Bill Wilke

Biography

Bill Wilke grew up in New Orleans, attended Louisiana State University, and is now retired in the Lake Tahoe, Nevada area. Between college and retirement, he spent nineteen years in the Middle East, eleven in Egypt, under the rule of President Mubarack, and four years in Libya, under the rule of Colonel Khadafy. This has enabled him to get to know this region's people, their mind-sets, customs, culture, and has afforded an exposure to ruthless dictatorships. This experience has provided the inspiration and the foundation for two novels that are anchored in the Middle Eastern culture, an action-packed, thought-provoking adventure novel entitled "Doublestar Implosion", and a delightful, educational children's novel, "Maadi's Adventures in Egypt".
