Egypt Rising Some ancient secrets should remain buried. An American teenager in Cairo finds herself in the middle of the Egyptian revolution fleeing militant Islamic extremists. She leads her worst enemy and the boy she thinks about much too often on the adventure of a lifetime. When she discovers an ancient artifact that was buried for thousands of years, she learns that very powerful people will stop at nothing, including murder, to learn the secrets of a long-dead civilization.
Praise for Egypt Rising
From the first page, and quite possibly the first sentence, I was hooked on this refreshingly different YA read that is suitable and enjoyable for all ages! ~Dii
Stan Schatt has written thirty books on a wide variety of topics including a chapter book for children, a YA novel, biographies of Michael Connelly and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., and books on technology and career changing. His love for teaching is reflected in outstanding teaching awards he received from the University of Southern California and DeVry Institute of Technology. Rather than having one career, Schatt has had several. He has worked as an autopsy assistant, an English professor, a software trainer, a law enforcement administrator, a market research executive, and a sales manager.
1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
I’m sure I read plenty of Dick and Jane books, but one book that I distinctly remember was Brother from the Stars, a book about an alien who becomes close friends with a boy.
2. What are you reading right now?
I just started reading Nelson DeMille’s The Quest.
3. How does your garden grow?
Actually I’m lucky enough to live in San Diego, so my garden grows very well. We live near the coast, so the moisture keeps plants well watered and boy do the bloom!
4. What is the last thing you Googled?
I Googled one of my favorite quotes from Sir Francis Bacon to make sure I got it right. I like his idea that Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed , and some few to be chewed and digested.
5. What makes you cringe?
Hypocritical politicians, particularly “talking heads” who spout talking points that you know are wrong. I feel like shouting at the TV, but it wouldn’t do any good.
