I have long been interested in writing fiction, and just published my first book "The Winds of the Gods," which is an action-adventure book about an archeoligist from the University of Texas. This one takes place in Guatemala and is about the early Mayans.

The newly-released novel The Winds of the Gods introduces Dr. Elena Juarez, a University of Texas professor who has broken the code for . Say hello to Lynn and Jim for me and we will be seeing them soon. richardnfunk said: January 4, 2012 at 8:09 pm. Elena Juarez, a University of Texas professor who has broken the code for interpreting Mayan glyphs. Looking for the dig site, she begins having disturbing visions of a robed apparition. Clue by clue this spirit-guide draws her to Acatenango, an ancient mountain-volcano in Southern Guatemala.

First Printing June 1995. Nocturnal Mutterings. You’ve been riding me ever since we left the house. Reaching the top of the winding road they emerged from the green tunnel of overhanging tree limbs. This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents are the product of the Author's imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to Actual persons, living or dead, events, or locales is entirely coincidental. Bright sunlight filled the car, a refreshing change from the perpetual gloom through which they had traveled. The sunlight lifted his spirits.

This is excerpts of book. because I'm just like him (the queen of procrastination) and as he has stated, some writing days are bad, and there's nothing you can do about it. I still haven't decided if I'm going to watch the 6th season of game of thrones. Trust me, if it weren't as popular as it is, then I wouldn't. But avoiding spoilers will be inevitable.

He published his first (and best-known) book, Chariots of the Gods, in 1968. The worldwide best-seller and was followed by 32 more books, including The Eyes of the Sphinx, Twilight of the Gods, History Is Wrong, Evidence of the Gods, and Odyssey of the Gods. Several have also been made into films.

A wind god is a god who controls the wind(s). Air deities may also be considered here as wind is nothing more than moving air. Many polytheistic religions have one or more wind gods

A wind god is a god who controls the wind(s). Many polytheistic religions have one or more wind gods. They may also have a separate air god or a wind god may double as an air god. Sometimes even a water god. Egoi, god of the south wind. Ilmarinen, blacksmith and god of the wind, weather and air. Tuuletar, goddess or spirit of the wind. Aeolus, keeper of the winds; later writers made him a full-fledged god.

The Anemoi are the titan-gods of the four winds and the four seasons, sons of Eos and Astraeus - namely Boreas, Zephyros, Notus, and Eurus. Although they are lords of their own winds, they all serve Aeolus. In Greek mythology, the Anemoi, or the Winds, were the four sons of Eos, the goddess of dawn, and Astraeus, the god of dusk. They each represented a different directional wind: North, East, South, and West.

All the gods who are depicted in cave drawings in Sweden and Norway have uniform undefinable heads. The archaeologists say that they are animal heads. Yet isn't there something rather absurd about worshipping a 'god' whom one also slaughters and eats? We often see ships with wings and even more frequently typical antennae. Figures in bulky suits occur again in Val Camonica (Brescia, Italy) and, annoyingly enough, they also have horns on their heads

Ancient Mayan temples and buildings are covered with glyphs that no one can translate. But Dr. Elena Juarez, a brilliant first-year archaeology professor at the University of Texas, believes she has developed a system for their interpretation-except for one problem. The unethical dealings of her fomer mentor, Paul Ambrose, have made her career, her reputation and the validity of her research suspect. Elena can only vindicate herself and validate her research by finding reliable samples of Mayan early developmental writing. she must find a virgin Pre-Classic site for her summer dig where such samples might be discovered. As she begins her quest for the site that will prove her theory, she experiences disturbing visions of a robed apparition. Clue by clue this spirit-guide seems to draw her toward Acatenango, an ancient volcano in Southern Guatemala. Born in the shadow of this great volcanic mountain, Elena was forced to flee the country with her father during a bloody political upheaval. Is it just coincidence that now leads her back to her birthplace or is it something more?

This is really a good read. My reading preferences are Thor, Mayer, Berensen, Flynn and others similar. I rank this novel easily among the best of those. The development of the characters is extremely well done and I particularly enjoyed the chapter flashes and connections between the 1700's and today. When I started this novel I knew nothing about Mayan history or culture and now I am fascinated.

I am looking forward, with great anticipation, to Mr. Funk's next work.

Once I started reading, I could not put this book down! Dr. Funk went from present to past and from past to present leaving you with "I can't wait to see what was going to happen next!" kind of feeling. The book left me with a wonderful ending and I am very excited for Dr. Funk. If his first book was this great, I really look forward to his next one. Rose

As an Anglican priest, I read a lot of theological and religious books. In my off time, I read political thrillers. I particularly like WEB Griffin, Vince Flynn, Ted Bell, and Tom Clancy. Add Dr. Richard Funk to that list. Not only is The Winds of the Gods a thriller with several surprising twists but you're going to learn about Mayan history as well as Christian history - particularly during the post-Ascension years through the mid-250s. I can't recall reading a book that so adroitly combines politics, archaeology, Mayan and Christian history as well as the palace intrigue as practiced by the Romans in the early 200s. You'll be entertained, educated, and probably suffer a couple of instances of reader whiplash as you read this absorbing thriller. I can't wait for Dr. Funk's second follow-up book.

As a University of Texas ex-student, with a degree in both business and law, I'm thrilled that one of our professors has scored such a huge success with his first novel - set in our beloved UT campus in Austin.

Dr. Funk has combined his knowledge of ancient history, current events, intrigue, plot shifts, and character development to create a very "now" reading experience. It's a book you want to read quickly, while at the same time, you don't want it to end. Although I'm a voracious reader, I savored just a few pages a day until one morning I couldn't stand it any longer and got up at 5:00 a.m. to finish it!

It's an extremely enjoyable read, and as the reader, you're in the hands of an expert story-teller. I'm ready for the sequel! Thanks, Dr. Funk, for putting this book on the market - it's a great buy and a wonderful read.

This is the best non fiction book I have read in quite a while. From the moment I read the first page, I was already hooked and couldn't put it down. The story was intriguing, filled with suspense and anticipation. My only disappointment was that I finished the book in record time and am now anxiously awaiting the next book from this author. I highly recommend this book, you will not be disappointed.

This book is a great read. The story is a wonderful blend of historical accuracy and an exciting plot. I found myself checking some of the historical events and learned a few things while reading it. Strongly recommend!!!
HappyLove
The Winds Of The Gods is a wonderful read and extremely hard to put down. The blend of ancient history and plots of anticipation leave one not wanting the story to end. I highly recommend this read and encourage Dr. Funk to get busy with his next work. He truly has found a gift to entertain and educate us all. Congrat's on a job well done.
Dr. Funk spins a most believable and plausable story while at the same time honoring the historical time line of the era. The strong Christian overtones accurately portray the infusion of Christian morals into the Mayan society. It is obvious that he has done extensive and meticulous research on the Mayan civilization. This is an exciting and enjoyable read!
