SPECIAL GUEST POST BY THE AUTHOR:

"How did you research and prepare to write about Egyptian lore?"



The first thing one needs to have to write about Egyptian lore (or any lore, really) is a curious mind. The seed of curiosity was planted in 2007, when my Reading Shakespeare professor told us the legend of Isis and Osiris. I don’t remember why she told us this story or even how it related to our course. We were probably reading Antony and Cleopatra. Anyway, I’m grateful she did. The legend stuck with me all these years.

 

During that time, I still held a lot of fear and bias about ancient Egypt. Then, in 2011, I started writing my first novel, Daughter of Isis, and I began my journey into researching ancient Egypt. Not having a degree in Egyptology, I started my research by digging into books, online articles, and magazine articles. I watched any documentaries I can get my hands on, including every National Geographic I could either purchase or get through streaming. I purchased video lectures on ancient civilizations and architecture. I visited museums, studied ancient Egyptian artwork, and listened to ancient Egyptian-based music. Additionally, to prepare creatively, I pinned inspirational artwork and photographs onto Pinterest boards and watched some of my favorite Egyptian-based movies (i.e., Stargate, The Mummy, Gods of Egypt, Death on the Nile). The only thing I haven’t done, but wish to soon, is visit Egypt.

 

My resources have grown over the years. But most often, when I begin a new novel or short story, I’m basically starting from scratch and looking at the information with new eyes. First, I focus on the boarder spectrum of the concept, then work my way into the details as I’m finalizing the first draft. Unfortunately, not everything I research makes its way into my books. But, for the most part, I think I strike the right balance between creating something enjoyable to read along with providing accurate knowledge.
