Botházi Mária was born in 1977 in Odorheiu Secuiesc, she lives in Cluj-Napoca since 1997. She completed her studies at the Department of Journalism of the Babeș-Bolyai University, (she studied journalism at Babeș-Bolyai University), where she is now a university lecturer.

She has worked as a journalist for several Transylvanian newspapers and she is currently a publicist for the Főtér portal. In her popular scratches, her opinion gives us a mirror of our everyday lives, how we Hungarians live in Transylvania. Her themes are the global transformations of everyday life: the anomalies of family life, the internal and external constraints of being accepted, what does it mean to be a woman, the limitations of female-male roles, how social expectations appeared in her writings humorously, ironically, with easier playfulness. Her volumes published by Koinónia (Biorobot, 2019 and Boldogság juszt is a tiéd, 2016) were running through several editions.
