Hi, my name is Michael Ferrara

I am the author of “The Land of the Million Elephants,” and “The Sons of Lubyanka,” two works of fiction set in a historical context.

This website provides an overview of the story contained in each book, as well as the first few chapters of each novel which I invite you to read.

I routinely speak at book club meetings, library events, and to community organizations regarding my works of historical fiction. I try to give an audience a feel for the real world events that surround the stories and challenge my characters. If you would be interested in having me as a speaker, please contact me and I will do my best to accommodate your schedule.

Please enjoy the website and the initial chapters of “The Land of the Million Elephants” and “The Sons of Lubyanka.”
