Walt Mussell lives in an Atlanta-area suburb with his wife and their two boys. He works for a non-bank finance corporation and writes in his spare time.

Walt primarily writes historicals, with a particular focus on Japan, an interest he gained during the four years he lived there. He refers to his work as “Like Shogun, but the heroine survives.”


Walt is a member of Georgia Romance Writers and Romance Writers of America. He is a 2017 Kindle Scout winner, which led to the contract for his first novel, The Samurai's Heart.  Prior to being published, Walt's unpublished works won the Inspirational Fiction categories in The Maggie Award for Excellence, the Great Expectations contest, and the Lone Star contest.

Outside of writing, his favorite activity is trying to keep up with his kids. As one is in college and the other is in high school, this is proving more difficult each day.
