Roy Innes is a retired eye physician and surgeon. An early penchant for the arts, buried for years in the world of science, was rekindled on retirement. He enrolled in the Humber School for Writers program and under the mentorship of literary notable, Olive Senior, wrote his first novel, Murder in the Monashees, released in 2005 to excellent reviews. Equally at home in the city or the wilds, Innes...more
