Having discovered that "Hieroglyph", a TV series about ancient Egypt, was cancelled before it ever aired, I decided to write a series of stories/novels of a character in ancient Egypt myself.

I'm tentatively calling it "Khemet".

My MC is a young underscribe in a smallish Nome, and the stories follow his experiences as he grows up, the various troubles he both gets into and helps resolve. We meet his bosses and his BFF, we experience ancient Egyptian culture in places other than the palaces of the Pharaoh, see the underside of Egypt through the eyes of someone who wants to right things, and we meet his wife and his family.

Think of this story as an Egyptian Downton Abbey.

This blog is the research and world building, the resources I use, and character development.
