Tamsyn Muir is a Kiwi writer[note 1] of SFF and horror fiction. Her debut series is The Locked Tomb quadrilogy. She has identified herself as urbanAnchorite, a BNF fic writer in Homestuck fandom, and says she is "a fandom knucklehead from old times." Her partner is paraTactician, another Homestuck BNF.
She was interviewed for the article What Fan Fiction Teaches That the Classroom Doesn’t () as an author with a fanfic-writing background.
She held a Reddit AMA following the release of Harrow the Ninth.
She was interviewed for the Kotaku article How Japanese RPGs Inspired A New Generation Of Fantasy Authors in which she spoke about how the JRPGs of the 1990s was a huge influence in her work. Of Gideon the Ninth, she said: "[The] central conceit, the cavalier-necromancer duo, can definitely be looked at as a reworking of the JRPG fighter-mage dichotomy. Gideon even begins the book by leaving her bed [a reference to the openings of so many JRPGs]."
