Biographical and Professional InformationSarah Wisseman is a retired archeologist at the University of Illinois. She grew up in Evanston, Illinois and Weston Massachusetts. It wasn't until she spent a month at the excavation of biblical Beersheba in Israel while she was a Sophomore in college that she realized she wanted to be an archaeologist. She then returned for her Junior Year Abroad at Tel Aviv University and the experience eventually inspired ''The Dead Sea Codex''. Her books, ''Bound for Eternity'' and ''The Fall of Augustus'', were inspired by her job as a curator in a dusty attic museum. ''The House of the Sphinx'', was the result of a trip to Egypt in 2005.
