Pauline Gedge, without a doubt! I have read 4 of her books and am working on number 5 and she is incredible!!! I would recommend starting with either Child of the Morning or House of Dreams (AKA Lady of the Reeds in America).
Another author of Egyptian HF is Christian Jacq, although I have never read any of his stuff.
Also, an author I just discovered, Joan Grant. I have two of her books on the way right now.
There is also a book by Mika Waltari called The Egyptian. I read it this summer and thought it was just okay, but it has great reviews, so maybe it was just me.... This book is available on BookMooch right now.
When We Were Gods - Colin Falconer
Kleopatra - Karen Essex and Pharaoh - Karen Essex
Nefertiti: The Book of the Dead - Nick Drake
The Oasis and The Hippotamus March - Pauline Gedge - I think this is actually a trilogy, but I haven't read the third book yet. The third book is The Horus Road.
