Do you enjoy historical fiction about Ancient Egypt?
AESWA member Dr. Patricia L. O’Neill writes award-winning fiction set in the reign of the female Pharaoh, Hatshepsut. The first book of the Hatshepsut Series, Her Majesty the King, was released in early 2010. This was followed by The Horus Throne and recently The Eye of Re.
