Michelle Moran's love affair with
Egypt began in the summer of 1998 while on an
archaeological dig in Israel. The team she was
working with uncovered an ancient Egyptian scarab
(scarab beetles were sacred in ancient Egypt, and
ceramic, stone or cut gem scarabs were used as
talismans and a symbol of the soul). The site of
this mysterious lapis stone in the dirt triggered a
yearning to discover more about ancient Egypt.
Not long after she was wandering through the Egyptian museum in Berlin when she came across the famous bust of Nefertiti (discovered in 1912) and she began to wonder what this famous queen's life would have been like. She found considerable nonfiction written about Nefertiti but could find no fictionalized accounts ...
Coming Soon: The Heretic Queen, a sequel to Nefertiti, publishing is September 2008.
