Kris Bock about this book: There was a time I considered becoming an archaeologist. I even went to an archaeology summer camp in junior high. But over time I realized I'm a generalist, not a specialist – I like to learn a little about a lot of things, but I can't see devoting decades of my life to one narrow study. Fortunately, I have writing. I wrote a novel for kids set in 19th-century Mayan Guatemala and another set in ancient Egypt (The Well of Sacrifice and The Eyes of Pharaoh, both written under the name Chris Eboch). My first book for adults, Rattled, involved hunting for a long-lost treasure in the New Mexico desert. These projects allowed me to explore history and culture.
Whispers in the Dark was my chance to be an archaeologist, at least for the length of the book. The heroine, Kylie, is working on her Master's thesis, doing research at an ancient Ancestral Puebloan site in the Four Corners area of the American Southwest. She finds more than she bargains for, of course – including mystery, danger, and new love. She also falls in love with the Southwest, as I did after moving to New Mexico a decade ago. I'm grateful for the chance to share my passions with readers.
