I have written stories set in ancient Egypt, the American Civil War, and various fantasy settings incorporating my favorite eras.

I have owned Burmese cats for years, starting in 1980.  They are a lively, affectionate, intuitive and very smart breed.  Burmese originated in and around Thailand and Myanmar, and spent centuries hanging around people - generally in temples.

“I think what we fear is the shadow of what we love”
Diana Wilder

“There were monsters abroad, there was no denying it - but what of the thousands of people in Thebes and in the rest of Egypt who had not robbed tombs?
The tally of those who had not bowed to greed far outweighed that of those who had. It was easy to forget that fact amid the horror of the acts of the guilty. Wenatef had lost sight it for a time, but now it was as though he were surrounded by a great, silent multitude: the honorable and faithful ones who had not done wrong.”

"But you must know that Horus does not challenge Set because he is assured of victory, but because it's the right thing to do. He fights because it is wrong to hold back for fear of the cost. If he knew at this moment that he might fall through treachery, he would face Set nevertheless for the sake of honor and of justice.”
