Editorial Reviews

From the Author

One of the earliestcivilizations in the world arose in Egypt over 5000 years ago. The pharaohsruled Egypt for 2500 years--but not without challenges.
 
Ramses the Third ruledduring the New Kingdom, the golden age of Egypt. At that time, the greatpyramids were already a thousand years old. Egypt remained the first andgreatest superpower of the world, a land of plenty with rich fields fed by theannual Nile floods.
 
Foreigners flocked toEgypt as immigrants and traders, seeking a better life. But when Egypt closedits borders to foreigners facing famine at home, resentment sometimes turned toviolence. In his 30 years as Pharaoh, from about 1184 to 1153 BC, Ramses had todefend the borders at least three times from foreign invaders. These includedthe Libu, a tribe from the area that is now Libya. His military also traveledto distant lands to meet foreign enemies.
 
At home, Ramses facedthreats from the priesthood, a workers' strike at the royal necropolis, and evena palace murder plot.
 
 The story of Seshta, Horus, and Reya is setduring this time. Other than Ramses the Third, all characters and events arefictional, yet their lifestyles and attitudes are based on what we know ofancient Egypt.

The Eyes and Ears ofPharaoh was a real position at the head of Egypt's secret police. Young dancersperformed at parties or worked in the temples. An ambitious young man might jointhe military, hoping for advancement. A poor boy might feel lucky to work as anapprentice toymaker.
 
Religion was part ofeveryday life, but individual devotion varied, and most people had a favoritegod or goddess from among the large pantheon that watched over Egypt. (Seshtatakes her name from the goddess of learning.) People believed the ba, part of the soul, traveled at nightin dreams.
 
I have tried to reachacross the millennia and capture life in ancient Egypt. Most of all, thesecharacters were created with the belief that in every culture, throughouthistory, people are motivated by the same emotions; that no matter our age orbackground we can do great things if we work together; and that nothing is moreprecious than a good friend.

From the Back Cover

Praise for The Eyes of Pharaoh

Likable characters and some surprising plot twists keep you wanting to know what will happen next. 

...fast paced mystery that has so much history and culture hidden in plain sight.... You won't be able to put the book down until you learn what happens to the three friends. 

...exciting action with interesting characters, a brisk plot line and historically-accurate details of the book's setting. 

... An intriguing mystery embedded within a book full of beautiful writing.... Evocative descriptions which make you feel like you're right there, running through the markets with Seshta or sitting by the river watching the fishermen. 

...fast paced plot, interesting and "real" characters, and excellent writing. 

The best Ancient Egyptian story I have come across for a while, even if it is a children's book.
