Melissa Yi (pronounced YEE), also known as Dr. Melissa Yuan-Innes (pronounced EWAN INN-nes), studied emergency medicine at McGill University in Montreal. She was so shocked by the patients crammed into the waiting area, and the examining rooms without running water, that she began to contemplate murder. And so she created Dr. Hope Sze (TSE), the resident who could save lives and fight crime.

Previous Hope Sze thrillers were recommended by The Globe and Mail, CBC Books, and The Next Chapter as one of the best Canadian suspense novels. Yi received the 2023 Derringer Award for Best Short Story from the Short Fiction Mystery Society, and was a Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Finalist: Best Thriller. Under the name Melissa Yuan-Innes, she also writes medical humour and has won speculative fiction awards.
