Bill Meyer is currently a high school history teacher in New York. From the Indus River to the Italian Renaissance, no topic has piqued the imagination of his students as intensely as the study of Ancient Egypt. As a result of both their interest and his own childhood curiosity about the mysteries of that era, he wrote Horace j. Edwards and the Time Keepers. In many ways the series reflects his experience as both a kid and a teacher. However, Bill's interests extend far beyond just Egypt and also include the ancient art of mindfulness. Having practiced meditation for over twenty-six years and shared it with students for more than a decade, he has lived his life at the intersection of the ancient and modern worlds. Every aspect of his work as an educator, researcher, and writer has aimed at awakening a deeper sense of purpose and well-being within young people. Between writing children's books, teaching high school students, and finishing his doctoral degree at New York University, he speaks extensively across the country at symposiums on social justice as well as leads workshops on meditation, student stress, and of course, Ancient Egypt.
