Before I tell you about me, perhaps I should say a bit about the books, and why I've chosen to write a modern adventure series based in Egypt, but with ancient Egyptian mysteries at the core.
My interest in Egypt was sparked as a sixteen year old when my parents took me and my brother on a 1 week holiday during our Autumn half term. We had three days in Cairo and four in Luxor. It was 1984. I was hooked. My imagination was overwhelmed by the immensity and the sheer AGE of everything. Since then I've been back to Egypt many times - always choosing the Nile as my destination. I have visited the Red Sea, but I don't dive, and I strongly believe the sea is for fish not humans, so it's never captured me in quite the same way as Cairo and Luxor, and the Nile and Lake Nasser cruises.
I love ancient Egyptian mysteries. Are there more undiscovered royal tombs? What riddles does the Sphinx pose? Are the pyramids aligned with the stars? I hope my protagonists Merry and Adam can grapple with some of these questions and provide an enjoyable lighthearted read at the same time.
I'm also the author of "Shades of Gray" (no, not that one !!). Mine's a family saga, written under the name of Fiona Wilson and also available on Kindle or in paperback via Amazon.
I live in Kent, England, with my two impish Burmese cats.
