JORDAN JACOBS’ love of mummies, castles, and Indiana Jones led to his first archaeological excavation at age 13 in California’s Sierra Nevada. He followed his passion at Stanford, Oxford, and Cambridge and through his work for the Smithsonian, the American Museum of Natural History, and UNESCO. His love of travel has taken him to almost fifty countries. His novels Samantha Sutton and the Labyrinth of Lies and Samantha Sutton and the Winter of the Warrior Queen were inspired by his work at Chavín de Huántar, Peru and in England. He now works as the Head of Cultural Policy at the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology at UC Berkeley. Visit him at www.j-jacobs.com or http://www.facebook.com/OfficialJordanJacobsPage.
