As a lover of historical fiction, I started writing my own stories about 15 years ago. Presently my focus is ancient Mayan culture. My logo is a scribe depicted in a Maya codex as a rabbit; they also had monkey scribes. As 13-Rabbit Scribe, “Ox Lahun Ub’aah,” my books tell stories of real and fictional ancient Mayans and relate information about their advanced civilization. I’ve lived and traveled in Maya regions of southern Mexico, Belize and Guatemala learning from indigenous teachers. My blog will focus on ancient Maya sites (called ruins), archaeology and anthropology, current and past research, and their amazing culture. I’ll post updates on my writings and other Maya related books/articles. Research and writing about the ancient Maya are my main creative passions, though I have other interests including gardening, locavore eating, wine tasting, enjoying nature and of course my charming husband David and our two magnificent white cats.
