Author’s Bio

Author Bio

Wayne Hatford, Indiana born and current San Francisco resident, is a teacher and intuitive dedicated to the expansion of consciousness. To that end, he has written five books, four of which are channeled: “Rudolph Valentino The Untold Story,” “Going for Excelsior: Thriving in Seniorhood,” “Valentino Speaks: The Wisdom of Rudolph Valentino,” and “Letters from Janice: Correspondence with the Astral Plane.” His newest book, “Beauty Wanted,” explores beauty and its relationship with Italy and Italians and, though this time not the star, Rudy makes a number of guest appearances to share his expertise in support of and to enhance its hypotheses.

A life-long student of metaphysics and transformation, Wayne speaks English, French, Spanish and Italian, the same languages in which Rudolph Valentino himself was conversant. Formerly a public school teacher, he is also an expert in Victorian decorative arts and has had extensive experience in the antique auction industry as a personal property appraiser.
