In every epoch and age there are a handful of souls who hear the Earth’s voice, hearken to the Muses’s song and drink from the font of the Goddess of Wisdom.
These are the poets, artists and visionairies of our world: the creative geniuses like Dante, Milton and Blake, whose inspiration and insights have shaped our cultural memory.
Unhappily, with the advent of the modern age the Muses’s song has become silent and the font of the Earth’s Wisdom has begun to dry up.
To redress this precarious situation, six of the nine Muses have descended from Olympus to take birth upon the Earth. Their purpose is to re-awaken humanity to the inspiration of the great arts and restore the broken links between gods and men. But, the six Muses are not just daughters of Zeus, they are also the daughters of Mnemosyne, the Goddess of Memory, and the granddaughters of Gaia, Mother Earth herself. And when the Muses discover that their mother and Gaia have a totally different agenda for them than their father Zeus, well it is at this point that their loyalties become divided and everything becomes very bloody and messy.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
From her youth Miranda’s passion for creative writing, music and art, along with her fascination with the philosophical and the spiritual, have always been totally inseparable. Coupled with her study and practice of the esoteric Wisdoms of Hermetic Magicke, Gnosticism and Shaktism, Miranda also nurtures a passion for English Romantic poetry, fairytales, Greek myth and Hindu and Celtic lore.
Many of her major literary and occult influences are from the 19th century: such as Dion Fortune (Moon Magic and The Mystical Qabalah), the Romantic poets like Keats, Coleridge, Blake and Byron and THE fantasy and fairytale writers like Lewis Carrol and George Macdonald. At the same time, Miranda’s work is strongly influenced by the hard-line existentialist writers of the post-modern and Magic Realist School, such as Peter Brook (Mahabharata), Salman Rushdie (The Satanic Verses), and Amitav Ghosh (The Calcutta Chromosone).
Miranda has also completed a Master’s degree and Ph.D in Bollywood film and Hindu cultural studies from Copenhagen University. Her field of expertise not only embraces the song and dance genre of Indian cinema, but the ancient Vedic dance and theatre tradition of the Natyashastra and the Rasa-Lila devotional tradition of Gita Govinda and the Srimad Bhagavatam.
Miranda is a Bollywood Film buff, loves bathing in the ocean and going for walks in the forest with her fur baby Shimba, listening to 60s and 70s music and playing and singing her own compositions on the guitar.
