About the Author
Eitan Olevsky was born in 1981 in Lima, Peru. His knack for story-telling began at the early age of four, pestering his parents with sleepless nights of fairy tale readings. At five, he was reading Brothers Grimm and La Fontaine, fables imbued in wisdom and magic that would come to show his early fascination towards fantasy.
His first attempt at writing a novel was at the age of eight with The Legend of the Magic Wand, which he managed to finish three years later.
In 2002, Eitan won first prize at UPC’s “Juegos Florales”, a literary contest from the university where he was studying, with a satire that mocked university life itself.
Later, in 2005, he published the satirical novel, El Gran Maestro. Olevsky’s Gran Maestro shows a crazy collection of individuals, portraying with dark humor galore, their lifestyles in Lima during the estranged decade of the 80s and 90s.
His novel The Stone Collector, published in 2014, deals with an assassin by the name of Hexus Thorne who ironically develops healing powers upon uncovering a mysterious stone. Persecuted by the Mafia, the police, and even The Stone Collector, he must uncover the secrets of these stones before it is too late.
