Introduction
I write a variety of genres. My novels for ages 9+ include The Eyes of Pharaoh, an ancient Egyptian mystery; The Well of Sacrifice, a Mayan adventure; and the Haunted series: The Ghost on the Stairs, The Riverboat Phantom, and The Knight in the Shadows. Read samples at www.chriseboch.com

I also write for adults as Kris Bock. In Whispers in the Dark, a young archaeologist stumbles into danger as mysteries unfold among ancient Southwest ruins. What We Found is a mystery with strong romantic elements about a young woman who finds a murder victim in the woods. Rattled is romantic suspense featuring a treasure hunting adventure in New Mexico. Read excerpts at www.krisbock.com. I tweet irregularly as@Kris_Bock.

I also have a critique business and teach writing workshops online and in person. My book Advanced Plotting helps writers improve their plots.

The Romance Studio blog is hosting a "summer party" with lots of authors posting about romance novels and other romance-related material. Here's one of mine: "In my romantic suspense Whispers in the Dark, my heroine is an archaeology Masters student working at the fictional “Lost Valley.” This site is closely based on Hovenweep National Monument. Located on the southern border between Colorado and Utah, these ruins once housed 2500 people between A.D. 1200 and 1300. ..."

The War That Made America
I am sure
the American War of Independence was depicted in our British history books in a
very different light from that in which it was reported to American pupils in
theirs.   Whatever the different opinions, the outcome of this war
was the same - the eve...

On my Southwest Armchair Traveler blog, I've been sharing some of the sights my husband and I saw on our New Mexico vacation at the beginning of April. We finished up with two nights in Truth or Consequences, a town known for its hot springs. Learn about some of our favorite spots.

Historical Fiction Set in Ancient Egypt, with Chris Eboch
In my experience, kids – and teachers – love ancient Egypt. It's long ago and far away, and yet somehow the personalities shine through the millennia and resonate with us today. A love poem from a young woman says, "My heart thought of my love of you when half of my hair was braided. I came at a run to find you and neglected my hairdo.' These windows into the past show us that the human soul has been much the same for 5000 years."

Doctors may be good but the overall experience was terrible. They didn't have any information from our PCP. We had to come back to see a different doctor, because the first one wasn't the right expert. Then they didn't handle the insurance billing properly, and multiple calls have resulted in no paperwork being sent to insurance.
