Normandi Ellis, author
While Normandi Ellis was completing her master's degree in creative writing at the University of Colorado, she chanced upon the Egyptian hieroglyphs and became utterly fascinated. Thus began a dual career as a writer of fiction and a translator of Egyptian hieroglyphs. She has published two books of fiction, the award-winning "Sorrowful Mysteries and Other Stories" which will be part of the KET Book Club in December 2000, and the more recent "Voice Forms." Her work as a translator and mythologist specializing in ancient Egyptian studies includes "Awakening Osiris", a modern translation of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, "Dreams of Isis", and "Feasts of Light", collected essasys on ancient Egyptian spirituality. She works as an itinerant teacher of creative writing in central Kentucky's schools, teaches mythology and women's studies nationally, including the prestigious Omega Institute in New York, and leads trips to Egypt.
