Bibliography for the Nile Series

Note from the Author

Historical fiction is a strange combination of fiction and research and my work builds on outside sources. For Lily of the Nile, Song of the Nile & Daughters of the Nile, my numerous sources and inspirations were ancient and contemporary, the most important and influential of which are acknowledged in my novels.

I am not a historian or academic, however, I intend to keep a more comprehensive, but inexhaustive list below where credit is due and where I found a resource helpful.
