I was born in Inverness and I live in Edinburgh, Scotland.

My debut novel, Infinite Ground (‘jaw-dropping’ – The Times), won the Somerset Maugham Award and was shortlisted for the Saltire Awards.

My second novel, Gathering Evidence (‘beautiful’ – Guardian), led to my inclusion in the National Centre for Writing / British Councils’s list of ten writers shaping the UK’s future.

My third novel, In Ascension (‘Nobody else writes like MacInnes, and this magnificent book is his best yet.’) was published in February 2023.
