NEW MEMBER FROM DOWNUNDER!!

Postby Allira » Tue Apr 03, 2007 4:00 am

Hi all,

Just found this forum after buying a copy of "The Quest" Where I found a link to Wilbur's website on the inside cover and a link to this site from that!.. Finaly some like minded readers to converse with!! :D

I am 36 years young, Married with one child and work for the Public Service in Australia.

I am an avid reader and Wilbur is of course my all time fave Author having been introduced to his book The Seventh Scroll, by my Departed Grandfather when he was dying of Cancer 10 years ago.

I would raid the bottom of his wardrobe for books, and he suggested it to me as a good read. Two weeks later as my grandfather was close to death my final coversation with him was about the book and how much I enjoyed it.

Upon his death my Grandma and I were cleaning out his things and came across a brown paper bag with a note on the front and a book inside, To Deb, a passion shared for always, and a hard cover copy of the book. I also was given all of my Grandfathers books. Which contained everything Wilbur had written to date.

So there started my passion for his Novels!

Hope to get to know some of you better in the future!!

Greetings to you A :)
While a tiger eyed its prey and an eagle raged in a thunderous sky a river of darkness fell upon a burning sun and the wolf cried tis a time to die, thus did the angels weep as power and triumph in those golden eyes did creep.
