Rennie Walker was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. His first novel is the mystic and shamanic fantasy Alba: The Great Dance of Leaving and Returning, set in the years 839 and 840, in the land that would later be known as Scotland. As a young man, and later though not so often, he travelled many journeys through the heartland of Alba the Beautiful. As he describes himself - "I am a Story Finder, Story Teller and Novelist."
He is also the author of the collection of poems - Gathering Stillness: Reflection upon Reflection - poems in the traditions of Ashtanga Yoga, zen buddhism, Sufism, Religious Science and more.
He lives in northern California, with his wife Kathy and varying numbers of cats.
Alba is a mystic and shamanic fantasy of the dawning of Scotland. In the year 839 Talitha, great healer and the wisest of all, teaches the Sacred Dances. Alba is the last kingdom in the Brit Islands not heartful in its praise of the Nazarene Church and still follows the ancient ways. There are those, as yet unknown to King Eoghann and Talitha, weaving plots to change this. Finally and forever.
