It was, however, the meeting with Danielle that really pushed him towards the second phase of his professional blossoming.
Thanks to her, the love scenes in his novels acquired a peculiar grace and the characters suddenly became more refined and credible. The complicity of the couple is also manifested in the dedications: every book Wilbur writes is dedicated to his wife.
It is also said that he decided to begin a new book on every wedding anniversary. Over the course of his career, the writer has sold over 80 million copies, and his novels have been translated into countless languages.
The ingredients of its success are: precious materials, indigenous elements, wild animals, sweet and beautiful girls, young men, strong and determined, courageous women, death, blood, love, anger and betrayal — a mix of strong emotions.
The places he describes are evocative, strong and wild, and the situations are often unexpected and shocking. As a child, Wilbur Smith loved reading C.
Forester, John Buchan and H. Rider Haggard. He also wildly admired Lawrence Durrell, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck and Robert Graves, and, in some way, the influence of these great artists is extremely clear in his books.
He is truly a unique writer. Wilbur Smith currently lives in England, despite having always stated that he fells African and that Africa has always been his main inspiration.
To be completely fair, he has never failed to express his concern about the struggles the nature and the people of his native-continent face everyday.
Africa is always in his heart. When-The-Lion-Feeds is the first adventure book published by Wilbur Smith. It tells the story of two brothers, Sean and Garrick Courtney, who meet a large antelope on their way back home.
From that moment Sean becomes the protector of his brother. Molti dei suoi romanzi sono ambientati nel XVI e nel XVII secolo e raccontano gli insediamenti nelle zone meridionali dell' Africa , contribuendo a spiegare l'ascesa e l'influenza storica dei coloni inglesi e olandesi in quei territori.
Tra i suoi maggiori successi: Il destino del leone , La spiaggia infuocata , Il dio del fiume , Il settimo papiro , Come il mare.
Nato a Broken Hill il 9 gennaio nell'allora Rhodesia del Nord da Herbert James Smith e da Elfreda Lawrence, ha studiato alla Natal and Rhodes University , conseguendo la laurea in scienze commerciali nel Successivamente ha lavorato dal al alla H.
However, they grow up as hero and legend respectively. One of the Wilbur Smith novels adapted into a film is the Diamond Hunters.
For some years, Smith tried to get the novel adapted into a movie without success until it was later adapted into a film, The Kingfisher Caper in and into a TV mini-series The Diamond Hunters in The Seventh Scroll was adapted into a TV miniseries in which was produced by Lux International Film Company.
Mountain Of Diamonds was adapted into the big screen in Other novels by the same author which were incorporated into the film industry are; Shout at the Devil , The Kingfisher Caper , The Last Lion , Gold , Wild Justice and The Mercenaries When the Lion Feeds : This novel is part of the Courtney series.
When a lion feeds, something always dies. Sean is the lion, a hero of this thrilling adventure and drama of the great men who took control over South Africa during the last quarter of the 19th century.
The first section of the novel deals with Sean early life and his dreams of becoming a prominent farmer and great fighter just like his father.
It was a complex book, it gave me a great deal of pleasure but that was the inspiration—to break free. Eagle in the Sky was more typical fare, as was The Eye of the Tiger Film rights for both were bought by Michael Klinger who was unable to turn them into movies; however, Klinger did produce films of Gold and Shout at the Devil Cry Wolf was a return to historical novels, set during the Italian invasion of Ethiopia in He then returned to the Courtney family of his first novel with A Sparrow Falls , set during and after World War I.
Hungry as the Sea and Wild Justice were contemporary stories—the latter was his first best seller in the USA. He embarked on a new series of historical novels, centering around the fictitious Ballantyne family, who helped colonise Rhodesia: A Falcon Flies , Men of Men , The Angels Weep and The Leopard Hunts in Darkness The Burning Shore saw him return to the Courtney family, from World War I onwards.
