The Ancient Pharaohs


Happy Sunday to you all! I'm home after a week long writing cruise in Alaska where I worked on my next title, based on events that occurred in Auschwitz. I have been doing some research this week on the Pharaohs in Ancient Egypt. I came across an interesting fact. The slaves were forced to dip their bodies in honey to attract flies away from the Pharaoh and his entourage.

I hope you enjoyed the historical fun fact of the week. I would love to hear from any of my readers with any specific historical event that you would like me to write about. If you haven't already checked out the "News & Events" tab on my website, please go take a look at what the upcoming schedule.

Very best,

James Shipman
