worlds of mystic mystery

I'm Maggie Shaw, a novelist, musician and song writer based in Cheshire, where I run my micro-publishing business Eregendal. I began writing stories as a 7 year-old and have never lost my love of  the written word.  My stories tend to feature people who are trying to make sense of their existence, and are usually set in the Visionary Fiction and Christian Mystic genres. 

My creativity as a writer often inspires me to write poetry and songs about my world and the stories I write.

I am also a musician and church organist.  Besides playing for services, I run the weekly singing for health group Breathe Better Sing Together every Wednesday.
