Takhaet, my Egyptian warrior heroine, is enjoying some quality downtime with her little niece Nebet. In the story I’ve written for them, “The Battle Roar of Sekhmet”, Takhaet will have to protect her niece (along with her family’s deeply held beliefs) from persecution by the renegade Pharaoh Akhenaten and his head minion, the Vizier Ay.
Of course I need more practice with little kids. Damn shame too; I think kids of African descent can be absolutely adorable! (OK, all kids can be adorable, but you know, #BlackLivesMatter and all).
