Editorial Reviews

From the Author

One of the earliest civilizations in the world arose in Egypt over 5000 years ago. The pharaohs ruled Egypt for 2500 years--but not without challenges.
 
Ramses the Third ruled during the New Kingdom, the golden age of Egypt. At that time, the great pyramids were already a thousand years old. Egypt remained the first and greatest superpower of the world, a land of plenty with rich fields fed by the annual Nile floods.
 
Foreigners flocked to Egypt as immigrants and traders, seeking a better life. But when Egypt closed its borders to foreigners facing famine at home, resentment sometimes turned to violence. In his 30 years as Pharaoh, from about 1184 to 1153 BC, Ramses had to defend the borders at least three times from foreign invaders. These included the Libu, a tribe from the area that is now Libya. His military also traveled to distant lands to meet foreign enemies.
 
At home, Ramses faced threats from the priesthood, a workers' strike at the royal necropolis, and even a palace murder plot.
 
The story of Seshta, Horus, and Reya is set during this time. Other than Ramses the Third, all characters and events are fictional, yet their lifestyles and attitudes are based on what we know of ancient Egypt.

The Eyes and Ears of Pharaoh was a real position at the head of Egypt's secret police. Young dancers performed at parties or worked in the temples. An ambitious young man might join the military, hoping for advancement. A poor boy might feel lucky to work as an apprentice toymaker.
 
Religion was part of everyday life, but individual devotion varied, and most people had a favorite god or goddess from among the large pantheon that watched over Egypt. (Seshta takes her name from the goddess of learning.) People believed the ba, part of the soul, traveled at night in dreams.
 
I have tried to reach across the millennia and capture life in ancient Egypt. Most of all, these characters were created with the belief that in every culture, throughout history, people are motivated by the same emotions; that no matter our age or background we can do great things if we work together; and that nothing is more precious 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.
