Rory Mackay


Born and raised in Scotland, I'm a writer, artist and something of a philosopher too. I'm also a social and environmental activist, animal lover, music junkie, cake enthusiast and generally rather-chilled-out-guy. My debut novel “Eladria” is due for publication in 2012 and will be preceeded by a series of short stories.
