Taylin Clavelli has a new MM fantasy book out, book one in the Pleletus series: “Hathornatum.”
Have you ever wondered if that little voice inside you is actually, your voice?
Egypt captivates Benjamin. As an adult, he immerses himself in his chosen profession, as an archaeologist in the ancient city of Abydos. For Ben, the hieroglyphs, and paintings unlock dreams of a time long lost.
The dig Ben works on is financed by Ashari Hathonatum. For many years, the man has been looking for the one who completes him. He initially saw his heart’s match from a distance. But that was a long time ago and from an alternate universe. When Ashari encounters Ben, he wonders if he is the reincarnation of the man he saw, through another’s eyes, all those years ago. Will the secrets Ashari hides about his heritage stop their love blooming, or will others from his dimension, determined to keep Ashari from his heart’s match, rule the day?
Historians, archeologists, Egyptologists, and a host of other people have always been captured by the wonders of Egypt. They have searched for answers within sand-incarcerated ruins while Hollywood and the imaginations of millions were romanced by the possibilities of what might be.
As the eons progressed, the desert uncloaked elements of its camouflaged, clandestine past, though much remains hidden. Some mysteries stay concealed between its grains. They whisper in the wind, never to be found by brush or trowel.
Uncovered are the ruins of pyramids and cities of old, holding tantalizing scriptures and paintings of the past. For a few, the images unlock hidden doors in a person’s mind, transporting them back to the echoes of a life long lost.
Some remains hold more secrets than others. What has survived to the present day is a fraction of the lives and experiences of the people.
A monument to everything ancient is Abydos, one of the oldest cities of earliest Egypt and the first known Egyptian royal cemetery. Discoveries made at the site hold the key to solving many mysteries, and is the starting point of others.
What answers does the site hold?
What path is it poised to set a soul on?
The adventure, for one soul, started in the lush greenery of the British Lickey Hills, but it is not where the original story truly began.
I live in the UK, south of Birmingham. I started writing a few years ago, and submitted a story to Dreamspinners Press for their anthology ‘Don’t Try This At Home’. My short comedy (Boys, Toys and Carpet Fitters) was accepted and I haven’t looked back since.
I’ve had stories accepted and published by Dreamspinner’s Press and Wayward Ink Publishing, I’ve also produced some self-published stories too.
I love history, horses, movies and much like the famous cat Garfield, I love Lasagne.
