About Iain McKinnon
Like many authors, McKinnon can pinpoint his exact age when he viewed one of Romero's zombie films. For Iain, it was Day of the Dead, which he saw when he was 18.
From that point on, he says that zombies topped his list of irrational fears. At first, his writing was an attempt to conquer those fears. Now that he is a family man, McKinnon's concerns have shifted. This is evident in much of his work

What Makes Iain McKinnon Unique?

Even though it makes his editors struggle at times with certain words, he feels the "spatial acuity Dyslexia brings" is what gives him a unique writing style." He has been referred to as n exceptionally vivid writer who is incredibly easy to read. McKinnon attributes this, in large part, to his Dyslexia. I think it makes him a great example for students and readers.
Iain McKinnon shaved his head for charity. That's fairly unusual, too. Especially since he started with dreadlocks. Watch the video. You'll see.
