About this title


Mickey Bell's sick alright,just not as sick as the government benefits agency thinks he is. Now his psychotic ex, Tommy, has reported him to the benefit fraud hotline, and Mickey needs to make a sharp exit. Where better to hide than up in the mountains, in the Munros? With faithful wee dog Tyke at his heels, Mickey flees a Glasgow rife with referendum fever for a country where crows and collie dogs can speak. A wicked queen, a gay hell's angel, and a total disregard for the legal implications of love could be just what Mickey needs to turn his life around. With its background a celebration of Scotland's landscape, this novel illuminates Mickey's personal journey from a life on benefits to a brighter future, and mirrors Scotland's journey towards independence. ""Clearly reveals author Kellan MacInnes' genuine and impressive flair for originality.""--The Midwest Book Review

About the Author:

Diagnosed with AIDS related cancer in 1997 Kellan MacInnes cashed in his pension, went home and waited to die... only he didn't.

Since not dying of AIDS, he has been employed as a befriender, a painter and decorator, a life coach and a bike tour guide. He 'compleated' the Munros in September 2014. The Making of Mickey Bell is his first novel.
