I'm very excited about my first finished novel!!!! Its been one year now since I first started the ebook process. And NOW, I have a paperback version via CreateSpace. Wow. I just got my first box of my own books. Its a total thrill!
I went to the King Tut exhibit at the MN Science Museum in 2011, and the inspiration sparked. There were so many items on display from the different generations of pharaohs (not solely Tut). It was remarkable to stand in front of carvings thousands of years old.
King Tut is not the main character in my books. But its a fascinating time period. I have another book in the works from his family. I am also working on an early history story surrounding two sisters. More to come.
I would like to eventually make "The Forgotten" a series of strong female characters in Ancient Egypt. I'm developing a story around one of Ankhesenamun's sisters. And more details will come as the stories develop...
Just released December 2016: "The Forgotten" volume 2 "Heir of the Heretic"