He called this a "breakthrough" book for him "because the female lead kicked the arse of all the males in the book. Elephant Song was a more contemporary tale, but then he kicked off a new cycle of novels set in Ancient Egypt: River God and The Seventh Scroll He returned to the Courtneys for Birds of Prey and Monsoon , then published another Ancient Egyptian story, Warlock Blue Horizon was a historical Courtney tale and The Triumph of the Sun had the Courtneys meet the Ballantynes.
The Quest was in Ancient Egypt then Assegai had the Courtneys. Those in Peril was contemporary, as was Vicious Circle Desert God brought Smith back to Ancient Egypt.
In December , it was announced that Smith was leaving his English-language publisher of 45 years, Pan Macmillan , to move to HarperCollins. As part of his new deal, Smith will be writing select novels with co-writers, in addition to writing books on his own.
In a press release Smith was quoted as saying: "For the past few years my fans have made it very clear that they would like to read my novels and revisit my family of characters faster than I can write them.
For them, I am willing to make a change to my working methods so the stories in my head can reach the page more frequently. The first of the co-written novels was Golden Lion , a Courtney novel.
Predator was contemporary. Pharaoh brought him back to Ancient Egypt. In , the World Forum on the Future of Sport Shooting Activities granted Smith the Inaugural Sport Shooting Ambassador Award.
Smith was working for his father when he married his first wife, Anne, a secretary, in a Presbyterian Church on 5 July in Salisbury, Rhodesia.
The marriage ended in He married his second wife, Jewel, following the publication of his first novel When the Lion Feeds , with whom he had another child, a son, Lawrence.
By the time we divorced, I felt as if I'd been in two car smashes. They married in I was making a lot of money and she spent it by the wheelbarrow load She destroyed my relationship with them because she had a son from a previous marriage and wanted him to be the dauphin.
Smith dedicated his books to her until she died from brain cancer in , following a six-year illness. The first part of our marriage was great.
The last part was hell. Suddenly I was living with a different person. They chopped out half Danielle's brain and her personality changed.
She became very difficult. I found it very, very hard to spend a lot of time with her because her moods would flick back and forth.
She'd say, 'Why am I dying and you are well? It's unfair. He met his fourth wife, a Tadjik woman named Mokhiniso Rakhimova, in a WHSmith bookstore in London.
The two fell in love and married in May She was a law student studying at Moscow University and younger than he by 39 years.
Ensimmäisen kiväärinsä Smith sai vuotiaana ammuttuaan karjaa tappaneen leijonan. Kiinnostuksen kirjoja kohtaan Smith omaksui äidiltään jo nuorena; hänen isänsä puolestaan ei arvostanut kirjallisuutta vaan piti sitä turhuutena.
Smith opiskeli Natal Universityssä ja Rhodes Universityssä. Hän valmistui vuonna Bachelor of Commerceksi. Smith taipui isänsä toiveisiin, ja hänestä tuli kirjanpitäjä.
Vuosina — työnantaja oli eteläafrikkalainen Goodyear Tyre and Rubber Co. Sieltä Smith siirtyi vuosiksi — Rhodesiaan H.
Smith and Sonille, jossa hänen isänsäkin työskenteli. Smith meni naimisiin vuonna Jewell Sabbertin kanssa, mutta avioliitto ei ollut onnellinen.
Sen aiheuttama masennus sai Smithin pakenemaan todellisuutta kirjoittamiseen. Hänen ensimmäinen teoksensa The Gods First Make Mad jäi julkaisematta.
Seuraava käsikirjoitus sen sijaan hyväksyttiin ja Smithistä tuli täysipäiväinen kirjailija vuonna Smithin toinen avioliitto Annen kanssa ei onnistunut yhtään paremmin kuin ensimmäinenkään.
Siksi Smith on ollut haluton kertomaan siitä juuri mitään. Toisen avioliiton aikana syntyivät tytär Christian ja poika Shaun Avioliitto päättyi eroon vuonna , ja lasten ja isän välit jäivät etäisiksi.
Avioeronsa jälkeen Smith meni kolmannen kerran naimisiin. Morsian oli Danielle Antoinette Thomas , jonka lempinimi oli Dee-Dee.
