The Red Necklace : A Story Of The French Revolution
A thrillingly exciting, action-packed novel about a boy destined to be a hero of the French Revolution.
The story of a remarkable boy called Yann Margoza; Tetu the dwarf, his friend and mentor; Sido, unloved daughter of a foolish Marquis; and Count Kalliovski, Grand Master of a secret society, who has half the aristocracy in thrall to him, and wants Yann dead.
Yann is spirited away to London but three years later, when Paris is gripped by the bloody horrors of the Revolution, he returns, charged with two missions: to find out Kalliovskiâ€™s darkest deeds and to save Sido from the guillotine.
With a tangle of secrets, a thread of magic and a touch of humour, the follies of the aristocracy and the sufferings of ordinary people are unfolded as their lives move relentlessly towards the tragic and horrific days of the Terror. THE RED NECKLACE is not only a tremendous adventure story but a vibrant and passionate picture of Paris in turmoil and of a large cast of memorable characters.

A Tale Of Two Necklaces
Travel back in time to 1990. Travel through the universe to another planet, a planet where bunnies can be evil and wolves can be super heroes. A planet where magic exists and evil abounds, but friendship and love are still the most important things. Michael Stone is twenty-five years old and lives in Paulden, Arizona with his family and two schnauzers. He works at Yavapai Exceptional Industries in Prescott, Arizona. Michael has always loved to tell stories, even as a young boy he would make up imitative tales. Michael lives with autism, this affects his speech to a small degree, but it affects his ability to write to a greater degree. Because Michael cannot physically write his stories he simply dictates them to a willing typist (usually his mom or Anita). Michael has proven that a disability does not have to stop a person from realizing their dreams, so dream on and never stop.
