About the author:
I first stumbled across the story of Tutankhamen back in the 1960s in a Los Angeles bookstore.
His mystery captured me, this 'unknown' ruler, whose name had been deliberately erased and forgotten for three thousand years.
King Tut became the world's first Superstar thousands of years after he lived and died. The only King of Egypt ever found with all his funeral regalia.
For years I pursued his story, tracking down rare tomes on Egyptian lore, eagerly devouring new archaeological texts, pondering the images of the artifacts from his tomb, and attempting to resolve the maze of conflicting theories fanatically propounded by academically esteemed Egyptologists and other scholars.

Tales Of King Tut
Nine-year-old Prince Tutankhaten's hero-worship of his adored older brother, the CoRegent SmenkhKare, takes a big hit, when he and his companions discover his brother involved in a secret meeting with masked conspirators in a plot against Pharaoh Akhenaten.
Prince Tut is torn by disbelief and must decide soon whether to betray his hero, as the day the conspirators planned to strike draws nigh. Tut and his companions begin to learn rudimentary magic along with their other studies, useful when they try to forestall the intrigue. But unexpected consequences result when Prince Tut finally confides in his favorite cousin, Queen Ankhesenpaaten.
Thus unfolds the tragic events that led to the young prince becoming King of Egypt, King Tutankhamen.
