L Frank Turovich (1956- ) was born and raised in Flint, Michigan to parents of Polish and Netherlands descent, where he became a rabid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, comics and everything else not nailed down. After graduation he spent 12 years in the United States Marine Corps, first as a “grunt” stationed in Camp Pendleton, CA, and Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, and later as a radar repairman/technician/instructor in 29 Palms, California.
Along the way, Frank bought his first Macintosh in April 1984 and learned to program. He combined his fascination with teaching and programming into writing articles for Nibble Mac and Inside BASIC magazines, and then self-published two books on the subject. He also completed degrees in Technical Training and Management. After leaving the Marines he’s worked as a technical writer, trainer, and technical publication manager for several high-tech companies including Metrowerks, Motorola, Freescale Semiconductor, and Nokia, where he concentrated on documenting software development tools and other related technologies.
He currently resides in Austin, Texas in a home filled with books, computers, and two cats (Java and Misty). He designed a fantasy realm called Bulinnärm in the 1980’s for running D&D adventures with friends, but secretly planned to one day write stories set in that imaginative and strange world. That day has arrived.

Enjoyed this story. Alethea provides a strong, smart, and capable woman out to satisfy her curiosity with antiquities as well as a mysterious wizard. The world created here has a Shahrazad feel to it.
Recommend it as a nice introduction to L Frank Turovich writings.
