Kiya and the God of Chaos is set in Ancient Egypt in an alternative universe where the immortal gods are real. The heroine is a beautiful Theban temple dancer named Kiya. She has the rare ability to sense the presence of gods and becomes involved in an epic struggle with Seth, the God of Chaos, with whom she has an unexpected connection.
Kiya’s travels take her the length of Egypt. She also crosses the sea to the Minotaur’s maze in Crete and visits the Molloch gold mine in Nubia. Although born a poor peasant girl, she rises to a position of power and privilege. But she learns that money does not bring happiness as she finds love but loses it again.
During the course of the book, Kiya matures from a young girl to a brave and compassionate woman, who is instrumental in saving Egypt in the final battle with Seth.
Among the memorable characters are Laylos – Kiya’s sharp-tongued aunt; Urshu - the malicious dance master; Ramala – Kiya’s beautiful but fragile mother; Massui – the evil nome lord; Dennu – who turns from a sulky youth to a man of power; Hathor – jealous of Anubis’s love for Kiya and Anubis himself – torn between his human and animal essences.

About the Author
Born 1943. I have had three careers – biology teacher, advertising features writer and chiropodist. Married with two children and two grandchildren, I live in West Sussex. UK. I have always loved writing. When I helped my husband run a grocer shop I wrote humorous monthly articles for The Independent Grocer magazine. I became the advertising features writer on the Worthing Herald and then the Portsmouth News where I was trained as a reporter and an editor. I have taken an on-line creative writing course with Winged Halo and now run a writing group for the U3A and edit a biodiversity newsletter. I am also a storyteller and have researched folk tales from many countries. My published work includes various poems and short stories plus a book co-written with a friend on how to train budgerigars. Thirteen books of short stories and a book of poems have been self-published on Kindle. Contacts through writing websites have enabled me to have the Kiya and the God of Chaos professionally edited and copy edited. The e-book is a compilation of a trilogy, which is available in hard-back version on Amazon
