Miyabe Miyuki (宮部みゆき, December 23, 1960 - ) is a popular contemporary Japanese author active in a number of genres including science fiction, mystery fiction, historical fiction, social commentary, and juvenile fiction. Her most famous translated work is All She Was Worth (火車 Kasha), published in translation in 1999.

Her debut work is considered to be her 1987 short story Warera ga Rinjin no Hanzai (我らが隣人の犯罪) and has been a prolific writer since then, publishing dozens of novels and winning many major literary prizes including the Yamamoto Shūgorō Prize in 1993 for All She Was Worth and the Naoki Prize in 1998 for Riyū (理由).
