Hi, my name is Michael Ferrara

Welcome! Thanks for your interest in my novels. As an author, I truly enjoy creating provocative characters who capture the reader’s imagination. I also love crafting fast-moving stories with plenty of twists and turns.

My first two books, The Land of the Million Elephants, and its sequel, The Sons of Lubyanka, are historical fiction based on my experiences serving as an Air Force Officer in the Vietnam War, and later as an aerospace executive in Washington, D.C. Breezing, my third novel, is a very different kind of story. It’s set in the world of horse racing—a sport I’ve followed and loved since I was a child—and follows the triumphs and tragedies of an extraordinary female jockey and her complex trainer and coach.

I hope you’ll take a moment to explore my site and learn more about me and my books. Feel free to drop me a note. I love to hear from my readers.
