More About the Author
Michael J. Costa, B.A. Archaeology & Biological Anthropology '99, is a native of California, USA and started writing at age 16 when he wrote his first Science Fiction novel, "Eye of the Pharaoh" ("The Flawed Emerald", Copyright 1990, 1995). Contents and ideas from this book appeared in the film, "The Mummy Returns" - as in the concept for the Ring of EM7 (bracelet of Anubis that shows the location of a tomb), the Undead Army that conquers the Arab Terrorist States (Army of Anubis), the resurrection of Queen Ankhesenamon, and Japanese weapons in an anachronistic fashion (Sai daggers/ Shuriken). Jay Leno of the Tonight Show once made a reference to this story, as did Elizabeth Taylor in her White Diamond Commercials.
Other books (over 77+ using various Nom de Plumes) are based on Egyptology or Egyptian History, Occult, Hobbies, Memoirs, New Religions, Psychic abilities, Art, Magic Spells that work for some reason, and Science Fiction novels. Michael is also a Skyrim Mod Developer, Egyptian Kheri-Heb Priest, and Micronationalist.
Michael is a member of the American Research Center in Egypt. He is a life member of the California State University system, where he founded the John E. Morby Book Award for World History Students in 2011, in memory of his late College History Professor, who authored Dynasties of the World - a Historical Chronology.
