Summary: “As a plague spreads over Egypt, Neferure’s feline kind are the first to endure the fatal consequences. Ramses III, Egypt’s last great pharaoh, has saved the empire from countless incursions, but after many wars the kingdom is on the brink of bankruptcy. Labour strife, shifting allegiances, and now this deadly plague threaten to bring a close to Egypt’s Golden Age.

When the High Priest of Karnak Temple is found dead in a fire, Neferure is convinced that the death is not natural. Her love, Sahu, who would never leave her, is gone in that very blaze. With none acknowledging the deaths as mysterious, Neferure alone will hunt to uncover answers. What she will find is that a promise can defy death, and that a sinister plot threatens all of Egypt – one that reaches into the realm of the gods.”

Q & A:

The best thing about writing this book? Exploring the myths of ancient Egypt as well as learning about the mindset of that culture.

 

Where did you get your idea for this story? I got this idea by looking at a photograph of the Gayer-Anderson Cat. It’s a statue in the British Museum of a seated cat with a winged scarab upon its breast. I started wondering about the reasons why that cat was wearing that particular piece of jewelry, and from that an entire story was eventually born.

 

What would you tell aspiring writers out there? Always write about what inspires you, and write from your heart.

 

Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate for sure
