William R. Hicks

Publisher info

William Raymond Hicks is a native of Southern California who met his wife, Elise (also a Southern California native), in 1996 through a transformational workshop environment called Lifespring (now M.I.T.T.). During much personal growth together, William was inspired to begin painting, as well as to co-write Wings: The Journey Home, with Elise in 1997. “Wings” is their first joint book, Our Experiences As Ghosts Aboard Titanic is their second, and ‘The Workbook’ for “Wings” is their third. They have also published 50 Poems & Musings for Ropepullers, which they co-wrote with their brother, Joseph Hicks.

William has been painting, journaling, writing poetry, and creating his own works of both fiction and non-fiction. He has written a series of non-fiction books called What Most People Don’t Know…, which touches on alternative views of topics such as The Bible, cancer, money, and life purpose. William has also written a series of fiction books called Adventures with Joe, in which he and his brother, Joe, time-travel together to both the past and the future, come face to face with the paranormal, enter a wormhole to another dimension, and come face to face with alien visitors.

William is working on several other books with both Elise and Joseph, as well as more of his own works. William and Elise are students of history, psychology, self-empowerment, metaphysics, and quantum physics, and their intention is to teach what they have learned in a unique, fun, and inspiring way.
