I am 43 and I read this book when I was about 8 or 10, I always remember it and when I left Jamaica I left my copy there, don't know where to find it now. One of the best books ever, loved it then, love it now. I re-read it so many time.
When A.W. Exley isn't deciphering hieroglyphs or riding her horse sidesaddle, she is thinking up plots for her next best-seller. Nefertiti's Heart is a beautiful mixture of all Exley's passions in life, set in a Steampunk society, featuring a very Egyptian theme. As our Author of the Day, she chats with us about her fascination with Egypt, why she picked an alternate universe for Nefertiti and how she shaped the book.
