Author: William Meyer

William (Bill) Meyer is an author, teacher, and student of history. He was born in Detroit, Michigan, and currently lives in Mamaroneck, New York, where he is finishing his PhD at New York University and teaching his high-school students about the mysteries of Ancient Egypt.

He says, “I’ve worked in urban districts from Detroit to New York City, but also in suburban schools like Scarsdale and Bronxville. However, regardless of the place or the students no topic has piqued the imagination of my classes 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 the Horace j. Edwards and the Time Keepers series.

For Bill, whether it is teaching in the classroom or presenting to a larger audience, the past is more than just a group of facts to be memorized and timelines to be shared; it’s a window into a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world we live in.
