6: About The Author

“Frank Julius”  was born in Budapest Hungary in 1951.
His childhood in his native homeland was curtailed in 1956 with the Hungarian Uprising that leads to his escaping Hungary with his parents Frank and Isabella to freedom in Canada.
Frank grew up an immigrant’s life in Canada enjoying his new citizenship being educated in Canada and finding his career path in the hospitality industry.
With a nagging thorn in his shoe; Frank found the hospitality business to be a perfect fit for his burning wanderlust pulling him on to travel a good part of the world while advancing in his career in both corporate level finance and property level General Management.

Being Canadian offered Frank an avenue of acceptance to international job postings which saw him living and working and consulting throughout the Caribbean, the USA and Russia. His lifelong professional background in the hospitality business with international resorts forms the foundation for his detailed and well thought out first suspense novel: BLOOD DICE that deals with the resort and casino business.

His first novel of fiction is centered in the Caribbean and South Florida. BLOOD DICE expounds on a corruption scenario pitting the Hotel Business up against greedy labor unions and conspiring island governments mixed with murder and kidnapping. His follow up sequel to BLOOD DICE : The RED JEWEL will tackle the struggle of the hotel business facing the demands and extortion tactics of the Russian Mafia in Moscow Russia.

In addition to BLOOD DICE and upcoming: THE RED JEWEL, Frank has also written his first in a series of Autobiographic Anthologies entitled: MOSAIC LIFE TILES. His first autobiographic segment, in a planned continuing series of books provides an insight to his life’s travels and experiences from childhood life in Hungary; to his adventure escaping the Hungarian Revolution and the hardships facing immigration to a new land and way of life. He opens the doors on life’s hard times, life’s joys, adventures, downfalls, triumphs and appreciation of human interaction in both business dealings and through lasting relationships with family, friends and the loves of his life.

Frank currently makes his home in The Kawarthas cottage country of Ontario Canada. He is an avid motorcycle enthusiast touring Ontario and Canada while enjoying his passion for writing.

  2. Hi Frank,

    It was a pleasure meeting you. I thoroughly enjoyed Blood Dice; yes I read it the same day I bought it.
    Engaging and intriguing. Well written and fascinating plot.
    Great job on portraying the characters.
    I found the entire scenario quite thought provoking; an eye opener to which the complexity of corruption can and does exist, the level of deceit runs deep.
    Looking forward to The Red Jewel.

  3. Hi Frank, thoroughly enjoyed Mosaic Life tiles – when will the next series be available? I will definitely be picking up the other two! I have been talking about your books to others that also shared similar timelines (growing up in the GTA in the late 50’s). Thanks for jogging some memories loose!

    1. Hi Carol:
      Thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to have met you. I’m so glad you enjoyed Mosaic Life Tiles and I’m hoping you will equally enjoy Blood Dice and The Red Jewel. Hoping to have Mosaic Life Squares out end of summer this year.
      Once again, my pleasure meeting you.

  4. Frank….
    I enjoyed our conversation today at Chapters in Peterborough. The title of the book I was trying to remember is “Collusion, Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and how Russia Helped Donald Trump Win”, by Luke Harding. I read the book just before Sergei Skripov and his daughter were poisoned in England, and was struck by how Harding almost predicted an assassination plot would occur based on the revelations in Christopher Steele dossier. I am looking forward to reading your book, “The Red Jewel”. That fact and real life money laundering can be illuminated by a portrayal such as yours will be an intriguing read.

    1. Hi Dave: It was may pleasure meeting you as well. Although both of my novels deal with the hotel industry, most new readers gravitate towards my first novel Blood Dice, mainly because most people are more familiar and comfortable with a Caribbean setting with many of my new readers having been to some of the islands, but not so much with Russia. I was delighted that you chose to read The Red Jewel. I’ve found readers who do choose The Red Jewel are in tune with current events and how my novel resonates with today’s news. I’ve placed a different twist on things, may be a departure from your immediate expectations but nevertheless, I believe you will still find it relevant. Of course it is fiction, but in my opinion with some very hard hitting realities. I look forward to your comment afterwards. Once again, my pleasure having met you. Enjoy The Red Jewel.
