Hi, I'm Lydia. My niche is decoding ancient Maya stone masks and motifs to tell a human tale that connects their riddles to specific sites. I left my job in England and am now based in Mexico. I leave no Maya stone unturned! I wade through world-wide scholarly research (and some of it is pretty obscure). I travel off the beaten track. I talk to the locals. I connect these places to ancient mystical tales, to tickle the reader's fancy and to feel that Indiana Jones magic of Maya cities still buried in the jungle. I then invite the reader to relax in a hammock, swim in deep cenotes or chill on hidden beaches.
