Billy Roberts is a UK-based stage and television medium and teacher and has been mediumistically inclined since he was a child. He lives with his wife, Dolly and two pussycats—Elly and Poppy—in Cornwall, South West England. Both he and his wife are members of the Rosicrucian Order.
He is the author of 31 books all in the genres of Self-Help and Mind, Body, and Spirit; and he has presented a series of videos titled Billy Roberts Investigates the Paranormal. He has appeared on television worldwide and presented his own 36-week series Secrets of the Paranormal on Sky’s Channel.
In 2003, he was commissioned by Sony to feature in a documentary to promote their Playstation 2 Game, Ghost Hunter, filmed on location in New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexico. He also spent 12 months on the popular television programme Most Haunted.
When Billy left school in 1962 at the age of 16, he was already living the dream of every other kid his age, playing lead guitar in a rock band and touring Europe with some of the greats of the 1960s: The Yardbirds, the Moody Blues, Chuck Berry and even Jimi Hendrix. He lived in Paris and was managed by Jean Vanlou of Unidans, the largest agency on the Continent at that time. Sadly, the excesses of living life in the fast lane caught up with him, and in 1970 he returned to the UK to be treated for his misuse of narcotic substances.
It was at the lowest point in his life that the ‘Spirit World’ came back into his life with a vengeance, making it clear to him that he had a vocation as a medium. The rest is history, as they say, and today Billy Roberts is one of the UK’s leading mediums.
His autobiography, Living Beneath the Wings of Angels, was first published by Harper Collins in 1995, and the updated version As I Recall It – Living Beneath the Wings of Angels was re-published in 2006. His last two books, Self-Healing with the Nadi Technique – The Holistic Way and Ghostly Tales were published by Llewellyn Worldwide in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
In September 2015, Billy will be conducting workshops and demonstrations of mediumship in New Orleans and Dallas as well as in surrounding areas.
