In 2008 Danielle S. LeBlanc traveled to Egypt to study Arabic and spent 4 months living in Cairo and traveling around Egypt, Syria, and Jordan. On her return, Danielle went on to complete a Masters in History with a focus on Middle Eastern history. Her travels and studies planted the seed for what would eventually grow into the Ancient Egyptian Romances series. 

Book One of the series - In the Court of Kemet - is set in the city of Thinis, and is inspired by Queen Merneith, Egypt's first female ruler. Although the ancient city has yet to be found, it's believed to be about 3 hours' drive north of Luxor. The below photos are taken in and around Luxor. These sites were built after the novel takes place, but invoke some of the beauty of Ancient Egypt, and are worth a look!
