    Dr Milinda my name is Hisham El Kheshen & I am an Egyptian novelist. I am now at the point of researching my next novel. Among my points of interests are storylines from the pharonic age. I believe that we as Egyptians have not written enough contemporary literature about our forefathers. My latest novel which has had some major crtical acclaim was about women suffrage early in hte past century. I came across your blog & found it extremely intriguing & informative. I thought to communicate with you & enquire if you think you would have a storyline that relates to social pharonic egypt especially with the position of women like may be Tjait? It would be great if you have the time & energy for us to collaborate on this as I believe that this era still has so many stories untold. I hope to hear from you soon
