The Magi's Well
As she watched a pharaoh’s solar boat emerge from two thousand years of sand, something - a sound, a movement, made Trevy Evans look to her left. For an eternity of seconds, her mind was wiped clean of thought as a man fell slowly from the web of scaffolding around a nearby monument. As the man plunged downward in a graceful spiral towards the steel barricade below, her first impression was this was some ridiculous stunt for one of Cairo’s endless action movies. In the next millisecond, Trevy screamed as the steel poles supporting the fence below broke the man's fall. She shouted to the workers below, but the desert wind snatched the words out of her mouth like grains of sand. Death in the desert is swift if merciful and agonizingly slow if not. Swift or slow, like the sand, it is anonymous.

About Trisha O'Keefe

As an anthropology student many years ago, Trisha O'Keefe became aware of the past's potential for mystery. While living and studying in Egypt, she began writing with that connection in mind. "Until an instructor remarked some of my papers read more like novels," O'Keefe says. After traveling and studying abroad for 14 years, O'Keefe returned home to the States where she enrolled in graduate school to continue her work in alternative healing traditions. Finally, in response to her mother's question, "What are you going to do for a living?" the author took a teaching job. "I thought I knew something until I got in the classroom. They taught me how ignorant I really am," she says. "And still do." For her literature students, she wrote a book on William Shakespeare, The Bard Rocks, published in 2006 by KIB Publications. O'Keefe lives in Georgia where she teaches and, of course, writes mysteries.
