Lesley Jackson has always had an interest in, and a yearning for, the mysterious geographical; be they lost worlds, otherworlds or the sacred places of this world. A career in IT was merely a logical facade. Many years of involvement in the local archaeological society deepened her interest in ancient cultures and their religions. Since being blessed with early retirement, Lesley had devoted much of her time to researching and writing about early religion and mythology. Ancient Egypt is an enduring passion but other paths are always beckoning from around the misty hills. She lives in the remote East Riding with a tolerant husband and an ever increasing volume of books and rocks. Any remaining spare time is spent travelling or baking and making chocolates.
"Lesley Jackson has done an awesome job explaining to the reader the multifaceted character of the God Thoth. She includes invocation to the God at the end and proffers a a very exact comparison of the Greek equivalent Hermes. The book is informative and easy to comprehend. Information is brought down brilliantly to the layman . To Avalonia Publications and Lesley Jackson all I can say is keep up the good work. " S. Cranow, Amazon Reviewer"I wanted to learn about Tehuti (Thoth) and this book gave me it all. Not only did it go into the History but also his followers techniques. An amazing read and well worth the price!" Tara, Amazon Reviewer"This is a phenomenally-comprehensive, well-researched, up-to-date text on the God Djehuty (Greek: Thoth) and Egyptian Theology on the whole. The author is not an Historian, but seems to be a practicing Egyptian Polytheist, ... As a Medievalist and former Classical Studies major, I can say with honesty and confidence that the quality of the research and citations are very good, though the tone of the writing is at times informal. Nevertheless, it is a very accessible book, and I highly recommend it to both Egyptian Polytheists and those interested in Egyptian Theology in a secular fashion." S.E.B. Logan, Goodreads Reviewer
