Great Summer Reads Countdown Blitz Sons of the Sphinx by Cheryl Carpinello Day 16

I’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books
growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long

Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and
Medieval Worlds. 

Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart
to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these

 If they fail...

She could die over 3300 years from home!

Tackle the elements & evil of Ancient Egypt...

A history-changing battle & Time Travel Thriller...

Fifteen-year-old Rosa doesn't see dead people...

She hears them & talks to them.

When she agrees to help King Tut's ghost find his lost queen & clear his
family's name, she doesn't count on falling for him.

She & Tut must also outwit an evil pharaoh determined to stop them...

Even if it means one of them must die.

Get it today and see who triumphs.

Top Ten List:

1.      Things I
like to do when not writing:

I enjoy traveling—I will travel anywhere, any time;
reading; spending time with my family; and working in the yard. I’m definitely
not a housekeeper.

2.      How I

Sitting on the beach in Puerto Aventuras,

3.      My
favorite color:

Blue’s always been my favorite color. It’s the color
of my eyes, of the sky, and of the ocean.

4.      My
favorite drink:

Just can’t pass up a good margarita!

5.      My
favorite snack:

I devour nachos and Auntie Anne’s

6.      My your
favorite movies:

Star Wars,
The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter
, and The Mummy. I’ve watched each of these so
many times that I’ve lost track, and my husband shakes his head when he sees
one on and says, “Really?” I just smile.

7.      I am a
night owl:

I don’t usually go to sleep until
midnight, and now that I’m retired, I’m comfortable not seeing the sun come up
in the morning:)

8.      My
favorite food:

That would be a smothered shredded beef
burrito followed by coconut ice cream.

9.      My
favorite concerts:

Elton John, Sting, Paul McCartney, and
Mumford & Sons.

10.   If I could
live anyway, it would be in Colorado.

We have the best weather—All four seasons. I live next
to the foothills, and a drive up in the Rockies is a cure for any ailment. I
can see the world famous Red Rock Amphitheater from my couch, and if the wind
is just right, we can hear the concerts. My immediate family is all here,
except for one sister who lives in Texas, poor soul. In addition to being a
retired teacher, I’m also a retired airline employee. So, when I need a change,
it’s so easy just to hop a plane and go to the beach.
