Long-lost civilization sparks book

A newspaper article about an archaeological dig in Chesterfield, Mo., gave Ellen M. (Monti) Meyer, CSci’77, the idea for her first novel, Chronicle of the Mound Builders: An Angela Hunter Mystery

“They found evidence of the long-lost civilization of the Mound Builders, which piqued my curiosity,” she says on her website ellemarieauthor.com. Meyer uses the pen name Elle Marie.

“I’ve tried to provide accurate information about the culture and lifestyles of both the Aztecs and the Mound Builders through careful research,” she says. “The Chesterfield Valley dig site, known as the Dampier Dig, is real, but many of the artifacts described in the book are invented.”

By day, Meyer is a senior project leader with Edward Jones.
