Before I tell you about me, perhaps I should say a bit about the books, and why I've chosen to write a modern adventure series based in Egypt, but with ancient Egyptian mysteries at the core.
My interest in Egypt was sparked as a sixteen year old when my parents took me and my brother on a 1 week holiday during our Autumn half term. We had three days in Cairo and four in Luxor. It was 1984. I was hooked. My imagination was overwhelmed by the immensity and the sheer AGE of everything. Since then I've been back to Egypt eleven times - always choosing the Nile as my destination. I have visited the Red Sea, but I don't dive, and I strongly believe the sea is for fish not humans, so it's never captured me in quite the same way as Cairo and Luxor, and the Nile and Lake Nasser cruises.
There are now 6 books in the series following Meredith Pink's Adventures in Egypt, with more planned. The books are set in the present-day. Each sets out to solve an ancient Egyptian mystery, focusing on the "empire" period of the New Kingdom in the eighteenth and nineteenth dynasties.
I love ancient Egyptian mysteries. Are there more undiscovered royal tombs? What riddles does the Sphinx pose? Are the pyramids aligned with the stars? I hope my protagonists Merry and Adam can grapple with some of these questions and provide an enjoyable lighthearted read at the same time.
I'm also the author of "Shades of Gray" (no, not that one !!). Mine's a family saga, written under the name of Fiona Wilson and also available for download.
I live in Kent, England, with my two impish Burmese cats. To find out more about my love of Egypt and my books, please visit my website and blog at www.fionadeal.com

Shades of Gray
by Fiona Deal
Shades of Gray is a family saga, sweeping from the English countryside in Kent, to New York, and the Californian coast. Gray and Roxanne are the archetypal girl-and-boy next door. But when tragedy strikes at a family celebration, it sends shockwaves far into the future. They will both discover whether real love is more about hanging on or letting go, and the price of happiness.
