Young archaeologist Doctor Judy Evens has a comfortable job at the British Museum, working as assistant to Professor Cavana. Her world is turned upside down when the professor acquires a mysterious artefact, and her life takes a more adventurous turn. Within weeks she finds herself married to Doctor Aaron Thompson, who invites her on the trip of a lifetime to find out the true origin of the fascinating artefact. Could it be of alien origin, or the key to civilisations occupying earth before ancient times? Aaron, Judy and their team travel the world's most fabled sites, from Egypt to India, to the ocean floor and Antarctica to complete their quest. Will they find the truth, or will "Doctor Death" get to the artefact before they do, endangering all of mankind? The team are in a race against time. But who will win?
The author was born in a little mining village in South Yorkshire called Wath-upon-Dearne. She left school at fifteen and by the time she was twenty-seven was married with four children.
At the age of thirty-five her husband was taken ill and she was nearly a widow three times, and this moved her to follow one of her dreams and became a qualified nurse. She found it hard bringing up four children, working full time and looking after a sick husband, but she stayed strong through the ups and downs of the years to have a rich and rewarding family life.
