About the Author: Author biography is provided on Submission Information Form. Here is a duplicate: Jonna's first few trips to Egypt were study trips to support her passion for Egypt's ancient history. During each visit she spent more time living in the villages and getting to know the culture and customs of Upper Egypt. Over the ensuing 25 years she divided her time between her home in the USA and living along the Nile, forming close and lasting relationships with the villagers. Jonna is one of the founders of The Egyptian Study Society (ESS) at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, has served as a docent at three major Egyptian exhibits, is a founder and past editor of The Ostracon, official newsletter of the ESS, and when she isn't lecturing at schools or civic organizations, she organizes and leads trips to Egypt.
