Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Barbara Mertz is an American author who writes under the pseudonyms Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Michaels. Barbara Mertz has a Ph.D from the University of Chicago in Egyptology, studying under John A. Wilson, which she received at the age of 23. She has written two books on ancient Egypt, but has primarily written mystery and suspense novels. She has been a published writer since 1964. Under the name Barbara Michaels, she writes primarily gothic and supernatural thrillers. The name was chosen by her publisher since she had already published one nonfiction book on ancient Egypt, and the publisher did not want her novels to be confused with her academic work. She publishes her Amelia Peabody series under the name Elizabeth Peters, a nom de plume drawn from the names of her two children
