The story is set during the closing years of the eighteenth dynasty in ancient Egypt. It covers the rise of an ambitious child of a farmer, as he successfully climbs the ladder of power, until he wears the crown of the Pharaoh of all Egypt. During his rise, the novel tries to follow the accepted history of the known rulers. We meet Akhenaton and Nefertiti, Tutankhamen, and Ankhesenamun, and also Horemheb and Mutnedjmet. Many more known and unknown characters appear as we tie the story together. There is intrigue, treachery, and murder, as well as love, sadness, and joy. Its a bit of a saga as individuals come and go. This era of Egyptian history, for all of its study, has many blanks, and this story attempts to fill them in. It is my hope that you will read it with interest and pleasure.

About the author (2012)

Born in Roxborough, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Graduated Upper Darby High School in suburban Philadelphia. Attended the Pennsylvania State University with a major in agricultural economics and rural sociology. Intended to become a buyer for a large meat processing company. This did not come to fruition. Honorably discharged after service in the United States Air Force. Having studied radio maintenance in the Air Force, I answered an employment ad for someone with an electronics background and was hired by Remington Rand Univac to learn computer operations. They were building their COBOL compiler, and I was trained on the Univacs I, II, and III. Spent a year working at George Washington University operating a control data computer. The work was exciting as a group of medical doctors and computer programmers were putting together a program that would analyze the electrocardiogram. Today, this tool is available to most doctors. Returning to Philadelphia, I took a job with Powell Electronics Incorporated and became the head of their computer applications department. My work was both as the computer operator and as their COBOL programmer. After thirty-two years, I retired as their senior applications programmer, analyst. I moved to Georgia to be closer to my youngest brother’s family and my widowed mother.
