About the author

David Wichman is an author, speaker, sexual healer, and entrepreneur passionate about his message. He is respected and well-known all over the world to those who seek to renew themselves and explore ways to live a fulfilling life free of stigma, shame, and fear around sex, love, and intimacy.

Raised in Fremont, California, David survived a childhood marked by severe neglect and physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. The trauma of his early life led him into years of homelessness, alcoholism, and drug addiction. After decades of struggle and rehabilitation failures, he finally obtained freedom from his addiction in 2005. He remains an active member in New Thought and recovery movements to this day.

In 2006, when David began his journey into sex work, unbeknownst to him he found his calling. While working with sometimes marginalized men, such as seniors, the disabled, and those with severe intimacy issues, he discovered the profound transformational power that sex work creates for both client and provider.

In 2009, David founded travel-companion company The Male Adventure through which he has accompanied clients on life-changing adventures to all seven continents. His trips have featured safaris in the Serengeti, bungee jumping in New Zealand, swimming with humpback whales in Tonga, treks to mountain gorillas in Uganda, and much more. He believes his connection to conservation, wildlife, and different cultures has given him a more intuitive ability to respond to the human condition.

He is an activist, vocal ally, and grateful member of the LGBTQI2 community and stays connected to current or emerging issues that dominate marginalized communities. He is a passionate fundraiser for HIV- and AIDS-related causes and other nonprofits supporting other-abled persons and benefiting animal rescues.

In 2011, he created and began facilitating a workshop called “Sex, Love, and Intimacy: Writing Your Way to New Relationships” for recovery conferences and retreats. Groups have used his highly sought-after writing workshop in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Sydney, Australia, with great success.

In 2016, David and his partners, Carl and Todd, founded Heal-VR, a software development company that merges ancient spiritual principles and meditation techniques with modern virtual reality technology. Heal-VR creates content that offers users a deeper and more profound meditative experience.

Undergirding all of David’s personal and professional efforts has been a deep and abiding mystical spirituality. He is currently a student of the Course in Miracles and utilizes New Thought practices, such as life visioning, creative visualization, and meditation. While he has studied the works of many modern healers, his deeper healing in recovery has been under the guidance of his spiritual mentor, T. J. Woodward. David’s spiritual practices have brought him an overwhelming sense of gratitude and an unending wealth of forgiveness and joy on his journey to true wholeness. 

David's coauthor is Heather Ebert, a professional writer based in Nashville, Tennessee. She has more than fifteen years’ experience in print and digital publishing and has written for a variety of publications. Heather specializes in memoir, fiction, and narrative nonfiction, helping nonwriters tell their stories with power and beauty. She has written eight other books to date. One of her recently published books is Sole Survivor: The inspiring true story of coming face to face with the infamous Railroad Killer by Holly K. Dunn with Heather Ebert (Diversion Books, November 7, 2017). Learn more at heatherebert.com.

Update #1 - AMAZING!!! 334 sold !! we are getting there!! Feb. 20, 2019

What can I say except thank you very much WOW!! Such a great roll out. Just a few housekeeping items I want to say. 

Tomorrow at 1pm PST will be the Facebook live drawing for a $100 Visa gift card

Tune in here https://www.facebook.com/thema....

We must keep going sharing and finding ways to get the word out. It looks like we are close HOWEVER!! The sweet spot for pre-sale to get a major big 5 book deal is 800 -1000 pre-orders. I believe we can do this. We are well on our way. Be sure to tune it as I give a lot of details during my Facebook live tomorrow or replay the video if you can be on live. I will be talking about what happens when I get signed to a deal how that plays out and what is next. 

If I know any marketing gurus out there now is the time to come calling ! Seriously ! 

Ok all much Love 

David 


PS I know most of you got an email yesterday from me directly I am not sure how this platform sends them out so I will be sending a just a few more over the next 3 weeks. As I promised I would not bug you. Please let me know if you are getting a bunch of emails from this campaign I will take you off the list. I am grateful I don't want to be a bother.
