A mild-mannered civil servant by day, MB lives in Seattle, an excellent town for caffeine-powered writers who don’t need too much sun.

Her next novel, the mid-pandemic darkly humorous mystery/thriller Blursday’s Revenge, is in the works with Bywater Books. Stay tuned.

MB Austin’s contemporary thrillers feature Maji Rios, a counter-terrorism covert operator whose work intrudes on every vacation she attempts. Someday Maji will get both downtime and the woman of her dreams.

MB occasionally time-travels to a past that never was, within a questionably utopian (but unquestionably genderqueer) 1850s Mediterranean, where she set the Trencadis universe .
