From the Author
What makes this series stand out is its setting in Cairo, Egypt, against the backdrop of the Arab Spring. Expatriates living and working in the country must practice extra vigilance in their daily lives, and diplomats are no exception. Even more interesting are the historical elements of the book taking readers back to the late 1800's when England, Italy, and France were in a race to amass the most Egyptian artifacts for their respective museum collections. The story also takes the reader back to the British occupation and the construction and significance of the Suez Canal.
Finally, Wells is a 16-year-old who, like many boys that age, is coming of age. During the course of "The Desert Sands," readers see his struggle with voicing his thoughts and ideas. This theme is carried throughout the series as Wells eventually gains his confidence and learns to trust not only his words but also his instincts.
Elements of conflict include culture, covert government activities, and relationships between family and friends. Subsequent books in the series delve into metaphysics, quantum theory, and issues of government integrity.
