Beauty. Humour. Life. Tragedy. Love. Five muses of the mind. Five muses that feed into our social landscapes: our parties, our workspaces, our storylines. Musefood, presented in five 'courses', satisfies our hunger for a little fantasy, a little memoir, a little peep behind the mask. Each muse is explored for its possibilities and quintessential character. A book to savour on the tongue. Wholesome. High energy. A muse feast.

About the author (2012)

Margaret Owen Ruckert was born Margaret Owen in Sydney, NSW, to an English mother and Australian father. She studied at Sydney University, becoming a Science teacher in schools and TAFE colleges. During her career she wrote articles on science pedagogy and was a columnist for the college newsletter.

Having written poetry as a child, she decided to take a Creative Writing subject in her mature-age Master’s degree and this opportunity continues to inspire her writing. Following early redundancy, she retrained and currently teaches Literacy and Numeracy.

A previous winner of the National Poetry Competition of the Society of Women Writers, NSW, her poems and articles appear in leading Australian journals, as well as newspapers and anthologies. Margaret is Facilitator of the Hurstville Discovery Writers Group and presents monthly workshops on writing. Her first book You Deserve Dessert (2009) explored over 100 sweet foods through the poetry of language.
