Franco A. Alvarado


I am an author in Salem, Massachusetts, writing speculative fiction. I am currently working on my first novel. I was born in Lima, Peru, and raised in South Florida.

I make adventure modules and supplements for DIY elfgames, like Dungeons and Dragons. Check those out on my page or visit Root Devil, my game publisher site, for more. I also occasionally co-host the podcast Tabletopped where my friends and I discuss TTRPGs.

I co-founded the speculative fiction literary magazine Strangelet, which ran from 2012 through 2016. If you want to know more about my professional career, visit

My extracurriculars include playing guitar, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and talking about how good Peruvian food is.
