About this Book

Beyond the Book

This article relates to Guardian of The Horizon

Print Review

Barbara G. Mertz has two children named Elizabeth and Peter (hence, I assume, the reason behind her most well known pseudonym, Elizabeth Peters!).  She is a member, sometimes board member, of many organizations to do with ancient Egypt.  Under her own name she is the author of at least 3 non-fiction books about Ancient Egypt.  As Barbara Michaels she's written about 30 novels of suspense and as Elizabeth Peters a further 30 or so mystery-suspense novels. 

Interesting Links:

  • British Museum - a wealth of information for younger visitors/schools.
  • Ancient-egypt.org, - information and plentiful resources for further investigation, including profiles of museums by country, movies about Ancient Egypt and much else.
