Who will be the last thief standing?
The Queen was dying. The kingdom was at peace. And the ring was about to be buried forever in the royal crypt. But its aura of power and its promise of riches and its stories of magic were destined to inspire a night never to forget, "The Night of One Hundred Thieves."
From an unlikely cast of farmers, travelers, townspeople, courtiers and royals, "One Hundred" unravels a tale of forty people all both recognizable and special in their own way, as they barrel toward their future together and an inevitable clash of motives. From Farrah the Barren to Nora the Girl Widow, from Tarquis the Secret Pirate to Lykus the Cupbearer, their stories will make you laugh, cry, remember, and hope for their future and the future of magic.

About the Author
Devon is an award-winning novelist from Durham, North Carolina. She grew up in metro-Detroit in an enormous extended family and was an artist as soon as she could hold a crayon. She put together her first book-with packing tape, cardboard and wrapping paper-in her aunt's magical bedroom full of bookshelves and a roll-top desk. In fourth grade she won a Young Laureate for the book she wrote about the death of her closest sibling and was pushed further toward her inevitable literary future by an enthusiastic and supportive teacher who let Devon sing her science reports and limerick her way through schooling. In junior high, she lost a Farmers Bureau poetry competition to a little girl who seems like quite a neat lady, now, on Facebook. In college, she rebounded with local awards for her poetry, a stint as editor-in-chief of the literary magazine Parnassus at her alma mater in Indiana, and almost received honors for her philosophy thesis, "The Obligation of Affluence." She was an assistant editor for The Gale Group before she relocated to Durham and became a mom and a freelance editor/writer/researcher. Devon loves writing and hopes to keep bringing you novels, blogs, poems, short stories, and essays until well after she should have retired as anything else. She spends her time now between mothering, wife-ing, reading, painting, yoga, hiking, crafting, cooking and enjoying food, homemaking, traveling, and humanitarian and religious work. Except during the work day, when she is a full-time writer and indy publisher with Owl and Zebra Press. In 2014, the world will witness the publication of her next two (very different) novels, "The Family Elephant's Jewels" and "The Night of One Hundred Thieves." As of 2013, her first novel, "Benevolent," is available widely for purchase on the internet (and at some bookstores and libraries) in paperback and e-book. The book has won recognition with the Paris Book Festival, Hollywood Book Festival, Beach Book Festival, Indie Reader (as an Approved book), and Reader's Favorite (Five Star Review). She also maintains her blog, The Starving Artist, at devontrevarrowflaherty.com.
