William Doonan is
a writer and anthropology professor in Sacramento, CA. He has spent years
working as an archaeologist, and years lecturing on cruise ships,
traveling the world and speaking on issues as diverse as the Trojan War,
piracy in the Adriatic, and the peopling of the Americas.
And he loves a good mystery!
He has written lots of stories - you can have a look by clicking the "Short
Stories" button. He has also written
Grave Indulgence, published in 2012,
published in 2009, and
Mediterranean Grave, published in
2011. All three books recount the adventures of
an octogenarian detective who solves crimes on cruise ships.
He has also written
American Caliphate, a mystery novel about two archeologists
returning to Peru after an ambush that nearly cost Jila her life. Still,
the draw of the find that could change everything we know about the
history of Western Civilization is critical: if they can get to the
truth, a truth someone doesn't want them to know about.
William received my B.A. from Brown
University and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Tulane University.
