I am the co-author of the mystery/speculative sci-fi novel, Secret of the Sands. These are some of the words I live by: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain


Background Information

Official Press Release:

SECRET OF THE SANDS by Rai Aren and Tavius E.
A never-before-seen twist on ancient Egypt…

In an Egypt before pharaohs and pyramids, a mysterious civilization nearly changed the course of mankind. Now its secrets are about to be unearthed – but is the world ready for the consequences?

Inspired by the best parts of Indiana Jones, The Mummy and National Treasure, Secret of the Sands by co-authors Rai Aren and Tavius E. is a captivating hybrid of historical fiction, science-fiction, and mystery. The story covers a time before what is in the history books, giving authors Rai Aren and Tavius E. the freedom to propose explanations for many of ancient Egypt’s unknowns still shrouded in mystery today.
 
The most unique aspect of Secret of the Sands is the dual intertwined storylines. Questions asked in the present are revealed as the past unfolds, slowly inching towards the stunning revelation. Who was this civilization really and where did they come from? What went wrong? Will they ever return and finish what they started?

Secret of the Sands is, at its heart, a love letter to ancient Egypt. The authors’ life-long fascination with the subject matter brings the story to life with contagious enthusiasm and genuine respect. Rai Aren was a member of the Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities (SSEA) for many years before and during her foray into writing, and took two (non-credit) courses in Egyptology at the University of Calgary. Archaeology & Anthropology were hands down her two favorite courses in all of her extensive post-secondary education. The novel has been a repeated Amazon.com Bestseller in the categories of “Books, Religion & Spirituality, Fiction”, "Kindle, Fiction, Historical Fiction", and "Ancient Civilizations".

Secret of the Sands educates while it entertains, and the work-in-progress sequels will introduce a deeper message and new theories when many aspects of Egypt’s past, our own past and certain mysteries of the universe are tied together.

About The Authors:

RAI AREN
Rai loves the stories of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, Star Wars, Star Trek, Indiana Jones (her first kitty cat is named Indiana, Indy for short), The Mummy trilogy, The National Treasure movies, and The Matrix trilogy (take the red pill!), to name a few. She loves getting lost in these enchanting worlds and studying their underlying philosophies. Ancient Egypt has held a particular fascination for her since childhood. She feels right at home surrounded by Egyptian art and books.

Rai feels that novels have the ability to take us on magic carpet rides, allowing us to escape into fascinating and engaging worlds, where the stories become real to us.  Some of her favorite authors include J.R.R. Tolkien, David Eddings, Dan Brown, James Rollins, J.K. Rowling, Anne Rice, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, Thomas Greanias, and Matthew Reilly. Storytelling is an ancient, timeless practice and is an integral part of who we are. For Rai, writing a novel is a similar, but far more intense experience and she is thrilled to be a part of such an honored tradition. She believes that these stories are out there, waiting and wanting to be told - that they travel the universe in search of the door, the conduit, to the soul who is meant to tell their tale. She hopes you enjoy the worlds she & Tavius have opened the doors to…


TAVIUS E.
Tavius E. (pen name) grew up and currently resides in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He attended Mount Royal College and Athabasca University, majoring in Business and Accounting. Movies such as The Lord of the Rings and The Star Wars trilogies have ignited his imagination. Authors such as David Eddings and Dan Brown have inspired him to write.

He enjoys learning about ancient Egypt and archaeology. He sometimes looks up at the stars in the skies and wonder about all the amazing stories that have never been told. As a result, he and his college friend, Rai Aren, are pursuing their shared interests of being successful storytellers.
