Longtime Baconian enthusiast and Author
Virginia Fellows was born in the tiny prairie town of Jordan Valley, Oregon sixty miles from the closest railroad. Her parents, easterners themselves, had heeded the popular call of their day to "Go west, young man". Later they moved to the more metropolitan area of Boise, Idaho and there Virginia began her education. She attended Scripps College in Claremont, California and graduated from the University of Washington at Seattle. Transported to Michigan at the time of her marriage, she continued her education at the University of Michigan while raising four children. She considers several trips to Europe, India, South America and the Pacific Islands to have been an important part of that education. Intrigued from childhood by the mysterious and the unfamiliar, after her family left home, she discovered the fascination of mystical studies that led her to spend time at the one-of-a-kind Summit University in Pasadena, California (S.U. is now located in Montana). It was there that her fascination with the remarkable world of Francis Bacon began. The Shakespeare Code explains a few of the amazing facts that she discovered after years of research about this great and only partially understood philosopher. Although she has numerous articles and pamphlets published on the subject, this was her first full-length book. She planned a second book that will delve into the further mysteries of occult wisdom in which Bacon was involved after his so-called 'philosophic' death.
