Kellan MacInnes thinks he contracted the HIV virus in the summer of 1988. Diagnosed with AIDS related cancer in 1997 he packed in his job, cashed in his pension, went home and waited to die… only he didn’t.
Since not dying of AIDS, Kellan has worked as a befriender, a painter and decorator, a supermarket delivery driver and a bike tour guide. Kellan’s first book Caleb’s List was acclaimed by readers and reviewers alike and was shortlisted for the 2013 Saltire Society First Scottish Book Award, Scotland’s most prestigious literary prize. Kellan’s first novel The Making of Mickey Bell will be published in September 2016.
