Mark John Maguire was educated at the University of Manchester, Swansea University and the Polytechnic of Wales, where he studied History, Philosophy and Intellectual and Art History (MA). He has lived and worked in Ireland, Germany and Holland and the UK as a barman, labourer, soldier, Aircraft sealer, Trade Marks Examiner, Ministerial Policy Adviser, Head of International Relations at the Welsh Office and Principal Private Secretary to the Presiding Officer at the National Assembly for Wales.

He left the Civil Service in 2005 disenchanted with politicians and has since dedicated himself to art and writing. His large, vibrant and atmospheric paintings are metaphysical in approach and, as with his writing, personal and intense. They frequently convey contemporary urban realism in a ruined, isolated or detached landscape. The figures in them are always captive watchers of their environment or circumstances trapped by their inability to communicate. The Night Traveller (MJ Maguire) was his first novel and was published in 2010 and he has published and recorded many poems which are widely available in numerous publications and online sources. He regularly publishes articles in journals on a diverse number of subjects from International Affairs and Ethics to Metaphysics, the Theory of Knowledge and Modern Art. 

His True Crime book, The Murder of Madame X - The Limeslade Mystery, 1929 was published in July 2021.
