Ladner’s Black Bond Books will be hosting author Sandra Thompson for a book signing on Saturday, Jan. 21 from 1 to 3:30 p.m.
Thompson a.k.a. S.J. Kootz, will be signing her latest book Order of Nehor & The Brotherhood, a captivating historical novel set in 82 BCE in Guatemala.
Though the pandemic halted her promotions in the public till just this past year, now that the world has reopened, Thompson has been travelling and introducing her book and her knowledge of the ancient Mayan civilization wherever she can get an audience using slideshow presentations at libraries. She is also looking forward to extending her knowledge to middle school students to complement their Mayan studies.
Thompson raised her family on the B.C. coast and believes no place can beat the warmth and hospitality of our climate and people. Thompson has always been drawn to the study of ancient civilizations, but has been especially intrigued regarding this mysterious people that abandoned their prosperous impressive pyramidal cities and disappeared.
For more than seven years, Thompson researched and visited Mayan sites in Central America and was overjoyed when the Mayan hieroglyphics were finally deciphered adding so much more information on this remarkable, but relatively unknown civilization.
Order of Nehor & The Brotherhood draws the reader into that era of time with a fascinating tale of greed and betrayal as a lone massacre survivor discovers a devastating truth that both saves and condemns her.
