Michelle Aung Thin is the author of The Monsoon Bride.

Born in Rangoon in the year of a coup d’état, Michelle Aung Thin left Burma with her parents for England, then Canada. She counts a Dutch pirate among her ancestors and credits the family penchant for telling tales (some tall, some true) as the foundation of her own writing life. Michelle has worked as a copywriter in London and Melbourne. Her writing has been published in journals and collections and shortlisted for various awards. The Monsoon Bride is her first novel.
