Read full description of the books:
It was once the glory of Akhenaten's reign, called 'The Horizon of the Aten'. Now the imperial city of Akhet-Aten lies wrecked, abandoned and accursed, dreaming in the darkness on the edge of the Nile.
Police Commander Khonsu has never believed in curses, but he can't deny his own foreboding when he learns that the city's stone quarries are to be reopened at Pharaoh's command by a delegation from the great temple of Ptah at Memphis, headed by Lord Nebamun, its second-ranking priest, a man without a past who is not afraid of ghosts, curses or the dead.
As commander of the provincial police force assigned to guard the expedition, Khonsu accompanies the enigmatic Nebamun to the ruined city, where he finds himself entangled in a drifting web of betrayal, murder and revenge that has its deepest roots in the shadows of the city's heresy-tainted past.
THE CITY OF REFUGE is a story of hidden treasure, revenge and murder and one man's discovery that the paths of righteousness may lie through peril, but they will always bring you home.

Read information about the authorI grew up all around the United States courtesy of a very mobile family. Perhaps because of the Irish in me, I love to weave stories for my own enjoyment about the people I meet and the places I've seen during my travels. I graduated with a degree in ancient and medieval history and experience in journalism.
I started writing novels in graduate school, and have produced four set in New Kingdom Egypt: The City of Refuge, The Orphan's Tale, Pharaoh's Son and A Killing Among the Dead. I have others in that cycle under way, with one, a love story, due to be released within six months.
I have written stories set in ancient Egypt, the American Civil War, and various fantasy settings incorporating my favorite eras.
I enjoy traveling, photography, and sailing.
