To My Readers: When the idea for Love Amidst the Egyptian sands hit me, it was like the Muses dropped a ton of sarcophagi on my head. I became crazed with the idea of placing two wounded souls in the tomb of a pharaoh. While exploring this discovery, how would the two characters, my beloved Ella and Julian, react in closed quarters? Would there be tears? rage? a build up to the pleasure they've been missing for two years? The story just appeared in my head in a matter of minutes, and I wrote the novelette in just four days. And, yes, a mummy is included.
