W.J. Cherf (the “Ch” is hard as in “Chocolate”) is a witty, enthusiastic and engaging author, ancient historian and archaeologist, who has been there and dug that. He created the trilogy of The Manuscripts of the Richards’ Trust to fulfill a life-long desire: “to write a book without footnotes” and to share his love of ancient Egypt and science fiction. His essential message is: “When it comes to history, there is always more ‘out there’ than meets the eye. You just have to be aware of the evidence and sensitive to the possibilities.”
