I hold a Diploma in Egyptology from the University of Manchester. I love ancient Egypt, I'm an artist, and love to read good novels - historical and fantasy being my favourite genres.  I have also written stories since I was a child, but only now have found time to write seriously. My first series is the Nephilim Quest and I have also started a series Space Witches.

You can find me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Leenasbooks/
And my website (where you can sign up for my email list and get my books before they are officially published - for free, in return for a review) is http://www.leenasbooks.com

I have also written and illustrated childrens' books about Egyptology with my full name Leena Pekkalainen. Mr Mummific's "How I Became a Mummy" and "Mummies, Monsters and the Ship of Millions" tell about mummification and afterlife. And my book "Tutankhamon in My Own Hieroglyphs" travels now with the "King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh" exhibition on its tour around the world.
