"Be Smitten" – by ‘The Smiting Texts’, title of my first archaeological adventure thriller featuring Anson Hunter, alternative Egyptologist, writer and blogger

Background Information


People have asked where my depth of knowledge as a writer of books on Egypt comes from. The answer - from a lifetime spent studying ancient Egypt and Egyptian archaeology and from numerous research trips to Egypt.

I'm fascinated by the mystery of ancient Egypt and its potency and relevance for today's world.

'The Smiting Texts' - a modern archaeological thriller, an ancient, esoteric time bomb - is my first adult novel, following on from award-winning success as a writer of novels for young readers, published under the name Roy Pond in UK, Australia and USA. (published by Austin & Macauley, UK, paperback 08, Hardcover 09)

I spent much of my life in Africa and now live in Australia where as an ad Creative Director (Mad Men!) and copywriter I have written internationally recognised advertising campaigns for various causes, charities and brands.
