The Author

MM Justine is a Swedish/Ugandan author. She was born in Uganda, the pearl of Africa, where she grew up on the shores of Lake Victoria, in Entebbe. Travel has grounded her passion for writing thriller novels. She has lived on four continents; from Africa to incredible Asia, North and South America, and now lives and works in Europe. It has been an exciting journey where she discovered relevant inspiration in her search for the kind of books she loves to write. MM Justine is a corporate executive with long experience in both the public and private sector.

Her passion for writing in the thriller genre was grounded in High School, where literature was her favorite subject. She participated in class competitions, who would read the most books in a week. She practically lived in the school library devouring copious pages of Stephen King, Thomas Hardy, Dan Brown, Daphne du Maurier, Alistair Maclean, Frederick Forsyth.

Travel has been a valuable asset in creating The Traitors Trilogy. The learning and exploring of rich cultural landscapes; rhythms, sounds, and sights have offered a treasure of ideas and memories from which she draws from whenever she is writing. Things that interest, and inspire, find similarities, and opportunities to connect within the writing process. She writes fiction from facts to educate the unknowing, depicting the turbulent world we live in.

Wherever she has been, she observed deterioration in the quality of life across continents. She long dreamed of writing stories relevant to our changing world. She finally got the courage to write The Traitors Trilogy. She creates stories through following movements, trends, and phases in lifecycles. She reads everything that makes sense, doesn’t limit her perspective, and focuses on what is not said, like reading between the lines.

As a corporate executive, the corporate world is her stepping stone for skillfully crafting dialogue that flows naturally. The never-ending story of the conflict between resources and humankind is ever so present in her work. MM Justine has worked in various companies: Public Health Insurance, The Military, Stock Exchange, and an Oil Refinery Company.

MM Justine lives in Sweden with her family.
