I'm Malachy Tallack. I write fiction and non-fiction, sometimes songs and occasionally poems. I am drawn to questions about place, community, identity, memory and loss. I'm from Shetland, and I now live in Dunblane, in central Scotland.
On this site you can find out more about my books, music and other writing, as well as any upcoming events. You can also send me a message or sign up for my newsletter.
