A Bit About Me
Welcome to the world of my creation.
Raymond Walker Is the award-winning author of Seventeen novels, many compendiums of short stories and two books of poetry (though he hates to admit to them).
He is a guitar player, songwriter, father (of two cool kids), an occasional philosopher, political thinker, aesthete and imagine-er of the ethereal and unusual.
An all-round good guy (or so he tells me), perhaps he forgets that I have read his books.
He was born in 1962 and raised in Argyll, Scotland, before moving to Edinburgh to attend university.
His love of the countryside, forests, mountains, and the relics of his native Scotland are reflected deeply in his writing. His tales echo the dark past and history, the unknown places, and wonders of Scotland at the point where reality dips into fantasy until nothing is quite as it seems.
Married for the second time He lives in Prestwick, Ayrshire with his beautiful wife, his inflated ego and his man shed.
Not one to be pigeon-holed his books range from Romances and Ghost stories to Historical fiction and fantasy. The winner of several writing competitions, Mr. Walkers' books have received critical acclaim worldwide. A commemorative edition of the novel "A Shiver" was released on the first of December last year and his new novel "Under Dark Skies" will be out February next year.
"Cold Blue Eyes", an unexpected sequel to "Nut Brown Eyes" has just been released and a sequel to "The Dead Girl and the Wandering Tree" will be released at some point next year.
Over the Tears of the Fallen
The Dead, resurected, walk from the sea into a strange world that is no longer the one they left. An old dark god, ressurected, vengeful threatens towns and villages throughout Scotland. Our defence force, disgusting, bloated corpses, our heroes. This is the first volume in the trilogy "And the Sea shall give up it's Dead". But what do old fishermen do? They fight; the sea, the waves, in pubs and restaurants, the creatures of the deep, the weather. It is all they know; how to fight.
"Whilst I love the light, the sun and a blue sea, I see the beauty in a roiling thundrous sky, the grey darkness of the Atlantic and the impending doom of winter. "All bring thier comforts to me".
