already read the Harry Potter series and other popular young adult supernatural novels left you wanting more, this one will deliver.

Aficionados of both Welsh and Celtic lore will appreciate the level of detail in this book. Even if you are new to the topics there is much to learn and you will come away with a deeper understanding and interest.

Fantasy and Sci-fi fans will not be disappointed. This story of two remarkable teens and a rich array of other characters in a small California coastal town is a fun read.

This well written 250-page novel is compelling. The dialog between the main characters is natural and believable. I cannot wait to read Spell Weaver Book 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living with Your Past Selves, you're going to love it 13 Dec. 2013
By Robin Perron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you like James Patterson’s Witch & Wizard series you will love Living With Your Past Selves. Living with Your Past Selves (Spell Weaver) by Bill Hiatt is an outstanding book that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The story focuses on Taliesin Weaver and the struggles that he faces due to his past lives. It’s a fast paced easy read that will keep you engaged.
Despite Tal’s best efforts he is unable to keep his past lives a secret and as a result all hell breaks loose. This unique teenager and his team of unlikely friends, keep you interested even after you’ve finished the book.
The story has a unique combination of Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Arthurian legend and is a great read for teenagers and adults alike. What are you waiting for? Jump into Tal’s world, you won’t regret it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Unique. Captivating. Extremely Fun to Read. Prepare to be pulled into the story, and not able to put the book down. 11 Dec. 2016

Bill Hiat has done it! This book, actually the entire series, is unique, captivating, and extremely fun to read. Pulling in bits and pieces of legend, lore, and myth from numerous cultures and melding them together into a cohesive story, I found myself immersed into the story telling and connected to the characters.

This first installment sets not only the pace of the story, but connects you to the characters to the point where you start rooting for your favorite.

I admit, I added this book to my list a while ago and having read everything else I finally bought it; I wish I had bought and read it sooner!!!

Great job Bill!!
