Mysteries from the Past

Archaeologist Dr. Angela Hunter discovers an ancient codex at a Mississippian Indian dig site. Since the Mississippians, or Mound Builders, had no written language, she is eager to solve the mystery of the 700-year-old, perfectly preserved artifact.

Clash of Cultures

In the early 1300’s, an Aztec family is torn apart. A judge rebelling against the tradition of human sacrifice is cursed and escapes his enemies with his son. They journey thousands of miles and establish a new life in the thriving community of Migaduha, modern-day Cahokia Mounds.

Evil Unleashed

Angela races to translate the Aztec pictograms but other forces want the codex and will do anything to get it. Can she uncover the secrets of the chronicle before the tragic events of the past are repeated today?

Chronicle of the Mound Builders is my first novel, written under the pen name of Elle Marie. It was inspired by the discovery of a Mound Builders village in my hometown of Chesterfield, Missouri, which added to the mystery of the ancient civilization and its disappearance. This book offers an imaginative narrative of what might have actually happened to destroy the prosperous community.   My first nonfiction book, Living the Thin Life, tells my personal story of learning how to stay fit and helps others develop their own unique plans for weight management.   By day, I work in the information technology field at a large financial services firm. I'm a graduate of the Missouri University of Science & Technology and live in the St. Louis area with my husband.
