episode 1: Cozy Mysteries in the Age of King Tut with N. L. Holmes

Welcome to Season 7 of Mysterious Goings On!

They say what is old is new again—even in the world of the cozy mystery. That’s why we are delighted to welcome a Nun-Turned-Archaeologist author N.L. Holmes. Her series takes us behind the scenes of an Ancient Egyptian kingdom with intrigue that parallels today's America through two of her lively historical novel series.

The two intriguing series, both powerful historical fiction, are set in the fascinating period of Egyptian rule some 3,300 years ago. The Lord Hani Mysteries and The Empire at Twilight series rely on author N.L. Holmes’ extensive knowledge of this period in ancient Egypt and her vivid imagination to dig up the past and present a relevant, page-turning set of mysteries. They capture the attention of those who are curious about what happened behind-the-scenes of one of the greatest dynasties.

N.L. Holmes is the pen name of a professional archaeologist who received her doctorate from Bryn Mawr College. She has excavated in Greece and in Israel, and taught ancient history and humanities at the university level for many years. She has always had a passion for books, and in childhood, she and her cousin (also a writer today) used to write stories for fun.
