In November of 2010 I spent a little over a week in Egypt. I was fascinated and humbled by the history and culture of the country.
This travelogue isn't a picture-book; there are far better pictures available on the internet and in travel magazines than the thousand plus I clicked with my point-and-shoot.
It is all about the impressions, emotions and implications that no picture can convey, but something that can only be experienced when you bask in the glorious Mediterranean sun in Alexandria, are belittled by the sentinel pyramids at Giza, come to terms with the engineering feat of relocating Abu Simbel, appreciate the historic grandeur of the museum-city of Luxor, or relive the romance of the Nile as you drift past gently-swaying date palms and white-sailed feluccas.
Hi there! Thanks for coming by. I'm Douglas Misquita, an action/ adventure thriller writer. When I set down to tell a story, I want to immerse readers in a fast, high-octane film... only this one flips by on the pages of a book! My goal is literary entertainment. And because I want to spread a little awareness, I sprinkle in real-world locales, incidents, possibilities, and up-coming tech. The Kirk Ingram action series revolve around a revenant FBI agent. These are the grittier ones. Then there's the Luc Fortesque adventures, centered on a French mercenary - my anti-hero offering. I've got some standalones in the mix, too. I'm a telecom guy by day (still), and a writer/ musician by night. Check out the books, spread the word. Have a great read!
