Latife Tekin is one of the most influential Turkish female authors. She was born in 1957 in Kayseri, Turkey. She continued her education in Istanbul. In 1983, her famous novel Sevgili Arsız Ölüm (Dear Shameless Death) was published. The magic realism in the book was drawn from the Anatolian folklore and traditions.
