Kellan MacInnes is a Scottish writer. Kellan thinks he contracted the HIV virus in the summer of 1988. Diagnosed with AIDS related cancer in the late 1990s and given just six months to live, he did what people did back then. 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, an Airbnb host and a bike tour guide. Kellan’s first book, the best-selling Caleb’s List (Luath Press 2013) was acclaimed by readers and reviewers alike and was shortlisted for the Saltire Society First Scottish Book Award, Scotland’s most prestigious literary prize. Kellan’s first novel The Making of Mickey Bell (Sandstone Press 2016) received glowing reviews.
Kellan’s much anticipated new book The Wild Swimmer of Kintail was published by Rymour Books on 10th December 2022. The genre is non-fiction/wild swimming/memoir.
