MBA, novelist, poet. I have a new novel "The Gospel According to Lilith" as well as new book "Einstein, Religion, Politics and Literature." There are other pieces on Obama, History, and Economics. The piece on Obama was done real time during his quest for the Presidency. It goes on to recommend changes for America, ones I believe essential for our survival as a nation. website: www.lonniehicks.com
I came to the written word from an early age. My passion is to take the ideas, emotions and perspectives of those I encounter and put them to prose, poetry, novels and shortstories. Therefore, many of my writings are inspired by the real experiences of real individuals who write to me.
In "Politics, Poetry and Love in the Age of Obama" I interviewed hundreds of individuals via the internet during the campaign leading up to the election of Obama and took their feelings, reactions and life concerns and placed them inside poetry, essays and prose.
I am also a fan of Faulkner and Shakespeare.
I have spent many years teaching as a grad student at Berkeley and other local colleges including Institutional studies classes, usually including teaching the history of institutions in the United States--political, social, economic, and religious. Later I moved into the non-profit area as CFO and Executive Director of several of the largest non-profits in the bay area including the Pacifica Radio Network, the largest independent radio network in the United States.
Also, I completed a second master's degree in politics, in addition to the MBA from UC Berkeley. See my website: www.lonniehicks.com

Accomplishments: Humm, I finished my novel "The Gospel According to Lilith" It was very exciting. I have a related blog at my website which makes the argument that the bible as a literary and political work spawned ideas which can be seen at work in the American Constitution and in American history and political life. In fact, I conclude that the intent of the early Israelites was clear: create a nation based on radical,egalitarian ideas. It created the world's first outline from God, in their view, for how a country ought to be organized. As a political statement the bible is seminal document and gave the world new ideas around democracy and justice. See the NOVA November 2008 special on this issue. There is ample archeological evidence to support this view which is now being gradually accepted into the main stream. The bible must be seen in an entirely new light with this new data. See my audio book on this topic at my website (www.lonniehicks.com)
