For those who have wondered where I have been during this period of trouble in Egypt: I left the country just after Christmas and have been traveling most of the subsequent time in Mexico. My thanks to all of those who have expressed concern for my well-being either to me personally or to my friends and relatives. I continue to extend my own best wishes to friends and colleagues who are still in, or who have lately left, Egypt.

About Me

I am a freelance writer, editor, photographer, and consultant with graduate degrees in Egyptology and nautical archaeology. As you'll discover when you learn more about my fiction, Egyptology deeply informs the stories I write, and the use of ancient Egypt as a source of inspiration in modern times--whether for novelists, architects, decorative arists, poets, or philosophers--is a particular interest of mine.
