Praise for Daughter of Maat:

“Sandy Esene has written a real page-turner. It's Dan Brown goes to Egypt with a delightful dash of Harry Potter thrown in. A wonderful read and she's got the Egyptology right!"—Bob Brier, Author of The Murder of Tutankhamen

About the Author

Bio: Sandy Esene is a self-professed ancient cultures geek. Traveling to ancient ruin sites around the world is one of her great passions. Over the years, she has traveled to over twenty countries including Greece, Malta, Jordan, Turkey, Belize, Peru, Thailand, Japan, and of course Egypt. When not traveling or writing, Sandy enjoys making jewelry, going to museums, and taking long walks in Seattle parks with her husband and their two miniature schnauzers Ozy and Mandias.

Author Statement: I love the feeling when I am writing, and I get lost in the imagined places that I am creating.  I have always been an avid reader, but those moments when I connect deeply with my story just take my breath away.

I am fascinated with the ancient world. This interest has deeply influenced my life. I have spent most of my adult life reading, taking classes, attending lectures, and traveling to distant ruin sites of the ancient world.

My fantasy/adventure novels from the KHNM series are Indiana Jones style adventures with ancient Egyptian myth and magic woven throughout.  I endeavor to represent the ancient Egyptian history, pantheon of gods and their myths as accurately as I can. I get quite a charge when I am able to find interesting intersections with the fiction I am writing and ancient history.
