The God Catcher book by Scott Peters
THE GOD CATCHER
by Scott Peters
ISBN-10: 1489503013

An impoverished orphan tries to win a place as a painter in Tutankhamen's unbuilt tomb.

When his father dies, young Ramses' life begins to fall apart. Life on their farm had been so wonderful, as steady and bright as the Egyptian sun. Now, however, he's an orphan in his own home.
People whisper that Ramses caused his father's death. The young farm boy loves to draw and can draw the gods so well they seem to breathe with life. People say Ramses' drawings angered the gods, and so the gods struck down his parents as punishment. It's a thought too horrible to face. Could it be true?
In the dark days that loom ahead, Ramses begins a desperate search for answers about his identity.

About Me


Hi, my name is Scott Peters. I've always been fascinated by ancient Egypt. Before retiring to focus on writing, I created around 300 museum and science center installations for such places as the Smithsonian, the Washington Children's Museum, Walt Disney World and Paramount Pictures. My real passion, though, is writing books that take readers back in time to the ancient world.

I hope to see you inside the dusty pages soon!
