One of the fun things about being a writer is responding to a challenge. This book is full of the results of such challenges...

From the wedding celebrations of Greek Deities, to mermaids, ghosts and superheroes, a whole gamut of creatures await your eager eyes. 

Ever since I started the journey to become an author, people have been telling me that I needed to get my work out there, to be published in magazines and anthologies... Once I became involved with the internet, a whole world of writing competitions and writing websites opened up to me. I spent a lot of time writing short stories in an effort to win the recognition I felt I deserved. Many times, my efforts fell at the first hurdle, something that many people have experienced and given up at. I just filed the story away on my hard drive and tried again. In 2010, I was doing a little hard drive cleaning (deleting unwanted files) when I realised exactly how many short stories I had filed away like this! So I polished some of them up and put them into a manuscript... and thus "The Necklace of Harmony" was born.

If you have ever asked, while reading one of your favorite authors, "How do they come up with this stuff?" "The Necklace of Harmony" is a great opportunity to find out. Kira Morgana - a tremendously versatile and gifted writer - presents a sampling of stories in a variety of styles and sci fi/fantasy sub-genres, each accompanied by a story behind the story. Not only do you get to enjoy some wonderful and absorbing tales, but you also get to peek into the author's mind that brought them forth.

A magical delightful collection through and through, and definitely a re-reader.
